Turbulence structure in the upper ocean: a comparative study of observations and modeling
Observations of turbulent dissipation rates measured by two independent instruments are compared with numerical model runs to investigate the injection of turbulence generated by sea surface gravity waves. The nearsurface ...
Upper Ocean Response to Large Wind Farm Effect in the Presence of Surface Gravity Waves
The upper ocean response in the presence of a wind farm is studied numerically, taking into account the effect of surface gravity waves. The farm geometry is a simplified rigid rectangle with characteristic size of L aligned ...
Langmuir Turbulence in the HYCOM Ocean Model
(The University of Bergen, 2017)
The impact of parameterising the turbulent mixing induced by surface wave-driven Langmuir turbulence is investigated for a basin-scale configuration of the hybrid-coordinate ocean circulation model HYCOM. Two-year, non-data ...
Turbulence-particle interactions under surface gravity waves
The dispersion and transport of single inertial particles through an oscillatory turbulent aquatic environment are examined numerically by a Lagrangian particle tracking model using a series of idealised test cases. The ...
