Green’s functions for Rossby waves
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 02 October 2017
Compact solutions are presented for planetary, non-divergent, barotropic Rossby waves generated by (i) an impulsive point source and (ii) a sustained point source of curl of wind stress. Previously, only cumbersome integral expressions were known, rendering them practically useless. Our simple expressions allow for immediate numerical visualization/animation and further mathematical analysis.
