In a laboratory study, we quantified the temporal energy flux associated with the degeneration of basin-scale internal waves in closed basins. The system is two-layer stratified and subjected to a single forcing event creating available potential energy at time zero. A downscale energy transfer was observed from the wind-forced basin-scale motions to the turbulent motions, where energy was lost due to high-frequency internal wave breaking along sloping topography. Under moderate forcing… Expand
