    • The skirted island : the effect of topography on the flow around planetary scale islands 

      Pedlosky, Joseph; Iacono, Roberto; Napolitano, Ernesto; Helfrich, Karl R. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2009-09)
      The flow around planetary scale islands is examined when the island possesses a topographic skirt representing a steep continental shelf. The model is barotropic and governed by the shallow water equations and the motion ...
