The second is a fast-moving atmospheric system known as a "convectively coupled Kelvin wave
" that's affected by the earth's rotation.
In addition, it is interesting to find that, in Figures 8(a), (b), (c), (d), the specular ranges significantly moves towards the scattered angles which are less than the specular angles, because the higher roughness can arise from the Kelvin wave
elevation when ship speed increases, which seriously affects the slope distribution of surface.
[F.sub.h] V/[square root of (gh)] > 6 When this threshold is exceeded, the classical, linear Kelvin wave
system is modified and specific, non-linear components of wakes frequently exist [31,32].
4.9a) triggered a downwelling equatorial oceanic Kelvin wave
that led to warming of the upper ocean by late December (Fig.
At the same time, the drop-off in the winds generates a fast-moving Kelvin wave
that crosses the Pacific in 1 to 2 months.
The cloud layer at [equivalent] 12-16 km appears to be associated with a 10-day Kelvin wave
that was identified by spectral analysis of radiosonde data at Koror, Republic of Palau (7[degrees]N, 134[degrees]E), and Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia (7[degrees]N, 152[degrees]E).
4.6b) in response to the combination of the evolving El Nino and the downwelling phase of a strong equatorial oceanic Kelvin wave
(section 4c) that was initiated by a westerly wind burst.
A sudden relaxation of the trades in the central equatorial Pacific would then allow this warm water to "slosh back" toward the east in the form of an eastward-propagating equatorial Kelvin wave
Seasonal averages during 2014 highlighted the El Nino-like signatures in this ENSO-neutral year (see section 4b), with the excitation of a downwelling Kelvin wave
in the first quarter of the year associated with westerly winds bursts over the western equatorial Pacific (Fig.
Kiladis, 2002: Observations of a convectively coupled Kelvin wave
in the eastern Pacific ITCZ.
Yanai at Tokyo University and Wallace at the University of Washington and their colleagues discovered mixed Rossby-gravity waves (Yanai and Maruyama 1966; Maruyama 1967) and Kelvin waves
(Wallace and Kousky 1968) in the stratosphere that were predicted by Matsuno's theory.
, warm equatorial swells that signal El Nino, are already shoring up on Peru's coast, Avalos said.
