Product water mass formation by turbulent density currents from a high-order nonhydrostatic spectral element model

Abstract

In light of the pressing need for development of parameterizations of gravity current entrainment in ocean general circulation models, the behavior of turbulent gravity currents in the presence of ambient stratification is studied via numerical simulation, for cases in which equilibrated product water masses are formed. The main objective is to explore how… (More)
