Effect of topographic barriers on the rates of available potential energy conversion of the oceans

Stewart, Kial; Saenz Umana, Juan; Hogg, Andrew; Hughes, Graham; Griffiths, Ross


Determining the energy budget of the oceans requires evaluating the rates of available potential energy conversion in the circulation. Calculating these conversion rates depends upon the definition of an appropriate "reference" state of the density field, but this definition is complicated in the oceans by the presence of bottom topography. The trapping of dense fluid by topographic barriers means that there are multiple definitions for the reference state. The approach taken in this paper is...[Show more]
