Question description

Week 5: Lab

A bathymetric contour map of the New York Bight will be used to generate a bathymetric profile that illustrates the continental shelf, slope, and rise, and the abyssal deep.

Satellite radar images revealing internal waves on the New York Bight will be used to test the idea that internal waves are caused by tidal forces pushing water into a collision with the continental slope.

For this lab, download these instructions and this article from the oceanographic literature discussing internal waves, for use with the lab.

Be sure to look at all the images in this article, to get a good sense of how internal waves in the waters of the continental shelf appear on the ocean surface, as seen by a radar instrument in satellite orbit.

The following images will help you in your analysis and in preparing your report of the results:

  • Bitmap image of Figure 3 from the above article, showing internal waves - Internal waves Fig 3.bmp
  • New York Bight bathymetry contour map - New York Bight bathymetry.jpg

Submit your lab report as an MS Word document, with images included as needed (to gain skill in image manipulation), through the Week 5: Labassignment link above.

Could someone please help me with my Lab 5 Continental Shelf waves?
