Equatorial wave-mean flow interaction: the long Rossby waves
The interaction of long equatorial Rossby waves with mean zonal currents in the ocean is investigated in a continuously stratified finite difference numerical model. The model allows for realistic specification of the mean state including both vertical and meridional shear of the mean flow.In addition to stretching of wave ...
Digestion theory and applications to deposit feeders
A general theory of digestion can be derived from principles of chemical reactor theory, and three ideal reactor models, the batch reactor, plug-flow reactor (PFR), and continuous-flow, stirred-tank reactor (CSTR), are the basic components of models of animals' guts. These models express the extent to which an animal digests ...
