Turbulent horizontal convection under spatially periodic forcing: A regime governed by interior inertia

Rosevear, Madelaine; Gayen, Bishakhdatta; Griffiths, Ross


Differential heating applied at a single horizontal boundary forces ‘horizontal convection’, even when there is no net heat flux through the boundary. However, almost all studies of horizontal convection have been limited to a special class of problem in which temperature or heat flux differences were applied in only one direction and over the horizontal length of a box (the Rossby problem; Rossby, Deep-Sea Res., vol. 12, 1965, pp. 9–16). These conditions strongly constrain the flow. Here we...[Show more]
