  • Efficiency of turbulent mixing in the abyssal ocean circulation 

    Caulfield, Colm-cille Patrick; Mashayek, A; Salehipour, H; Bouffard, D; Ferrari, R; Peltier, W; Smyth, W; Nikurashin, M (American Geophysical UnionGeophysical Research Letters, 2017-07-17)
    Turbulent mixing produced by breaking of internal waves plays an important role in setting the patterns of downwelling and upwelling of deep dense waters and thereby helps sustain the global deep ocean overturning circulation. ...

  • Robust identification of dynamically distinct regions in stratified turbulence 

    Portwood, GD; de, Bruyn Kops SM; Taylor, John Ryan; Salehipour, H; Caulfield, Colm-cille Patrick (Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016-10-18)
    We present a new robust method for identifying three dynamically distinct regions in a stratified turbulent flow, which we characterise as quiescent flow, intermittent layers and turbulent patches. The method uses the ...
