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). ...
Linear and nonlinear stratified spindown over sloping topography
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
In a stratified rotating fluid, frictionally driven circulations couple with the buoyancy field over sloping topography. Analytical and numerical methods are used to quantify the impact of this coupling on the vertical ...
