Effect of critical latitude and seasonal stratification on tidal current profiles along Ronne Ice Front, Antarctica Makinson, Keith; Schröder, Michael; Østerhus, Svein (American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-30)The ice front region of Ronne Ice Shelf lies near the critical latitude of the semidiurnal M2 tide, the principal tidal constituent in the southern Weddell Sea. Here the Coriolis frequency almost equals the M2 tidal ...Journal article
