Question: consider two oceanographic stations aligned in zonal direction west to...

Question details

Consider two oceanographic stations aligned in zonal direction (west to east) and separated by 10 nautical miles, with station A being westward of station B. Average meridional velocity at 500 dbar between the two stations is -0.1 m/s (that is, 10 cm/s southward). What is the geostrophic velocity between the two stations at 200 dbar, if average density between 500 and 200 dbar at station A is 1024.7 kg/m3, and at station B is 1025.3 kg/m3. Assume that 1 dbar = 1 m, and f=10-4 s-1
