We study the free decay of capillary turbulence on the charged surface of liquid hydrogen. Contrary to expectations based on the existing self-similar theory of nonstationary wave turbulent processes in ideal liquid, we find that decay begins from the high frequency end of the spectral range, while most of the energy remains localized at low frequencies. We show that finite damping of the waves changes qualitatively the character of the turbulent decay. Numerical calculations based on this idea agree well with the experimental data.
