Analysis of Observations and Methods of Calculating Hydrophysical Fields of the Ocean


The non-linear effects induced when a long wave propagates in a strait of arbitrary cross-section are investigated. Comparative analysis of the wave parameters for straits with different geometries is carried out. The relationships between the wave amplitudinal characteristics, the non-linearity scales, and the parameters of the strait's cross-section are considered.
