  • Abstract A series of large eddy simulations is used to assess the transport properties of multi-scale ocean flows. In particular, we compare scale-dependent measures of Lagrangian relative dispersion and the evolution of passive tracer releases in models containing only submesoscale mixed layer instabilities and those containing mixed layer instabilities modified by deeper, baroclinic mesoscale disturbances. Visualization through 3D finite-time Lyapunov exponents and spectral analysis show that… CONTINUE READING
