  • Comment on invalid JWKB unstable solutions of combined inertial­-Rossby waves 

    McKenzie, J. F. (Annales Geophysicaewww.ann-geophys.net/30/571/2012/, 2012)
  • The group velocity and radiation pattern of Rossby waves 

    McKenzie, J. F. (Taylor & Francishttp://dx.doi.org/10.1080/03091929.2014.896459, 2014-05-06)
    The propagation properties of mid-latitude Rossby waves are well known and are usually revealed in terms of the dispersion equation either in its diagnostic or wave normal forms, both of which show that phase propagation ...
  • Interaction between high- and low-frequency waves 

    McKenzie, J. F. (Springer Verlaghttp://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10665-012-9613-6, 2013)
    We outline models for the interaction between high- and low-frequency waves that arise in plasma physics and atmosphere/ocean dynamics. The original ideas are embodied in the Zakharov equations, which describe the interaction ...
  • Nonlinear, stationary electrostatic ion cyclotron waves : exact solutions for solitons, periodic waves, and wedge shaped waveforms 

    Rajah, Surversperi Suryakumari; Doyle, T. B.; McKenzie, J. F. (American Institute of Physicshttp://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4769031, 2012-11-30)
    The theory of fully nonlinear stationary electrostatic ion cyclotron waves is further developed. The existence of two fundamental constants of motion; namely, momentum flux density parallel to the background magnetic field ...
  • Rossby wave patterns in zonal and meridional winds 

    Duba, C. T.; Doyle, T. B.; McKenzie, J. F. (Taylor & Francishttp://dx.doi.org/10.1080/03091929.2013.867604, 2014-03-31)
    The propagation properties of Rossby waves in zonal and meridional winds are analyzed using the local dispersion relation in its wave number form, the geometry of which plays a crucial role in illuminating radiation patterns ...
  • Rossby waves in an azimuthal wind 

    McKenzie, J. F.; Webb, G. M. (Taylor and Francishttp://dx.doi.org/10.1080/03091929.2014.986473, 2014-11-24)
    Rossby waves in an azimuthal wind are analyzed using an eigen-function expansion. Solutions of the wave equation for the stream-function ψ for Rossby waves are obtained in which ψ depends on (r,φ,t) where r is the cylindrical ...
