Jet-Topography Interactions Affect Energy Pathways to the Deep Southern Ocean

Barthel, Alice; Hogg, Andrew; Waterman, Stephanie; Keating, Shane


In the Southern Ocean, strong eastward ocean jets interact with large topographic features, generating eddies that feed back onto the mean flow. Deep-reaching eddies interact with topography, where turbulent dissipation and generation of internal lee waves play an important role in the ocean's energy budget. However, eddy effects in the deep ocean are difficult to observe and poorly characterized. This study investigates the energy contained in eddies at depth, when an ocean jet encounters...[Show more]
