Hamiltonian formalism and the Garrett-Munk spectrum of internal waves in the ocean

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A natural Hamiltonian formulation for long internal waves was established. The resulting formulation was used within the wave turbulence formalism to determine the stationary energy spectrum corresponding to a direct cascade of energy from the long to the short waves.
