    In the thread http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/hydrodynamics-aerodynamics/turbulence-level-ocean-47143.html
    I posted a report that contained in figure 1 a diagram that described the turbulence level in the ocean as a function of dissipation rate and ship speed. Incidentally I revisited the excel file that I used to produce this diagram and found an embarrassing error. The correction changes significantly the diagram. Please download the corrected paper:
