Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


On the `non-traditional' beta-plane internal waves propagating poleward partly penetrate through the inertial latitude and turn into sub-inertial waves which propagate further poleward trapped in the narrowing waveguides around the local minima of the buoyancy frequency. The present work addresses basic open questions about wave evolution and, in particular, its possible role in deep ocean mixing.
