A high-resolution, numerical study of an idealized western boundary current flow over variable topography is presented, with application to the East Australian Current (EAC). The results indicate that alongshelf topographic variations off Australia’s east coast cause the EAC to accelerate over the narrowing continental shelf near Cape Byron. This acceleration is sufficient to hinder the geostrophic adjustment in the bottom boundary layer (BBL), which would usually cause the EAC-driven BBL to… CONTINUE READING
