Assignment 7: Aloha! Waves

Given the types of waves we have studied, you can either:

  1. Study a wavelike process in the ECCO dataset. For example, use the LAS server to make Hovmuller diagrams (xt surfaces) of different variables. Find a wave, check its dispersion relation.
  2. Write a review paper of related observational papers on waves.
  3. Extend the analysis we did in class theoretically, by pure analysis or writing/using a model for a wave process.

There will be more of this in class, and this paper is probably more flexible than many.
