Vertical transports produced by double-diffusive plumes in a confined homogeneous environment

Turner, J

Description

Double-diffusive plumes, injected into surroundings of nearly the same density, are observed to separate near the source and to produce both upward and downward convection, which is enhanced as layers form at the top and bottom of the experimental tank. This process has been quantified in this paper for both sugar plumes in homogeneous salt solution and salt plumes in sugar solution, over a range of small density differences on either side of zero. The tank was fitted with a partition at...[Show more]
