The potential for differential turbulent transport of oceanic temperature (T) and salinity (S) is explored using three-dimensional direct numerical simulations of decaying stratified turbulence. The simulations employ a realistic molecular diffusion coefficient for T, and one for a " salt " scalar S that is 10 times smaller. Initially, a uniformly… CONTINUE READING
