Cross-stream mixing and Lagrangian transport caused by chaotic advection within a baroclinic (21⁄2 layer) meandering jet are investigated. The quasi-steady meanders arise as a result of evolution from an initial smallamplitude instability. The investigation keys on the proposition, made in earlier work, that the cross-jet mixing and transport resulting from the meandering motions are maximized at a subsurface level. It is found that the results depend largely on the size of the shear between… CONTINUE READING
