12.809 Hydraulic Phenomena in Geophysical Fluid Flows


Class Info

Examination of the hydraulics of nonrotating flows (Long's experiments, hydraulic control, upstream influence, nonlinear wave steepening, hydraulic jump and bores, application to severe downslope winds). Other topics may include: nonrotating stratified flows (two-layer hydraulics, virtual and approach controls, maximal and submaximal flow, application to the Strait of Gibraltar and the Bab al Mandab); and deep ocean straits and sills (steady theories for rotating channel flow, nonlinear Kelvin and frontal waves, rotating hydraulic jumps, geostrophic adjustment in a rotating channel, and applications to the Denmark Strait and other deep passages).

This class has no prerequisites.

12.809 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by L. Pratt and K. Helfrich (WHOI).

This class counts for a total of 9 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
