Forced Waves in a Bounded Basin with Two Pycnoclines

Forced Waves in a Bounded Basin with Two Pycnoclines The behavior of waves induced in a continuously stratified fluid with two pycnoclines by periodic variations of pressure on the free surface is studied within the framework of the linear theory by taking into account the action of the Coriolis force.

Abstract

The behavior of waves induced in a continuously stratified fluid with two pycnoclines by periodic variations of pressure on the free surface is studied within the framework of the linear theory by taking into account the action of the Coriolis force. The fluid fills a bounded basin of constant depth. We establish the dependences of the amplitudes and velocities of waves on the period of disturbing pressure. The process of transition of generated waves from the barotropic character of propagation to baroclinic with changes in the period of disturbing pressure is studied in detail.
