Internal hydraulic jumps with upstream shear
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
Internal hydraulic jumps in flows with upstream shear are investigated numerically and theoretically. The role of upstream shear has not previously been thoroughly investigated, although it is important in many oceanographic ...
Physical controls on copepod aggregations in the Gulf of Maine
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
This thesis explores the role that the circulation in the Gulf of Maine (GOM) plays in determining the distribution of dense aggregations of copepods. These aggregations are an important part of the marine ecosystem, ...
Instabilities of an eastern boundary current with and without Large-scale Flow Influence
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
Eastern oceanic boundary currents are subject to hydrodynamic instability, generate small scale features that are visible in satellite images and may radiate westward into the interior, where they can be modified by the ...
