(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)Experimental and theoretical results are presented for a simple system which exhibits baroclinic instability. We consider the motion of two immiscible fluids with densities ρ1 and ρ2 contained in a cylinder rotating with ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19710101)Barotropic Rossby waves are studied in a homogeneous fluid contained in a rotating cylindrical annulus with a radially sloping bottom boundary. The waves are forced by a simple sourcesink distribution which can be rotated ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)A simple model of the spinup of a continuously thermally stratified rotating fluid is examined experimentally. The geometry of the system consists of a right circular cylinder bounded on the top and bottom by perpendicular ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19710101)Some deficiencies in a recent paper by Howard, Malkus and Whitehead are examined. The problem is reformulated in terms of an integrodifferential equation, from which both asymptotic and numerical solutions are obtained.

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19730101)Equations of motion governing one special case of the drift of compact pack ice are derived from direct consideration of the smallscale interactions between ice floes. It is shown that the limited horizontal compressibility ...

Array measurements of the bottom boundary layer and the internal wave field on the continental slope(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)An array of current meters was placed on the continental slope and rise for two months in the autumn of 1970. The bottom boundary layer was penetrated on the slope. On the smallest array scale, of the order of 1 kilometer, ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19710101)A two gyre circulation and inertial western boundary currents have been observed in a sloping bottom laboratory model of a barotropic ocean circulation. Water of viscosity v is contained in a rotating (angular velocity ω), ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)The physical problem treated in this paper is a fluid rotating steadily in a circular cylinder with a tangential influx of fluid through jets located on the outer surface. Fluid is withdrawn through a sink at the bottom ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)One of the central unsolved theoretical problems of the large scale ocean circulation is concerned with explaining the very large transports measured in western boundary currents such as the Gulf Stream and the Kuroshio. ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)The stability of a shear flow on a sloping bottom in a homogeneous, rotating system was investigated by means of a laboratory experiment. The basic flow was driven near a vertical wall of a circular container by a ringshaped ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19710101)The steady nonlinear regime of Bénard convection in a uniformly rotating fluid is treated using a twodimensional primitiveequation numerical model with rigid boundaries. Quantitative comparisons with laboratory heat ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)Laboratory experiments on the decay (spinup) of fluid motion on the βplane are compared with theory. Under weakly dissipative conditions, some particles conserve potential vorticity during the entire decay. We also study ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)A review of the literature on observations of dust devils suggests that these whirls form like the rollingup of a vertical vortex sheet when the stratification is slightly unstable. The linearized equations governing the ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19720101)The behavior of the main solar semidiurnal tidal mode in a dissipative atmosphere is studied both in a rotating spherical atmosphere and by means of the equivalent gravity mode approximation. The former involves the ...

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19730101)

(Taylor & Francis Group, 19750101)An experimental investigation was made of the upstream influence in front of two‐dimensional obstacles when they were towed in a linearly stratified fluid. The experiments were performed in a plexiglas channel 30.5 feet ...
