CWR Presents : Surface water convergence and divergence due to wind vorticity Other events...
Using a numerical model, FANTOM3D, horizontal circulation observed at the head of Tokyo Bay on the 10th of August 2001 was shown to appear in conjunction with surface water convergence.

The effect of negative wind vorticity and other components, such as river discharge and heating/cooling on the water surface, were investigated but results suggest that horizontal circulation was predominantly induced by wind vorticity.

The influence of positive and negative wind vorticity on horizontal circulation was categorized into three regions using the Rosby number: Region 1 (positive vorticity) Coriolis and nonlinear Ekman pumping; Region 2 (negative vorticity) Coriolis downwelling; and, Region 3 (negative vorticity) nonlinear Ekman pumping.

PS* This seminar is free and open to the public & no RSVP required.
