Stratified rotating edge waves

  • Author(s): Llewellyn Smith, Stefan G
  • et al.

The dispersion relation is found for edge waves in a rotating stratified fluid over a constant sloping bottom. The dispersion relation is then extended to the case of arbitrary gentle bottom bathymetry. Superinertial trapped modes do not exist in the rigid-lid Boussinesq case. The effect of some of the approximations that have been made in this problem is discussed.
