Convection, turbulent mixing and salt fingers

Wells, Mathew Graeme


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. ΒΆ An extensive series of laboratory experiments were used to quantify the stratification and circulation that result from the...[Show more]
