Waves in the Ocean
Units: 1.5, Hours: 3-0
The mathematical theories and physics of surface gravity waves, internal waves, Rossby waves and other wave motions in the ocean are introduced, with an emphasis on general results that describe the effects on the waves of variable properties of the medium, and the back effects of the waves on the mean flow.
Pre- or corequisites: 431; MATH 301 or 330B; MATH 326 or 346; PHYS 317, 321A, 325, 426; or permission of the department.
