Characteristics of trapped topographic waves in the northwest part of the Black Sea

Characteristics of trapped topographic waves in the northwest part of the Black Sea We study trapped baroclinic topographic waves in the northwest shelf of the Black Sea for the actual slopes of the bottom and stratification. The time scales of trapped waves are determined. The space scales of the amplitude of oscillations are computed. It is shown that the vertical distribution of the amplitude of oscillations is in qualitative agreement with the experimentally observed distribution. The energy of topographic waves trapped by the sloping bottom is concentrated in the bottom layer, which agrees with the data of measurements. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Oceanography Springer Journals

Abstract

We study trapped baroclinic topographic waves in the northwest shelf of the Black Sea for the actual slopes of the bottom and stratification. The time scales of trapped waves are determined. The space scales of the amplitude of oscillations are computed. It is shown that the vertical distribution of the amplitude of oscillations is in qualitative agreement with the experimentally observed distribution. The energy of topographic waves trapped by the sloping bottom is concentrated in the bottom layer, which agrees with the data of measurements.
