After publishing a book titled Ocean Circulation Physics (Academic Press, ), Stern dedicated an increasing amount of time and effort to the investigation of vortices. He is credited with the modon solution (Section ), and seminal studies of jets and jet-vortex interactions, complementing his theoretical results with original and Cited by: 3. We study the influence of bottom topography on the interaction of two identical vortices in a two-layer, quasi-geostrophic model. The two vortices have piecewise-uniform potential vorticity and are lying in the upper layer of the model. The topography is a smooth bottom slope. For two cyclones, topography modifies the merger critical distance and the merger efficiency: the Cited by: 1.

This paper presents a model which yields examples of stable vortices in a continuously stratified rotating fluid, thus providing a possible explanation of the observed longevity of oceanic eddies. The model is based on two assumptions. Firstly, the ocean comprises a thin upper (active) layer and a thick lower (passive) one, with large and small vertical gradients of density, by: 1. useful for modelling vortex-induced oscillations or rotations of bodies in fluids. Then follows a twenty-page chapter on turbulent vortices, which, in my opinion, is out of date. One could write an entire book on this subject, for instance including some of the numerical simulation results for three-dimensional Navier{Stokes turbulence that.

But stable vortices can also undergo unsteady evolutions when perturbed by environmental effects, likelarge-scale shear or strain fields, β-effect or topography.

Changes in vortex shapes can also result from vortex interactions. such as the pairing, merger or vertical alignment of two vortices, which depend on their relative polarities and by: It is also shown that if ϵ a is much smaller than the active‐to‐passive depth ratio δ, vortices become nearly barotropic and are not suitable for modeling oceanic eddies.

However, since in the “real” ocean δ ∼ ϵ a ∼, the results obtained are sufficient for explaining the observed longevity of mesoscale : Eugene Benilov. Modelling the vortices in jet engines Supersonic jet physics is hellishly complicated, but Chinese researchers are making gains in.

Oceanic vortices (also called eddies) come under a large variety of sizes, from Modelling of Oceanic Vortices book few kilometers up to km in diameter. Vertically, their extent can also range from a few tens of meters up to (nearly) the whole ocean depth. They can be intensified near the surface, near the thermocline, or near the bottom.

Some of the longest living vortices are created by the Agulhas Current, which can take years to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

But what is clear is that there are eddies just about everywhere in the ocean that span quite a range of strengths, sizes, and lifetimes. Notable Features. Orange shows rotation opposite the direction of the rotation of Earth. Gigantic Ocean Vortices Seen From Space Could Change Climate Models.

Enormous ocean eddies are measured using satellites (height map, top layer) and submersibles (vorticity map, bottom layers). Wingtip vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift. One wingtip vortex trails from the tip of each wing. Wingtip vortices are sometimes named trailing or lift-induced vortices because they also occur at points other than at the wing tips.

Indeed, vorticity is trailed at any point on the wing where the lift varies span-wise (a fact described and. Abstract Observations show that radii of oceanic eddies often exceed the Rossby radius of deformation, whereas theoretical studies suggest that such vortices should be unstable.
