Estimating suppression of eddy mixing by mean flows

Klocker, Andreas; Ferrari, Raffaele; LaCasce, Joseph H

Description

Particle- and tracer-based estimates of lateral diffusivities are used to estimate the suppression of eddy mixing across strong currents. Particles and tracers are advected using a velocity field derived from sea surface height measurements from the South Pacific, in a region west of Drake Passage. This velocity field has been used in a companion paper to show that both particle- and tracer-based estimates of eddy diffusivities are equivalent, despite recent claims to the contrary. These...[Show more]
