Abstract:

The long-term goal of this effort is to work in concert with DRI participants to develop scalable, physically based parameterizations for lateral mixing in the stratified ocean on scales of 0.1-10km that can be implemented in larger-scale ocean models. These parameterizations will incorporate the effects of local ambient conditions including latitude, mean stratification and mesoscale flows. Another ultimate goal is to develop a more comprehensive picture of horizontal and vertical mixing processes in the ocean in collaboration with other DRI participants
