Particle trajectories in linear deep-water waves

Ehrnström, Mats LU ; Constantin, Adrian LU and Villari, Gabriele (2008) In Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications 9(4). p.1336-1344
Abstract
Using phase plane analysis we show that within the framework of linear water wave theory the particle paths in a deep-water wave are not closed: there is a forward drift over a period, which decreases with greater depth.
