Physics of diurnal warm layers : turbulence, internal waves, and lateral mixing
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
The daily heating of the ocean by the sun can create a stably stratified near-surface layer when the winds are slight and solar insolation is strong. This type of shallow stable layer is called a Diurnal Warm Layer (DWL). ...
Submesoscale turbulence in the upper ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
Submesoscale flows, current systems 1-100 km in horizontal extent, are increasingly coming into focus as an important component of upper-ocean dynamics. A range of processes have been proposed to energize submesoscale ...
