The role of diurnal cycle in subduction/obduction
MetadataShow full item record
The annual subduction/obduction rate can be calculated in Lagrangian and Eulerian coordinates. In previous studies such calculations were primarily focused on the case with the seasonal cycle only. By extending these calculations to the case including the diurnal cycle of mixed layer depth, the annual subduction/obduction rate can be greatly increased.
