Wind-evaporation feedback, angular momentum conservation, and the abrupt onset of monsoons
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
This thesis examines the mechanisms responsible for the abrupt onset of monsoon circulations, focusing on the role played by wind-evaporation feedback and its interaction with angular momentum conserving flow. The first ...
Diapycnal mixing transience and the meridional overturning circulation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
Diapycnal mixing of ocean waters is crucial to the dynamics and associated heat transport of the meridional overturning circulation, yet uncertainty exists regarding the distribution and physical mechanisms of this mixing. ...
