Investigation of the mechanisms of spray generation induced by wind-wave interaction using shadow technique.

The paper presents the results of investigations of the mechanisms of spray of droplets generation by breaking waves obtained within laboratory modeling of wind-wave interaction on the High-speed wind-wave channel of the IAP RAS. For the research, a multi-angle high-speed video system was used together shadow method, including underwater illumination. The results allowed us to classify the mechanisms leading to the formation of droplets.
