Abstract
The Kelvin-Helmholtz instability is the inertial destabilization of a parallel shear flow in a density stratified fluid under the influence of gravity. For example, this type of instability manifests itself as surface waves in the ocean when wind blows over the water surface. In this thesis we solve the nonhydrostatic Kelvin-Helmholtz instability problem for a near-bottom jet with a continuous velocity profile in a flat-bottomed non-rotating density-stratified fluid. Of particular note, the nonhydrostatic stability problem modelled here has a high wavenumber cutoff and does not exhibit an ultraviolet catastrophe unlike other inviscid stability calculations that have been previously published.
