We seriously challenge the belief that tidal-channel data of Grant et al. support the theory for the classical energy-spectrum behavior, φ∝k-5/3 in the inertial subrange [where k is wave number and φ(k) is the one-dimensional energy-spectrum function]. The behavior revealed by our re-examination is explained in terms of a more recent theory.
