Advective spreading of storm-induced inertial oscillations in a model of the northwest Atlantic Ocean

Abstract:

The spreading of inertial oscillations induced by the passage of Hurricane Juan (2003) across the Gulf Stream and the Scotian Shelf is examined using a regional model of the northwest Atlantic Ocean. It is found that surface-intensified inertial oscillations develop at locations remote from the storm track after a period of 5-10 days. A diagnostic technique reveals the importance of advection by the background geostrophic flow for explaining this effect. The results suggest that advection by ...
