Abstract:

Our long-term scientific goals are to understand the dynamics and identify mechanisms of small-scale processesi.e., internal tides, inertial waves, nonlinear internal waves NLIWs, and turbulence mixingin the ocean and their interaction with oceanic processes at larger scales. We aim to develop improved parameterizations of mixing for ocean models. For this study, our focus is on the turbulence mixing in Indonesian Seas, the surface mixed layer processes, inertial waves and internal tides, oceanic responses to atmospheric forcing, and effects of oceanic processes on airsea fluxes. The ultimate goal is to improve our understanding of the atmosphereocean coupled system in Indonesian Seas.
