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.
