    • The interaction of two surface vortices near a topographic slope in a stratified ocean 

      de Marez, Charly; Carton, Xavier; Morvan, Mathieu; Reinaud, Jean Noel (2017-12) - Journal article
      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 ...
    • Vortex merger near a topographic slope in a homogeneous rotating fluid 

      Carton, Xavier; Morvan, Mathieu; Reinaud, Jean Noel; Sokolovskiy, Mikhail; L'Hégaret, Pierre; Vic, Clément (2017-10-01) - Journal article
      The effect of a bottom slope on the merger of two identical Rankine vortices is investigated in a two dimensional, quasi-geostrophic, incompressible fluid. When two cyclones initially lie parallel to the slope, and more ...
