The low-frequency linear eigenmodes of the reduced-gravity shallow-water equations with weak friction are calculated numerically and using an analytic approximation. For basins with a large variation of the Coriolis parameter, large-scale eigenmodes emerge: the eigenfrequencies are integer multiples of the frequency for the gravest mode, which, in turn, has a period given by the transit time of the slowest long Rossby wave. The efolding decay times are comparable to the period and independent… CONTINUE READING
