THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SURFACE-TOPOGRAPHY, GRAVITY-ANOMALIES, AND TEMPERATURE STRUCTURE OF CONVECTION

Abstract:

Normal stresses associated with convection in a fluid layer, whose boundaries can deform, produce topography on those boundaries. When the equations of motion are linear, integral relations between topography on the boundaries and the temperature structure can be found as a function of wavelength. Expressions of this kind have been derived for the case of convection in a constant viscosity fluid when inertial effects are negligible. The total gravity anomaly is the sum of contributions due to...
