Abstract:

The long term goals of this project are to obtain an understanding of the mechanisms by which tidal energy is used to vertically mix the ocean against the action of gravity. Ultimately better parameterizations of the mixing caused by tides will result, allowing better prediction of coastal dynamics, biogeochemistry and sediment transport and the oceanic general circulation.
