Abstract / Description

A model of a changing tidal regime in an evolving shallow sea such as the ancient North Sea is developed and solved analytically as a generalization of Taylor's problem. Characteristic scales and coefficients are treated as functions of historical time. The z dependency, dissipative and non-linear terms are effectively separated from the governing equations by the use of a Latta expansion. A composite solution is found which takes account of each of these features. A Green's function technique is used to calculate the effects of friction. A sloping bed topography is simulated by a horizontally varying eddy viscosity.
