# Multilayer shallow-water model with stratification and shear

@article{BeronVera2020MultilayerSM, title={Multilayer shallow-water model with stratification and shear}, author={Francisco J Beron-Vera}, journal={arXiv: Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics}, year={2020} }

The purpose of this paper is to present a shallow-water-type model with multiple inhomogeneous layers featuring variable linear velocity vertical shear and startificaion in horizontal space and time. This is achieved by writing the layer velocity and buoyancy fields as linear functions of depth, with coefficients that depend arbitrarily on horizontal position and time. The model is a generalization of Ripa's (1995) single-layer model to an arbitrary number of layers. Unlike models with… Expand
