The dynamics of buoyant water entering a rotating basin are studied using a series of laboratory experiments designed to elucidate the alongshore transport mechanisms in river plumes. Inflowing water, which is discharged perpendicular to the tank wall, is observed to form a growing anticyclonic bulge and a coastal current downstream of the bulge. Detailed… (More)
Vortex breakdown of nominally axisymmetric, swirling incompressible flows with jetand wake-like axial velocity distributions issuing into a semi-infinite domain is studied by means of direct numerical simulations. By selecting a two-parametric velocity profile for which the steady axisymmetric breakdown is well-studied (Grabowski & Berger 1976), issues are… (More)
Flow patterns of some of the features in the Voyager 1 imaging data for Jupiter appear to be consistent with those predicted by a solitary-wave theory.
