Abstract

[The free oscillations of theWorld Ocean on the rotating Earth consist of gravity and vorticity modes, primarily governed by the gravity of the Earth and by the latitude dependent Coriolis force, respectively. A total of 284 free oscillations is found in the period range of 7.7 h to 165 h. Of these, 169 oscillations are classified as physically relevant, while the remaining 115 are considered to be spurious modes. These spurious modes are characterized by very large amplitudes in both the horizontal mass transport and the sea surface elevation. They are concentrated on small areas and located mainly in bays and gulfs. Although resonances do exist in these regions, they cannot be resolved with this model. In the following, only the physically meaningful modes are considered.]
