On the interpretation of energy and energy fluxes of nonlinear internal waves : an example from Massachusetts Bay
Beardsley, Robert C.
MetadataShow full item record
A self-consistent formalism to estimate baroclinic energy densities and fluxes resulting from the propagation of internal waves of arbitrary amplitude is derived using the concept of available potential energy. The method can be applied to numerical, laboratory or field data.

Polyparameter linear free energy relationship for wood char–water sorption coefficients of organic sorbates Plata, Desiree L.; Hemingway, Jordon D.; Gschwend, Philip M. (2015-01)Black carbons (BCs), including soots, chars, activated carbons, and engineered nanocarbons, have different surface properties, but we do not know to what extent these affect their sorbent properties. To evaluate this for ...
Traykovski, Peter A.; Trowbridge, John H.; Kineke, Gail (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-03-19)Field observations from the spring of 2008 on the Louisiana shelf were used to elucidate the mechanisms of wave energy dissipation over a muddy seafloor. After a period of high discharge from the Atchafalaya River, acoustic ...
