Abstract : In the large wind-wave tank of IRPHE 40m long, 3m wide, 1m deep water and 1.7m high for the air, wind speed up to 14m-s we conducted a set of experiments to measure the structure of the air flow in the very close vicinity of the water-surface above wind-generated waves. We estimated momentum transfers from air to water and we made direct measure-ments of form drag and viscous drag quantities for different conditions of wind and waves.
