Wave-vortex decomposition of one-dimensional ship-track data

We present a simple two-step method by which one-dimensional spectra of horizontal velocity and buoyancy measured along a ship track can be decomposed into a wave component consisting of inertia-gravity waves and a vortex component consisting of a horizontal flow in geostrophic balance. The method r...
