An Example of an Inertial Motion

This project is described in Chapter 10, pages 179 - 180 of George Mellor's book "An Introduction to Physical Oceanography." The main goal of the project is to plot the particle paths of typical fluid particles in the motion induced by the velocity field on page 179 (see Figure 10-1). Also, describe the changes you will encounter in Figure 10-1 if the function eta = sin(k x - c t) for typical values of k and c.
