Coriolis Forces in Hopkins and Simmons Vorticity Equation
In the thread vector operations in Hopkins and Simmons, I compute the components of the curl as:
In my post Coriolis forces in Hopkins and Simmons I compute the coriolis force as:
And the partial derivatives are given by:
I’ll derive the rest of this later but this doesn’t seem to be the form of the prognostic equation used by Hopkins and Simmons.
Divergence Free Flow
In the post Vector Operations in Hopkins and Simmons I derived the divergence operator as follows:
If the divergence of the velocity equals zero then:
Which implies:
