Abyssal mixing from bottom boundary effects in Mid-Atlantic Ridge flank canyons
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
This paper begins to explore a previously neglected mechanism for abyssal ocean mixing using bottom boundary layer dynamics. Abyssal mixing and the associated upward buoyancy fluxes are necessary to balance the sinking of ...
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 ...
