What fraction of a Kelvin wave incident on a narrow strait is transmitted?

Abstract:

Parameters governing the fraction of a Kelvin wave transmitted a narrow gap or channel include time dependence, nonlinearity, friction, and strait geometry, yet only limited regions of this parameter space have been explored. Linear inviscid models (which neglect advective and frictional terms in the momentum equations) predict that 100% of the volume flux of a low-frequency Kelvin wave or steady boundary current incident on a narrow strait is transmitted, even when the strait width becomes i...
