Simulation of Lagrangian Drifters in the Labrador Sea

Pagination or Media Count:
The long-term objective for this research is to use our improved knowledge of the turbulent kinetic energy TKE, Reynolds stress, and scalar flux budgets to develop and test parameterizations of mixed layer dynamics and deep penetrative convection and overturning for inclusion in basin-scale oceanic general circulation models. A principal technical objective is to simulate and understand the behavior of Lagrangian drifters and floats in the presence of deep convection in the Labrador Sea. The corollary scientific objective for the Labrador Sea Deep- Convection ARI is to understand the production, transport and dissipation of TKE and scalar variances potential temperature and salinity and the production and transport of covariances Reynolds stresses, heat and salt fluxes from drifter sensor systems.
