Propagation and Decay of Forced and Free Baroclinic Rossby Waves in Off-Equatorial Oceans*


Baroclinic Rossby wave motions in the off-equatorial oceans are investigated with emphasis on how eddy dissipation can influence the propagation of the height anomalies when both the forced wave response to wind in the interior ocean and the free wave response originating along the ocean’s coastal and topographic boundaries are present. By explicitly… (More)
