  • Meacham, Stephen P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-06)
    Several problems are addressed herein. They are loosely connected by the theme of resonant triad interactions. The main topic is the finite amplitude evolution of weakly unstable, linear eigenmodes in a meridionally ...
  • Arbic, Brian K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-08)
    The plausibility of local baroclinic instability as a generation mechanism for midocean mesoscale eddies is examined with a two-layer, quasi-geostrophic (QG) model forced by an imposed, horizontally homogeneous, vertically ...
  • Walker, Alison (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-03)
    Numerical solutions of the unstable, growing modes are found for the two-layer inviscid quasigeostrophic equations in a meridional channel. A steady mean flow in the N-S direction is imposed in the upper layer, and it ...
