Littoral Currents Produced by the Wind (Correntes Litorais Produzidas Pelo Vento)

Pagination or Media Count:
In Dynamics of Up-welling and Applications the author develops the classic theory of circulation produced by the wind. The wind generates, first of all, the so-called drift currents, in a superficial layer D, which Ekman named the frictional resistance layer. But if the flow of the drift currents is interrupted by a barrier, such as a coast, this gives rise to a downward movement which in turn produces a system of descending currents which coexist with the former and form with them, as a result, the littoral currents.
