Convection, turbulent mixing and salt fingers
In this thesis I address several topics concerning the interaction of convection and density stratification in oceans and lakes. I present experimental and theoretical investigations of the interaction between a localized buoyancy source and a heat flux through a horizontal boundary, and of the interactions between salt fingers and intermittent turbulence or shear. ¶ An extensive series of laboratory experiments were used to quantify the stratification and circulation that result from the...[Show more]
