Geometry of shallow-water dynamics with thermodynamics

  title={Geometry of shallow-water dynamics with thermodynamics},
  author={F. Beron-Vera},
We review the geometric structure of the ILPE model, a rotating shallow-water model with variable buoyancy, thus sometimes called “thermal” shallow-water model. We start by discussing the Euler–Poincaré equations for rigid body dynamics and the generalized Hamiltonian structure of the system. We then reveal similar geometric structure for the ILPE. We show, in particular, that the model equations and its (Lie– Poisson) Hamiltonian structure can be deduced from Morrison and Greene’s (1980… Expand

A popular method used to incorporate thermodynamic processes in a shallow water model (e.g. one used to study the upper layer of the ocean) is to allow for density variations in time and horizontalExpand

Abstract With the purpose of studying the upper part of the ocean, the shallow water equations (in a `reduced gravity' setting) have been extended in the last decades by allowing for horizontal andExpand

Symmetries and conservation laws for internal gravity waves
The nonlinear evolution of stably stratified incompressible fluid in the ’’f‐plane’’ (or non‐rotating) is constrained by the existence of several conservation laws; e.g., those of density, potentialExpand
The Hamiltonian structure for dynamic free boundary problems
Hamiltonian structures for 2- or 3-dimensional incompressible flows with a free boundary are determined which generalize a previous structure of Zakharov for irrotational flow. Our Poisson bracket isExpand
