Internal gravity waves: theory and applications

304 pp. (English). Hardcover. ISBN 978-5-02-035804-1.

 Summary

The monography is devoted to the research of the processes of disturbance and propagation of the internal gravity waves within the vertically stratified horizontally non-uniform and non-stationary mediums, to development of the asymptotic methods being by the generalization of the space-time ray-tracing method (the method of the geometrical optics), to research of the critical phenomena at generation and propagations of the internal gravity waves, and also to development of non-spectral methods of the analysis of the full-scale measurements of the internal gravity waves in the ocean.

The monography is intended for the specialists in the field of hydrodynamics, oceanology and the mathematical modeling of geophysical processes. The bibliography 409, figures 60.
