Internal waves in a randomly stratified ocean McGorman, Robert Ernest

Abstract

In this thesis we consider the propagation of internal waves in a rotating stratified unbounded ocean with randomly varying Brunt-Väisälä frequency, N. Keller's method is used to obtain the dispersion relation for the mean wave field correct to second order in Є when N is of the form N² = Nօ² (1+Єμ) where Nօ = constant, 0
