Free oscillations of an atmosphere in which temperature increases linearly with height
by C. L Pekeris
(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In an atmosphere where the temperature increases linearly with height at a constant rate, the acoustic propagation properties are radically different from those hitherto encountered in the theory of atmospheric tides. The phase velocity no longer approaches a limit with increasing period but increases linearly with the period. The region of maximum energy of the oscillation is shifted to increasingly higher elevations as the period is increased. The bearing of these results on the resonance theory of atmospheric tides is discussed
Effect of quadratic terms in differential equations of atmospheric oscillatons
by C. L Pekeris
(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide It is shown that the neglect of the terms in the differential equations of atmospheric oscillations which are quadratic in the velocities is not justified in the case of free oscillations for heights greater than 100 kilometers. This result is illustrated for two atmospheres of different temperature distributions where it is shown that at about 130 kilometers the neglected quadratic terms become equal to the retained linear terms and that they even exceed the latter at heights greater than 130 kilometers. A method is outlined for including the quadratic terms in the theory of atmospheric oscillations. The bearing of this result on atmospheric tides is discussed
