Abstract:

LONGTERM GOALS. My longterm goals are understanding the processes responsible for stirring and mixing in the ocean in order to better parameterize their impacts on larger scales. OBJECTIVES. To obtain a global assessment of mesoscale water-mass variability lengthscales and diffusivities, as well as density ratio statistics from the ARGO profiling float data set.
