On the generalized eigenvalue problem for the Rossby wave vertical velocity in the presence of mean flow and topography

Article English OPEN
Tailleux, Remi;

In a series of papers, Killworth and Blundell have proposed to study the effects of a background mean flow\ud and topography on Rossby wave propagation by means of a generalized eigenvalue problem formulated in\ud terms of the vertical velocity, obtained from a lineariza... View more
