  • Strong interaction between two co-rotating vortices in rotating and stratified flows. 

    Bambrey, Ross R. (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    In this study we investigate the interactions between two co-rotating vortices. These vortices are subject to rapid rotation and stable stratification such as are found in planetary atmospheres and oceans. By conducting ...
  • Vortex merger in surface quasi-geostrophy 

    Carton, Xavier; Ciani, Daniele; Verron, Jacques; Reinaud, Jean Noel; Sokolovskiy, Mikhail (2016) - Journal article
    The merger of two identical surface temperature vortices is studied in the surface quasi- geostrophic model. The motivation for this study is the observation of the merger of sub- mesoscale vortices in the ocean. Firstly, ...
  • 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 ...
