Interaction of salt finger convection with intermittent turbulence

Wells, M; Griffiths, Ross

Description

The diapycnal buoyancy fluxes due to the combined presence of salt finger convection and intermittent turbulent events are discussed. In a series of experiments, salt fingers, which were periodically stirred by a comb of vertical rods, were created in a continuous density gradient using the laboratory sugar/salt analog. Measurements of the buoyancy flux were made by measuring the rate of change of the density gradient. Particular attention was paid to how the time-averaged buoyancy flux varied...[Show more]
