Influence of the discharge of rivers on the formation of level of a closed sea

Influence of the discharge of rivers on the formation of level of a closed sea Within the framework of a two-layer model, we consider the process of, formation of livel in a closed basin under the action of a source with constant flow rate located on its boundary in the upper layer. The response of the level of the basin to the inflow of liquid is observed in the form of the baroclinic and barotropic modes. The baroclinic mode, has the form of an edge wave for which the deviation of level is positive for the upper layer and negative for the lower layer. The barotropic component of the level is almost spatially homogeneous and its intensity increases with time. The increase in the volume of the upper layer caused by the inflow of liquid on the boundary is almost completely attained in the barotropic mode. In the lower layer, the increase in the volume attained in the barotropic mode is completely compensated by the baroclinic edge wave. Physical Oceanography Springer Journals
