Measurements with a depth-cycling towed body and microstructures over and near East Flower Garden Bank were made as part of NRLs Mixing Over Rough Topography MORT program, funded by ONR. Our major result was observing the evolution of mode-2 hydraulic control over a ridge on the north slope of the bank. Because ridges like this are common on continental shelves, these observations point to the need to include mixing driven by hydraulic controls over many bottom irregularities.
