Record #176019:

Some aspects of the work of V.W. Ekman / Alastair D. Jenkins, John A.T. Bye.

Title: Some aspects of the work of V.W. Ekman / Alastair D. Jenkins, John A.T. Bye.
Author(s): Jenkins, Alastair D.
Bye, John A. T.
Date: 2006.
In: Polar Record. (2006.), Vol. 42(220) (2006)
Abstract: Summarises Ekman's contribution to physical oceanography and reviews continuing impact of his work. Notes key concepts: Ekman spiral (helical rotation of velocity vector, in atmospheric and oceanic boundary layers) and resultant Ekman pumping (vertical motions in water column associated with divergence of flow in surface layer in presence of rotational wind-stress field).
Notes:

Polar Record. Vol. 42(220) :15-22 (2006).
