  • A numerical investigation of vertically propagating one-dimensional waves in a viscous isothermal atmosphere is presented. The problem is treated as a time-dependent problem with a periodic excitation at the lower boundary, and solutions are computed until a periodic regime has been established. It is shown that waves may be reflected downward by the action of viscous forces and nonlinear effect (e.g. shock waves). Comparison is made with results of linear theory for the case of small viscosity… CONTINUE READING
