A coupled ocean-atmosphere laboratory model of the Antarctic circumpolar current

Hogg, Andrew; Griffiths, Ross


A thermally-driven rotating annulus with two immiscible fluid layers is used as a laboratory analogue for ocean-atmosphere coupling in the Southern Ocean region. The laboratory facility can be tuned to produce a separation in scales between the two layers, and flow in each layer qualitatively resembles observed parameter regimes. The model effectively allows the lower (ocean) layer to be driven by both thermal and momentum forcing, and these two components can be independently varied to...[Show more]
