  • Linear normal mode analysis of baroclinic instability in a meridional channel 

    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 ...
