The Influence of Topography on the Stability of the Norwegian Atlantic Current off Northern Norway
Journal of Physical Oceanography
The steep continental slope off the Lofoten-Vesterålen islands of northern Norway appears to be the source of the most intense mesoscale eddy field in all of the Nordic Seas. Here we use linearized two-layer shallow-water equations to study the stability of the Norwegian Atlantic Current in this region. The study extends previous works that used linearized quasigeostrophic vertical mode equations to examine the effects of bottom topography on baroclinic instability here. We find evidence ofdoi:10.1175/jpo-d-17-0235.1 fatcat:bp7ch72hfjb5dk237k73xl7quq
