Laminar separation of colliding western boundary currents
Abstract:A barotropic model is employed to study the dynamics of colliding jets along a western boundary. To isolate the processes at the western wall we use a regional model where two opposing jets are induced by prescribing narrow inflows at the northern and southern edges of the computational domain. The fluid is withdrawn from the domain on the eastern side.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Marine Research publishes peer-reviewed research articles covering a broad array of topics in physical, biological and chemical oceanography. Articles that deal with processes, as well as those that report significant observations, are welcome. In the area of biology, studies involving coupling between ecological and physical processes are preferred over those that report systematics. Authors benefit from thorough reviews of their manuscripts, where an attempt is made to maximize clarity. The time between submission and publication is kept to a minimum; there is no page charge.
