  • Time series measurements of temperature at 15 depths and profiles of temperature-gradient microstructure were obtained during a period with strong wind forcing and subsequent calm in Mono Lake, California. The wind forcing increased the amplitude of basin-scale internal waves and energy at all wave frequencies relative to the calm period. Rates of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy, ∈, were high (∈ > 10−6 m2 s−3) at the top of the pycnocline at both an inshore and an offshore site on a day… CONTINUE READING
