Convection in a rotating cavity
Many large scale flows in the ocean are driven by an imposed longitudinal density gradient and the resulting buoyancy-driven flow is both influenced by the Earth's rotation and has a low aspect ratio (i.e. the characteristic vertical scale of the motion is small compared to the characteristic horizontal scale of the motion). The essential features of such flows were incorporated into a laboratory model, by differentially heating and cooling the vertical end walls of a low aspect ratio,...[Show more]
