Experimental determination of radiated internal wave power without pressure field data

Preprint English OPEN
Lee, Frank M.; Paoletti, M. S.; Swinney, Harry L.; Morrison, P. J.;

We present a method to determine, using only velocity field data, the time-averaged energy flux $\left<\boldsymbol{J}\right>$ and total radiated power $P$ for two-dimensional internal gravity waves. Both $\left<\boldsymbol{J}\right>$ and $P$ are determined from expressi... View more
