"Large scale oceanic flows near shores"

Date: Tue, September 18, 2018
Time: 9:30
Place: Research I Seminar Room

Abstract: Investigating the use and behavior of balance relations for studying the large-scale oceanic flows near shores. We study balance model for shallow water equations. Balance relations make use of the observation that large scale flows are dominated by potential vorticity and that all other flow quantities can be approximately derived from the potential vorticity by an inversion relation. This study aims to investigate theoretically the near-shore behavior of such models and by the direct numerical simulation. For the numerical investigation we will employ existing shallow water codes and will have access to full high resolution ocean models for comparative studies and model validation.
