Stalling of near-inertial waves in a cyclone

Authors


Abstract

[1] Observations at the edge of the Loop Current after hurricane Katrina show inertial energy amplified at a depth of approximately 600∼700 m. Ray-analysis using the eddy field obtained from a numerical simulation with data assimilation suggests that the amplification is due to inertial motions stalled in a deep cyclone.
