# Time-Dependent Fully Nonlinear Geostrophic Adjustment

@inproceedings{KuoTimeDependentFN, title={Time-Dependent Fully Nonlinear Geostrophic Adjustment}, author={Allen C. Kuo} }

Shock-capturing numerical methods are employed to integrate the fully nonlinear, rotating 1D shallow-water equations starting from steplike nongeostrophic initial conditions (a Rossby adjustment problem). Such numerical methods allow one to observe the formation of multiple bores during the transient adjustment process as well as their decay due to rotation. It is demonstrated that increasing the rotation and/or the nonlinearity increases the rate of decay. Additionally, the time required for… CONTINUE READING
