[1] The response over a submarine canyon to a several day upwelling event can be separated into three phases: an initial transient response; a later, much longer, “steady” advection‐driven response; and a final relaxation phase. For the advection‐driven phase over realistically steep, deep, and narrow canyons with near‐uniform flow and stratification at rim depth, we have derived scale estimates for four key quantities. Observations from 5 real‐world canyon studies and 3 laboratory studies are… CONTINUE READING
