Dispersive – Dissipative Eddy Parameterization in a Barotropic Model

  title={Dispersive – Dissipative Eddy Parameterization in a Barotropic Model},
  author={Balasubramanya T. Nadiga},
Recently a new class of coarse-grained equations, known as a models, have been proposed for the mean motion of an ideal incompressible fluid. The use of one such model to represent the time-mean component of a turbulent b-plane circulation characterized by potential vorticity mixing is considered. In particular, the focus is on the wind-driven circulation in a shallow ocean basin, a problem well studied as a prototype of more realistic ocean dynamics. The authors demonstrate the ability of an a… CONTINUE READING
