## Wave-current Interaction

The characteristic velocities $c_x$, $c_y$, and $c_{\theta}$ are calculated as

    $c_x = c_g \cos \theta + U$
$c_y = c_g \sin \theta + V$
$c_{\theta} = \frac{\sigma}{\sinh 2 k h} \biggl( \sin \theta \frac{\partial h}{\partial x} - \cos \theta \frac{\partial h}{\partial y } \biggr) + \cos \theta \sin \theta \frac{\partial U}{\partial x} - \cos ^2 \theta \frac{\partial U}{\partial y} + \sin ^2 \theta \frac{\partial V}{\partial x} - \cos \theta \sin \theta \frac{\partial V}{\partial y}$


The dispersion relationships between the relative angular frequency σ, the absolute angular frequency ω, the wave number vector k, and the current velocity vector U = U2 +V2 are (Jonsson 1990)
