Modelling the seasonal variation of the Florida current

Abstract:

The linear response of a two layer ocean model to a periodic wind stress curl in the presence of bottom topography has been investigated. For periods much less than the time taken for the wind generated baroclinic Rossby waves to pass over the topography (i.e. 'short' periods), the ocean response is primarily that for a homogeneous ocean and thus strongly modified by topography. For periods much longer than this time (i.e. 'long' periods), the Rossby waves compensate for the effect of top...
