Recent progress on understanding the effects of rotation in models of sea straits Academic Article uri icon


  • A review is given describing progress over the past decade in understanding the effects of rotation in sea straits through the use of models. Major areas of advancement include the hydraulics of rotating fluids (including hydraulic control and hydraulic jumps), upstream influence and interaction with upstream basins, estimates and bounds on transports, time-dependence, and climate monitoring. A number of field programs also have led to better observation of the effects of rotation, and these efforts are mentioned here, and elsewhere in this volume. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd.
