Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the physics of flows generated by currents passing over small topographic features, to quantify, and parameterize if possible, the mixing these flows produce and to parameterize the effects of form drag on topographic roughness at scales too small to be resolved by numerical models of ocean circulation.
