Abstract:

Evidence of turbulence and large-scale vertical motion is presented together with a condensed review of vertical mixing processes and stability in the sea. Physical models of large-scale vertical motion and descriptions of areas, times, and conditions under which it can be expected are discussed. Comments are given concerning the implication of large-scale vertical motions on the safety of submarines.
