Book Description :

The stratified ocean mixes episodically in small patches where energy is dissipated and density smoothed over scales of centimeters. The net effect of these countless events effects the shape of the ocean's thermocline, how heat is transported from the sea surface to the interior, and how dense bottom water is lifted into the global overturning circulation. This book explores the primary factors affecting mixing, beginning with the thermodynamics of seawater, how they vary in the ocean and how they depend on the physical properties of seawater. Turbulence and double diffusion are then discussed, which determines how mixing evolves and the different impacts it has on velocity, temperature, and salinity. It reviews insights from both laboratory studies and numerical modelling, emphasising the assumptions and limitations of these methods. This is an excellent reference for researchers and graduate students working to advance our understanding of mixing, including oceanographers, atmospheric scientists and limnologists.

Book Description :

Diapycnal mixing in the ocean interior is driven by a wide range of processes, each with distinct governing physics and unique global geography. Here we review the primary processes responsible for turbulent mixing in the ocean interior, with an emphasis on active work from the past decade. We conclude with a discussion of global patterns of mixing and their importance for regional and large-scale modeling accuracy.

Mixing Convection and Advection in the Upper Ocean

Mixing  Convection  and Advection in the Upper Ocean Book
Author : Benoit Cushman-Roisin
Publisher : Unknown
Release : 1980
ISBN : 0987650XXX
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

Convection, mixing and advection in the upper ocean may be thought of as the motion of two interacting fluids of different properties: the sinking fluid parcels generated near the surface and transmitting surface information downward, and the compensating rising return flow. A general theory based on this concept is developed and applied to various cases, including deepening of the wind-mixed layer, penetrative convection due to surface cooling, and upper ocean frontogenesis due to horizontal advection. Although the applications focus on the upper ocean, the theory also applies to the lower atmosphere. Equations of the general theory are written for two interactnig Boussinesq fluids in a rotating frame. Interaction terms are parameterized in order to apply the theory to geophysical situations. Considerable simplification is obtained by assuming that the response time of turbulence is much less than the time scale of evolution of the overall system. The study of deepening of the wind-mixed layer and of penetrative convection due to surface cooling are straightforward applications of the general theory. The analytical treatment of the equations is simplified using the observations that the mixed layer is quasi-homogeneous in its physical properties and that the thermocline is a thin layer of large gradients. The solution is analytical and simple.

Book Description :

The present knowledge of oceanic mixing is summarized. Two processes, 'advection' and 'diffusion, ' which contribute substantially to oceanic mixing and their interaction are recognized in the mechanism of mixing. Environmental features of the sea in relation to advective and diffusive processes are also described.

Book Description :

Ocean Mixing: Drivers, Mechanisms and Impacts contains a broad perspective on the causes of ocean mixing, with a perspective on the implications, in terms of governing ocean circulation, climate, biogeochemistry and the marine ecosystem. Included in this edited volume are key future questions relating to ocean mixing, and emerging ideas/activities to address them, including innovative technology developments and advances in methodology. Ocean Mixing is a key reference for those entering the field, and for those seeking a comprehensive overview of how the key current issues are being addressed, and the priorities for future research. It will be used by those seeking specific information on sub-topics (with comprehensive referencing enabling more detailed follow-ups), as well as those seeking a broad synopsis of current understanding. It will be useful ammunition for those seeking funding for specific future research campaigns, by being an authoritative source concerning key scientific goals in the short, medium and long terms. It will contain bespoke and informative graphics that can be used in teaching to convey complex concepts and phenomena in easily-accessible ways. Presents a coherent overview of state-of-the-art research concerning ocean mixing Provides an in-depth discussion of how ocean mixing impacts all scales of the planetary system Includes elucidation of the grand challenges in ocean mixing, and how they might be addressed

Book Description :

To enhance collaboration between researchers who model upper ocean biological/physical processes, a workshop was held at WHOI on June 7-12, 1993. The workshop was part of our on-going URIP project entitled "Modeling Biological-Physical Interactions: A Population Biological Approach" sponsored by ONR (Grant N00014-92-J-1527). The two principal goals of the workshop were to: (1) identify critical Problems related to mixed-layer biological-physical models, and (2) develop approaches for solving these problems. The workshop was organized into two parts to address these goals. The first part, held over the first day and a half, included three overview presentations given in plenary followed by working groups, organized along disciplinary lines, to identify critical issues. The second part of the workshop consisted of working groups, organized across disciplines, using bands-on" modeling to address critical aspects of coupled biological-physical models. Several coupled models were presented and/or developed at the workshop addressing specific aspects of both the biological and physical dynamics. These aspects included the different mixed-layer formulations, a structured grazer population model, and an allometric food-web model including microbial-loop dynamics.

Book Description :

The central theme of the 1999 GFD Program was the stirring, transport, reaction and mixing of passive and active tracers in turbulent, stratified, rotating fluids. The problem of mixing in fluids has applications in areas ranging from oceanography to engineering and astrophysics. In geophysical settings, mixing spans and unites a broad range of scales -- from micrometers to megameters. The mixing of passive tracers is of fundamental importance in environmental and industrial problems, such as pollution, and in determining the large-scale heat and salt balance of the worlds oceans. The transport of active tracers, on the other hand, such as vorticity, plays a key role in the turbulence that occurs in most geophysical and astrophysical fluids. William R. Young (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) gave a series of principal lectures, the notes of which as taken by the fellows, appear in this volume. Reports of the projects of the student fellows makes up the second half of this volume.
