Mean flow velocities and mass transport for equatorially-trapped water waves with an underlying current
In this paper we present an analysis of the mean flow velocities, and related mass transport, which are induced by certain equatorially-trapped water waves. In particular, we examine a recently-derived exact and explicit solution to the geophysical governing equations in the β-plane approximation at the equator which incorporates a constant underlying current.
