Interleaving intrusions produced by internal waves: a laboratory experiment
A statically stable stratified water column that also contains horizontal property contrasts (either of passive tracer alone or of two dynamically active solutes) is generated and continuously maintained for a long period by releasing two turbulent buoyant plumes of equal buoyancy fluxes into opposite ends of a long channel of water. The bottom outflows from the plumes also continuously excite internal gravity waves that produce a series of counter-flowing quasi-horizontal shear layers which...[Show more]
