A computer program for calculating frequencies and modal structure of free coastal-trapped waves
Wilkin, John L.
MetadataShow full item record
A listing and full documentation is presented for a FORTRAN computer program which computes the dispersion curves and across-shelf modal structures of free coastal-trapped waves in a coastal channel. The three velocity components, mass transport streamfunction, and density and pressure perturbation fields are .computed. The solution procedure used (horizontal finite differences on a staggered grid and an expansion in the vertical in terms of modified Chebyshev polynomials) makes the solution compatible (without interpolation) with the numerical scheme employed in the Haidvogel et al. (1988) primitive equation ocean circulation model.

Schlee, John Stevens; Webster, Jacqueline (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1965-08)The computer program presented here seeks to improve estimation of statistical parameters for grain-size data by use of interpolated values. Interpolation is made by fitting a series of overlapping parabolas to the data, ...
