DYNAMICS OF A SLOWLY MOVING FRONT IN A SHALLOW WATER BODY.
The movement of fronts occurring upon interaction of water masses differing in density is examined. Some examples are the propagation of light fresh water over the surface of heavier salt water in coastal regions of seas, ...
Spreading of a Viscous Fluid Over a Horizontal Surface.
The three-dimensional spreading of a thin viscous fluid layer over a horizontal surface is examined allowing for the gravitational force and surface tension. Using an asymptotic expansion based on two small parameters ...
The Dynamics of a Small-scale Oceanic Front under the Action of Wind.
An unsteady model of the dynamics of a small-scale front in a two-layer stratified viscous fluid is proposed. An equation describing the evolution of a frontal surface is derived. An analogy is noted between the motion of ...
