Heat and mass transport in geostrophic horizontal convection with surface wind stress

Sohail, Taimoor; Vreugdenhil, Catherine A.; Gayen, Bishakhdatta; Hogg, Andy


Direct Numerical Simulations are conducted to investigate heat and mass transport of flow with buoyancy forcing and surface wind stress. We use a re-entrant channel model with thermal and mechanical forcing similar to the Southern Ocean, with increasing surface wind stress. The model fully characterises convection and turbulence in the fluid. The presence of convection appears to significantly enhance the buoyancydriven overturning, resulting in an overturning cell which dominates the flow...[Show more]
