The spectral dissipation of finite-depth random gravity waves is evaluated for a given empirical relationship between the local bottom stress and the wave field. The dissipation is quasilinear. Computations for a quadratic friction law yield satisfactory agreement with wave measurements at two stations in the Gulf of Mexico.
