Rossby waves in ” shallow water ” magnetohydrodynamics


Aims. The influence of a toroidal magnetic field on the dynamics of Rossby waves in a thin layer of ideal conductive fluid on a rotating sphere is studied in the " shallow water " magnetohydrodynamic approximation for the first time. Methods. Dispersion relations for magnetic Rossby waves are derived analytically in Cartesian and spherical coordinates… (More)
