The dynamical prediction of wind tides on Lake Erie by George W Platzmann( Book )

8 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objects of the American Meteorological Society are "the development and dissemination of knowledge of meteorology in all its phases and applications, and the advancement of its professional ideals." The organization of the Society took place in affiliation with the American Association for the Advancement of Science at Saint Louis, Missouri, December 29, 1919, and its incorporation, at Washington, D. C., January 21, 1920. The work of the Society is carried on by the Bulletin, the Journal, and Meteorological Monographs, by papers and discussions at meetings of the Society, through the offices of the Secretary and the Executive Secretary, and by correspondence. All of the Americas are represented in the membership of the Society as well as many foreign countries

Spectra of Lake Erie water levels by George W Platzman( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variance and covariance spectra of Lake Erie hourly scaled water levels are analyzed with resolution 0.1 cycles per day (in some instances 0.05 cpd) in the frequency range 0 to 8 cpd for thirteen stations in the six-month summer period April through September 1958, and for some of these stations in the six-month winter period October 1958 through March 1959. The main contribution to variance spectra at most stations is the range 0 to 1 cpd. Inherent noise levels are between 10,000 and .001 sq. ft./cycles per day; scaling noise is at most about .0001 sq. ft./cycles per day. The most conspicuous features of summer variance spectra are strong and consistent peaks near 1.7 cpd (14.1 hr), 2.6 cpd (9.2 hr), 4.0 cpd (6.0 hr), and 5.8 cpd (4.1 hr), which correspond to the first four modes of longitudinal free oscillation of the Lake. A diurnal peak appears consistently in analysis with 0.1 cpd resolution; with 0.05 cpd resolution a distinct semi-diurnal peak emerges at 1.95 cpd (12.3 hr). Covariance spectra give phases consistent with the hypothesis that the fundamental mode of oscillation is an amphidromic Kelvin-type wave, in which there is counterclockwise rotation of the phase of high water.

A procedure for operational prediction of wind set-up on Lake Erie by George W Platzman( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The free oscillations of Lake Erie by George W Platzman( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The longitudinal free oscillations of Lake Erie are investigated theoretically by numerical integration of the channel equations, and observationally by analysis of water-level covariance spectra. Good agreement is obtained between computed and observed periods of the first four modes, as well as between computed and observed amplitude. Particular attention is given to influence of the earth's rotation and to the effect of friction. The general conclusions are that the earth's rotation transforms the lowest longitudinal mode into an amphidromic wave with countererclockwise rotation of cotidal lines, but does not significantly affect the period of any mode.
