This paper describes an experimental study, conducted in the I.M.S.T. air–sea interaction tunnel, of waves excited on a water surface by a periodic train of vortices in the air flow above. The water surface, under some conditions, shows a rapidly developing resonant response, while in the non-resonant case waves propagate both upstream and downstre...

The free surface flow past a semi-infinite horizontal plate in a finite-depth fluid is considered. It is assumed that the fluid is incompressible and inviscid and that the flow approaches a uniform shear flow downstream. Exact relations are derived using conservation of mass and momentum for the case where the downstream free surface is flat. The c...

The special class of periodic travelling waves which is known as roll waves is investigated for nonhomogeneous hyperbolic equations of gas dynamics type. In this Note these equations are applied to shallow water flows in inclined open channels, but the results obtained are more general and far-reaching. The necessary conditions for the existence of...

Most previous investigations on tide-induced watertable fluctuations in coastal aquifers have been based on one- dimensional models that describe the processes in the cross- shore direction alone, assuming negligible along-shore variability. A recent study proposed a two-dimensional approximation for tide-induced watertable fluctuations that took i...
