Ocean waves are generated and evolve in space and time, sometimes propagating over thousands of kilometres. Understanding these waves involves looking at the processes that drive them and determining their development including the energy removed from waves by wave breaking and white-capping, and nonlinear wave-wave interactions. In this study, the contributors consider:

* How observed waves grow and develop, maintaining an equilibrium with the wind, being driven by wind and also modifying the wind.

* How ideal potential waves grow and develop, as well as the spectra of wind-wave turbulence.

* The modelling of nonlinear wave-wave interactions, wind input and wave dissipation in shallow water and turning wind situations.
