Abstract:

The inviscid barotropic vorticity equation is integrated under a variety of assumed initial and boundary conditions corresponding to linear and nonlinear box modes, forced nonlinear box modes, north wall forced modes, and linear and nonlinear Rossby waves with and without mean advection. The former two classes of problems are defined within a closed domain. The latter two are partially or totally open to a specified external environment and therefore represent prototype limited-area calculations for the ocean.
