Simple numerical spline models for spatial correlation functions for slopes of the one–dimensional and isotropic wind rough sea are developed. The models are based on the modified Pearson–Moskowitz spectrum with the Gaussian cutting function. A parameter of the cutting is chosen so that the fourth moment of the spectrum calculated theoretically and the measured variance of sea surface curvatures would be in a good agreement.
