Abstract

A plane problem of generation of barotropic seiches in a bounded rotating basin by traveling atmospheric fronts is studied within the framework of the linear theory of long waves. The front is characterized by disturbances of the baric field and the corresponding field of tangential wind stresses. We deduce the modified Ackerblom formulas for the wind stresses according to the given anomalies of atmospheric pressure in which the uniform transport of disturbances of the baric field is taken into account. We perform the numerical analyses of the dependences of the amplitudes of oscillations of fluid in the basin on the parameters of the atmospheric front and the choice of the formulas for the tangential wind stresses. The influence of the wind stresses leads to significant quantitative and qualitative changes in the oscillations of fluid in the basin as compared with the case of pure baric action.
