  1. Deriving the SWM Lecture 1: Conservation of Potential Vorticity

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the conservation equation for potential vorticity in the shallow water model.

  2. Deriving the SWM Lecture 2: Stream Functions for Velocity Fields

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the formulation of the stream function for the velocity field of the shallow water equation.  his is the second in a series of short lectures on deriving the shallow water model, given by Chris Jones in 2013. 

  3. Deriving the SWM Lecture 3: Barotropic Vorticity Equations

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the barotropic vorticity equations for the shallow water model.  This is background lecture 2.1C in the Mathematics of Climate Modelling course.

  4. Powerpoint Intro to Potential Analysis

    16 Sep 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Darren Anthony Marotta

    A technique to detect the number of states in a geophysical system attained from recorded time series.  Potential Analysis estimates the degree of a polynomial, which determines the number of states in the time series.  Changes in the number of states represent bifurcations of the system.
