Parameterization of Frontal Symmetric Instabilities. I: Theory for Resolved Fronts
(ElsevierOcean Modelling, 2017-01-01)
A parameterization is proposed for the effects of symmetric instability (SI) on a resolved front. The parameterization is dependent on external forcing by surface buoyancy loss and/or down-front winds, which reduce potential ...
Mesoscale and Submesoscale Effects on Mixed Layer Depth in the Southern Ocean
(American Meteorological SocietyJournal of Physical Oceanography, 2017-09-01)
Submesoscale dynamics play a key role in setting the stratification of the ocean surface mixed layer and mediating air–sea exchange, making them especially relevant to anthropogenic carbon uptake and primary productivity ...
