Lateral intrusions spend most their lifetime in a quasi-steady, finite-amplitude state, in which the vertical scale and salinity amplitude do not change. I wish to understand the finite-amplitude dynamics of lateral intrusions well enough to be able to predict their scale and intensity on the basis of large scale property gradients, and therefore to be able to parameterize the lateral fluxes of heat, salt, and momentum due to lateral intrusive mixing. The long-term of this project is to make predictions of lateral salt, heat, and angular momentum transports in FINITE-AMPLITUDE intrusive mixing.
