Abstract Measurements by the Multi-Scale Profiler (MSP) at seven stations spanning the Straits of Florida characterize levels and patterns of internal wave activity and mixing in this vertically sheared environment. Contrasting properties suggest five mixing regimes. The largest and most vast is the interior regime, where the background flow has an inverse Richardson number (Ri−1) ranging up to 0.55, shear is dominated by fluctuations that are 1–4 times stronger than in the open ocean, and… CONTINUE READING
