The Mindanao and Halmahera Eddies—Twin Eddies Induced by Nonlinearities

Starting with the simple case of a nonlinear northward (southward) western boundary current (WBC) flowing along a concave solid boundary with a sharp corner on a -plane, it is shown analytically that an anticyclonic (cyclonic) eddy is established to balance the upstream momentum flux. (On an f-plane no eddy is established; similarly, no eddy is established in the linear limit.) The solution is derived by expanding the dependent variables in powers of ε 1/6 for the northward current
