Nonlinear wave propagation in stratified shear flows

Brown, David John


It is now generally accepted that solitary waves are a commonly occurring and important dynamical feature in geophysical fluids. Waves of this type transfer mass, momentum and energy, and play a significant role in the generation of turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer (Christie, 1992; Rottman and Einaudi, 1993). In addition, since solitary waves often have large amplitudes they can provide an important mechanism for the generation of deep convection in a conditionally...[Show more]
