Though thermal effects dominate steric changes in sea level, the long-period contribution of thermal expansion to sea level is uncertain. Nerem et al. found that a global map of sea surface temperature (SST) trends and a corresponding map of TOPEX/Poseidon-derived sea surface height (SSH) trends...
The recently proposed analytical theory of Nof and Pichevin describing the intimate relationship between retroflecting currents and the production of rings is examined numerically and applied to the Agulhas Current. Using a reduced-gravity 1½½-layer primitive equation model of the Bleck and...
The adjustment of estuarine circulation and density to changes in river flow and tidal mixing is investigated using analytical and numerical models. Tidally averaged momentum and salinity equations in a rectangular estuary are vertically averaged over two levels, resulting in equations that are...
Amplified motions in vortices have been observed in Gulf Stream rings and over seamounts. This paper uses the near-inertial oscillation approximation to model near-inertial motions in the presence of a barotropic vortical background flow. The resulting trapped modes are calculated: there is...
