The effect of the vertical density structure on internal waves in the neighbourhood of the intertial period
- 22 Downloads
With the latitudinal variability of the Coriolis parameter considered, the influence of the vertical density structure on the parameters of free internal waves is stuided. Numerical calculations are performed for Brunt-Väisälä frequency profiles characteristic of the four seasons of the year in the deep section of the Black Sea. Results of the analysis of the dependences of the wavenumber and group velocity on the frequency are presented, and the domain of application of thef-plane approximation is defined.
