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 ...
Modelling of partially-resolved oceanic symmetric instability
(ElsevierOcean Modelling, 2014-08-04)
A series of idealized numerical models have been developed to investigate the effects of partially resolved symmetric instability (SI) in oceanic general circulation models. An analysis of the energetics of symmetric instability ...
