Continuously stratified exchange flow through a contraction in a channel

Hogg, Andrew; Killworth, P


Existing solutions for exchange flow through straits rely upon the decomposition of the flow into a finite number of layers which have constant density. In this paper we provide a solution to inviscid steady exchange flow between continuously stratified reservoirs, where it is assumed that the flow in each direction is independently self-similar. The solution requires knowledge only of the two reservoir stratifications and an imposed net barotropic throughflow. The solution includes regions of...[Show more]
