Effects of seamounts on tidal dissipation
This paper presents a numerical study of the effects of isolated seamounts and randomly distributed seamounts on internal tidal dissipation in the ocean. One of the main conclusions is that wave interference can appreciably decrease the conversion rates for three-dimensional, supercritical topography in a uniform stratification. The results contribute to our understanding of deep ocean dissipation which is of relevance to global ocean circulation and climate.
