It is shown that an interfacial Ekman layer between two water masses of different density vanishes in time for all Prandtl number 0 < Pr < ∞∞ , demonstrating, that an interfacial Ekman layer is a transient phenomena and the interface broadens in a way approaching geostrophy. For Pr == 0 undamped...
When a force is applied to the ocean, fluid parcels are accelerated both locally, by the applied force, and non-locally, by the pressure gradient forces established to maintain continuity and satisfy the kinematic boundary condition. The net acceleration can be represented through a ““rotational...
Meridional shifts of the Kuroshio Extension (KE) jet on decadal timescales are examined using a 1960––2004 hindcast simulation of an eddy-resolving Ocean general circulation model For the Earth Simulator (OFES). The leading mode of the simulated KE represents the meridional shifts of the jet on...
Closely-spaced observations of nonlinear internal waves (NLIWs) were made on the outer continental shelf off New Jersey in June of 2009. Nearly full water column measurements of current velocity were made with 4 acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) that were moored about 5 km apart on the...
