Abstract : We are focused on understanding small-scale processes that influence the ocean s thermodynamic and dynamic properties on the sub-mesoscale (scales less than 10 km). This includes the enhanced internal waves generation and turbulent processes occurring in the Luzon Passage at the Lan-Yu and Heng-Chun ridges. The waters of the Luzon Passage are among the most energetic environments in the global ocean. Tidal currents as large as 0.8 m/s and strong stratification over the steep ridge… CONTINUE READING
