Ocean Mixing

This book examines how large-scale processes drive centimetre-scale mixing throughout the stratified ocean. It explores the primary factors affecting mixing and turbulence, and reviews insights from laboratory studies and numerical modelling. It is an excellent reference for researchers and graduate students in oceanography and related fields.

This volume contains the proceedings of the 19th International Liège Colloquium on Ocean Hydrodynamics, the programme of which focused on the relationships between small-scale mixing and large-scale features, transports and processes. The presentation of papers on various methods of parameterization of small-scale turbulent mixing for numerical ocean models was particularly encouraged and this resulted in more than a third of the papers presented at the Colloquium dealing in one way or another with the parameterization problems; many of these

Ocean Mixing: Drivers, Mechanisms and Impacts contains a broad perspective on the causes of ocean mixing, with a perspective on the implications, in terms of governing ocean circulation, climate, biogeochemistry and the marine ecosystem. Included in this edited volume are key future questions relating to ocean mixing, and emerging ideas/activities to address them, including innovative technology developments and advances in methodology. Ocean Mixing is a key reference for those entering the field, and for those seeking a comprehensive overview

Diapycnal mixing in the ocean interior is driven by a wide range of processes, each with distinct governing physics and unique global geography. Here we review the primary processes responsible for turbulent mixing in the ocean interior, with an emphasis on active work from the past decade. We conclude with a discussion of global patterns of mixing and their importance for regional and large-scale modeling accuracy.

Convection, mixing and advection in the upper ocean may be thought of as the motion of two interacting fluids of different properties: the sinking fluid parcels generated near the surface and transmitting surface information downward, and the compensating rising return flow. A general theory based on this concept is developed and applied to various cases, including deepening of the wind-mixed layer, penetrative convection due to surface cooling, and upper ocean frontogenesis due to horizontal advection. Although the applications focus on

To enhance collaboration between researchers who model upper ocean biological/physical processes, a workshop was held at WHOI on June 7-12, 1993. The workshop was part of our on-going URIP project entitled "Modeling Biological-Physical Interactions: A Population Biological Approach" sponsored by ONR (Grant N00014-92-J-1527). The two principal goals of the workshop were to: (1) identify critical Problems related to mixed-layer biological-physical models, and (2) develop approaches for solving these problems. The workshop was organized into two parts to address these goals.
