Abstract:

A series of statistical field characteristics of horizontal velocity components in the ocean are calculated by using the method of analytical filtering of the investigated functions in different filter passbands. It it shown that the spectral energy density function of velocity fluctuations is in good agreement with the 53 power law up to 24-h fluctuation periods. The values of a series of terms in the equation of motion of ocean waters are also estimated. Author
