Existence of Global Weak Solutions for a 2D Viscous Shallow Water Equations and Convergence to the Quasi-Geostrophic Model

  • Didier Bresch

 We consider a two dimensional viscous shallow water model with friction term. Existence of global weak solutions is obtained and convergence to the strong solution of the viscous quasi-geostrophic equation with free surface term is proven in the well prepared case. The ill prepared data case is also discussed.
