  • Directional wavenumber characteristics of short sea waves 

    Suoja, Nicole M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    Interest in short waves on the ocean surface has been growing over the last three decades because they play an important role in surface electromagnetic (e.m.) scattering. Currently radars and scatterometers which use ...
  • Instability and energetics in a baroclinic ocean 

    Kim, Kuh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-08)
    This thesis is made of two separate, but interrelated parts. In Part I the instability of a baroclinic Rossby wave in a two-layer ocean of inviscid fluid without topography, is investigated and its results are applied ...
  • Observations of wave-mean flow interaction in the Pacific Equatorial Undercurrent 

    Brady, Esther C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    The contribution of tropical instability waves to the momentum and energy balances of the Pacific Equatorial Undercurrent is investigated using velocity and temperature time series from the three-dimensional Equatorial Pacific ...
  • A prony algorithm for shallow water waveguide analysis 

    Diemer, Ferdinand J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-08)
    Low frequency acoustic propagation in shallow water is examined from a normal mode context. By modelling the far field pressure field as a modal sum, propagating mode characteristics of wavenumber, initial phase, attennation ...
