Part IV — Waves and Currents
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 64)

Abstract

The propagation of non-breaking waves on large-scale currents over a gently sloping sea bed is considered. Effects of vorticity and dissipation are included. The three-dimensional case is studied only for irrotational flow.
