    A search of the ASTIS database for "bi cases" has found the following records, which are sorted by first author.. CASES, Leg 8 () CCGS Amundsen cruise & preliminary data report June 23 - August 5, Québec, Québec: Université Laval, A brief introduction to the general subject of baroclinic-barotropic instability is given in chapter I followed by a discussion of the work done in the following chapters. In chapter II a three-layer model is derived to study the stability of large-scale oceanic zonal flows over topography to quasi-geostrophic wave perturbations. The mean density profile employed has upper and lower layers of.

    The waves corresponding to the geostrophic mode are Rossby-type waves with a frequency small compared with the Coriolis or inertial frequency Uk,k 10 5 10 6 s 1. Rossby waves are quasi-geostrophic ( f 2), hydrostatically balanced, and the ow is quasi-horizontal (n,H --U,L), and therefore quasi-nondivergent (v h 0).3/5(2). At, and, i.e. the shape of is determined by the initial condition. Eq. () means that is constant along the line. In order to satisfy the initial condition (), we chose. Thus is the solution to the differential equation () which satises the initial condition.

    The flow rate is found to be approximately m3 h−1, the evaporation rate m3 h−1, the seepage rate 01 m3 h−1. It is clear upon comparison of the three that the flow rate is the most important process (it is five to seven orders of magnitude larger than the others). 1/4 on homework, 1/4 on each of two midterms (closed book, in class), and 1/4 on final (closed book, in class) The final will emphasize the latter part of the course, and will be held during finals week. non-divergent current Fjortoft’s Theorem Kinetic energy and enstrophy conservation in two-dimensional non-divergent.

Question B4: Confirm that the geostrophic and non-divergent winds agree quite well, i.e. that their differences are smaller than the difference between true and geostrophic wind. I suspect that there may be problems near the model boundaries.

PART B: REPEAT LAB ASSIGNMENT #4 WITH THE NON-DIVERGENT Size: 68KB. QG model emphasizes role of horizontal divergence, i.e.

geostrophic wind (on an f plane**) is non-divergent, so interest is the ageostrophic wind above the friction layer, horiz.

Then, derive and plot the velocity potential and stream function with overlays of the divergent and rotational wind components.

This was mentioned in the lecture notes and you should prove it to yourself. Since the geostrophic wind is pretty much non-divergent, it will not induce any vertical motion in the atmosphere.

In gradient balance, the flow is curved, introducing the effect ofFile Size: 1MB. Moreover, the non-divergent prob- lem has also been solved (section 4) and a comparison between divergent and non-divergent solutions is presented (section 5). The two solutions are found to be substantially different for frequencies larger than the highest eigenfrequency of the system, despite the small value of the divergence parameter (O(10 Cited by: 5.

Geostrophic Wind -- The wind that flows parallel to height contours or isobars resulting from an exact balance between the pressure gradient acceleration and the Coriolis acceleration.

Let's see to what extent we can use the "geostrophic" wind idea to explain the real wind we see at the various scales we've already defined. On the other hand, for forcing with the longer periods, the wave response closely following free Rossby-wave structures, asymptotically approaches to a non-divergent state.

Unlike geostrophic flow, ageostrophic flow is not horizontally non-divergent; on the contrary, its divergence drives vertical motion because, in pressure coordinates, Eq.() can be written (if fis constant, so that geostrophic flow is horizontally non-divergent): ∇p uag+ ∂ω ∂p =0 This has implications for the behavior of weather File Size: 3MB.

The zonal winds blow westward (in the same direction as the planet rotation) with a nearly constant speed of \(\sim ~\mathrm{m}\, \mathrm{s}^{-1}\) at the cloud tops (65–70 km altitude) from.

(2D non-divergence is a somewhat restrictive assumption for the ocean. The geostrophic velocities are 2D non-divergent, but deviations occur at smaller scales, where the Rossby number is order one.

At such scales, the flow is also less 2D, so a shift to 3D might be considered). Using (7), R i i can be written:Cited by: 2.

This is actually one of the few series in which we are able to determine a formula for the general term in the sequence of partial fractions.

However, in this section we are more interested in the general idea of convergence and divergence and so we’ll put off discussing the process for finding the formula until the next section.

The second case arises when there is a strong cancellation between the two horizontal components of the divergence. This happens when the Rossby number is small; the horizontal flow is then approximately non-divergent, and the divergence and hence @[email protected] are smaller by a factor Ro than suggested by the most obvious scaling.

Remember, the pressure gradient force flows down gradient from high to low pressure, and the Coriolis force points 90 to the right of the velocity vector in the Northern Hemisphere.
