Abstract:

The formation of hydraulic jumps in a rotating, continuously stratified, Boussinesq fluid is investigated. A scale analysis indicates that jump-formation cases should be separated from non-jump cases by the curve FAR sub O squared where Ro and F are the initial Rossby and Froude numbers, respectively. Numerical solutions verify the curve up to F0.3 and show that A is in the range 6.0 to 7.5. The solutions for F-1.0 are examined in considerable detail. Author
