Abstract

The transient and stationary flow fields produced when initial zonal solid body rotation currents flow over topography is studied in spherical barotropic models for eastward and westward flow directions and with variable and constant Coriolis parameters (f). Fully nonlinear analytical solutions are obtained using the methods of equilibrium statistical mechanics and are compared with linearized solutions and with the qualitative results of previous laboratory and numerical experiments.-from Author
