Abstract:

We are focused on understanding small-scale processes that influence the oceans thermodynamic and dynamic properties on the sub-mesoscale scales less than 10 km. This includes the turbulent evolution of cold wakes caused by typhoons, and the subsequent mixing processes the restore the upper ocean stratification after a storm event.
