ABSTRACT
The association of topographic waves with wind action has been documented in several natural lakes
throughout the world. However, the influence of the wind's spatial variability (wind stress curl) on the
frequency of topographic waves has only been partially investigated. Here the role of wind stress curl on the
frequency of topographic waves in an idealized elliptic paraboloid basin has been studied both analytically
and numerically. It is shown that the analytical solution is the sum of an elliptic rotation determined by the
