Long's linearized model is used to study the two-dimensional flow of an incompressible, inviscid and stably stratified fluid over a step of finite height in a long channel bounded above by a rigid, horizontal lid. The height of this lid is varied in an attempt to determine its effect on the flow and the results, which are obtained for a range of values of the Richardson number, are compared with the observation of a glider pilot, Farley, taken in Switzerland in the lee of the Jura plateau.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1970.tb00514.x
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!
