MSCI 520 - Principles of Coastal and Ocean Dynamics


Spring, even years (3) Friedrichs

Following a review of the governing equations, the lectures and discussions of this course will survey key dynamics of circulation and waves in ocean, shelf and in estuarine environments. Topics to be covered include fundamentals of wind and density-driven flow, and aspects of fronts, mixing and secondary circulation. Time-dependent motion such as surface gravity waves, internal waves, and coastally trapped waves and tides also will be discussed.
