The first direct estimate of the rate at which geostrophic turbulence mixes tracers across the Antarctic Circumpolar Current is presented. The estimate is computed from the spreading of a tracer released upstream of Drake Passage as part of the Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the...
Sverdrup balance underlies much of the theory of ocean circulation and provides a potential tool for describing the interior ocean transport from only the wind stress. Using both a model state estimate and an eddy-permitting coupled climate model, this study assesses to what extent and over what...
This work investigates the instability of a two-layer Bickley jet in the context of the rotating shallow water (RSW) model. This provides a general context in which the instability of oceanographic jets with simple stratification can be investigated. The three objectives of this work are as...
A new mechanism of instability leading to development of Langmuir circulations is proposed and studied based on the hypothesis that the turbulence and, correspondingly, the eddy viscosity are reduced in regions of higher than average contaminant concentration. Here, bubbles are considered as the...
Variations of the subarctic front (SAF), which is extracted as a strong sea surface temperature (SST) gradient in the longitudinal band of 146°–152°E, were investigated over 30 winters (January–March) from 1982 to 2011, using high-spatial-resolution satellite-derived SST dataset and hydrographic...
The dynamics associated with lateral circulation in a tidally driven estuarine channel is analyzed on the basis of streamwise vorticity. Without rotational effects, differential advection and diffusive boundary mixing produce two counterrotating vortices (in the cross-channel section) whose...
