Internal waves and turbulence in a stable stratified jet

  title={Internal waves and turbulence in a stable stratified jet},
  author={Hieu T. Pham and Sutanu Sarkar},
Direct numerical simulations are performed to investigate the interaction between a stably stratified jet and internal gravity waves from an adjacent shear layer with mild stratification. Results from two simulations are presented: one with the jet located far from the shear layer (far jet) and the other with the shear layer right on top of the jet (near jet). The near jet problem is motivated by velocity and stratification profiles observed in equatorial undercurrents. In the far case… CONTINUE READING
