Experiments on the structure of baroclinic waves and zonal jets in an internally heated, rotating, cylinder of fluid

Abstract:

In this paper we report a laboratory investigation of the motion within a rotating cylinder of fluid subject to internal heating and to cooling at the outer cylindrical sidewall. The internal heating is supplied by ohmic dissipation as an electric current passes between the outer sidewall and an axial wire. The experiments focus on the formation of eddy features and the associated zonal jets. To identify how the flow regimes generated in this continuously forced system are modified by the pre...
