Sally J. Warner and Parker MacCready The dynamics of pressure and form drag on a sloping headland: Internal waves versus eddies Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans 119

Version of Record online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013JC009757

Key Points

  • Tides generate internal waves and eddies as they flow past sloping topography
  • Bottom pressure is divided into parts that do and do not contribute to form drag
  • Internal waves and eddies remove similar amounts of energy from tidal currents
