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.

Bogdanoff, Alec S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2017-02)The daily heating of the ocean by the sun can create a stably stratified near-surface layer when the winds are slight and solar insolation is strong. This type of shallow stable layer is called a Diurnal Warm Layer (DWL). ...
