al. 1999 ; Iskandar et al. 2005 , 2006 ). 2) Theory and modeling Previous studies suggest that a possible explanation for the peak responses at both the 180- ( Jensen 1993 ; Han et al. 1999 ) and 90-day ( Han et al. 2001 ; Han 2005 ) periods is the establishment of basin resonance in the equatorial IO. Cane and Moore (1981) and Gent (1981) constructed low-frequency equatorial resonance modes in an idealized basin that consist of eastward-propagating Kelvin and westward-propagating, long

planetary waves mathematically is to decompose the midlatitude meridional wind field into its spectral components. Waves are characterized by their amplitude (north–south wind speed) and phase speed (velocity of west–east propagation) ( Rossby 1940 ; Charney and Eliassen 1949 ; Haurwitz 1940a ; Haurwitz 1940b ) and can interact with each other as well as with the background flow ( Frederiksen and Webster 1988 ). They can be subject to reflection, diffraction, dispersion, and resonance ( Hoskins and

the internal wave fields are in phase and the conversion is enhanced when beams emitted from the opposing ridges superpose after one surface reflection during semidiurnal tides. The role of the beams in the resonance suggests that higher vertical modes may be important. Vlasenko et al. (2010) show with analytical 2D and numerical 3D simulations that the resonant interaction between the west and the east ridges enhances the generation of second-mode waves by the west ridge. Fig . 1.

1. Introduction Models and, to some extent, observations show that isolated islands and seamounts can be the site of resonant trapped wave responses at subinertial frequencies (e.g., Longuet-Higgins 1969 ; Hogg 1980 ; Brink 1989 ; Brink 1999 ). The continental shelf literature (e.g., Dale and Sherwin 1996 ) makes it natural to ask whether there might also be resonances, or leaky resonances, at superinertial frequencies [e.g., Chambers (1965) ; Longuet-Higgins (1967) for very idealized

84 . The general understanding of the instability of a zonally varying flow without a restriction of ∂/∂ y = 0 on a disturbance has yet to be established. The instability of a parallel flow can be most succinctly interpreted in terms of wave resonance ( Bretherton 1966 ; Baines and Mitsudera 1994 ; and others). By wave resonance we mean that instability results from mutual reinforcement of two constituent wave components with the same zonal wavelength that are stationary relative to one another

excited and the perturbation streamfunction grows linearly in time. The existence of a linear resonance has been found before in analytical studies of the Eady model where the upper rigid lid was removed ( Thorncroft and Hoskins 1990 ; Chang 1992 ; Davies and Bishop 1994 ; Bishop and Heifetz 2000 ) but no serious attempt has been made so far to include the impact of the linear resonance in an analytical approach to the SV. To fill the gap we will concentrate on the role of the CMs in the SV
