The Eulerian residual tidal currents generated over a continental slope are examined. Using the assumption of a Poincaréé wave, the linear frictionless solution of a semidiurnal tidal wave propagating from the deep ocean to a constant depth continental shelf has been developed for any angle of...
A survey of the theoretical aspects of tidal rectification over a continental slope in the inviscid fluid approximation is proposed. In particular, the geostrophic degeneracy problem, evoked by A. W. Visser to justify the need for friction in the momentum equations, is examined. It appears that...
The separation of a coastal current into two branches when encountering a strait, one entering the strait and the other crossing the strait and continuing to flow along the coast, is examined. Analytical solution shows that the strait topography plays a major role in the separation. When the...
Satellite-tracked mixed-layer drifter data from the 1987 Ocean Storms Experiment in the northeast Pacific are used to study the temporal and spatial variability in the near-inertial currents of the surface mixed layer. The data suggest that the near-inertial currents interact with the mesoscale...
Eight major tidal constituents in the Sea of Okhotsk have been investigated using a numerical solution of tidal equations on a 5′′ space grid. The tides are dominated by the diurnal constituents. Diurnal tidal currents are enhanced in Shelikhov Bay and Penzhinskaya Guba, at Kashevarov Bank, in...
A study is made of the low-frequency, three-dimensional circulation and upwelling for the western region of Bass Strait, using oceanographic data and the Princeton Ocean Model. A novel radiation condition, which simulates the effect of an eastern shelf on Kelvin wave scattering, is successfully...
