Laboratory models of double-diffusive layers and intrusions

Taylor, John Robert

Description

The experiments reported in this work were aimed at understanding aspects of the formation and evolution of double-diffusive layering and intrusions. The role of turbulent entrainment in the evolution of diffusive layering was examined theoretically. It was found that entrainment destabilised a system of diffusive layers, driving a layer's properties towards a state where it overturned with one of its immediate neighbours. However, despite its important role the efficiency...[Show more]
