The viscous lee wave problem and its implications for ocean modelling

Shakespeare, Callum J.; Hogg, Andy


Ocean circulation models employ horizontal viscosity and diffusivity to represent unresolved sub-gridscale processes such as breaking internal waves. Computational power has now advanced sufficiently to permit regional ocean circulation models to be run at sufficiently high (100m-1km) horizontal resolution to resolve a significant part of the internal wave spectrum. Here we develop theory for boundary generated internal waves in such models, and in particular, where the waves dissipate their...[Show more]
