Boundary layer dynamics and deep ocean mixing in Mid-Atlantic Ridge canyons
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
Physical oceanographers have known for several decades the total amount of abyssal mixing and upwelling required to balance the deep-water formation, but are still working to understand the mechanisms and locations-how and ...
Mechanisms of turbulent mixing in the Continental Shelf bottom boundary layer
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
The bottom boundary layer is an important dynamical region of shallow water flows. In this thesis, the problem of turbulent mixing in the coastal bottom boundary layer is investigated with a unique set of field measurements ...
