On the lowest gravitational mode of eigen oscillations in the world ocean: Part 2

  • 27 Accesses

  • 2 Citations

Abstract

It is shown that the spectrum of eigen oscillations of the world ocean incorporates a mode with a period of about 100 h. It results from narrow straits connecting separate oceanic basins. The mode's spatial structure is described and found to be due to the numerical solution of a spectral problem.
