    Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia (Cambridge University Press, 2008-05-14)
    We discuss laboratory experiments investigating mixing in a density-driven current flowing down a sloping bottom, in a rotating homogenous fluid. A systematic study spanning a wide range of Froude, 0.8 < Fr < 10, and ...
  • Mixing in the North Atlantic Tracer Release Experiment : observations and numerical simulations of Lagrangian particles and passive tracer 

    Sundermeyer, Miles A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    Mixing and stirring of passive tracer and Lagrangian particles in the open ocean was studied through comparison of observations from the North Atlantic Tracer Release Experiment, a numerical model, and existing theory. ...
  • Mixing processes and hydraulic control in a highly stratified estuary 

    MacDonald, Daniel G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
    This thesis utilizes field data from the Fraser River Estuary, a highly stratified system located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada, to investigate the nature of mixing processes in a highly stratified environment, ...
  • Mixing variability in the Southern Ocean 

    Meyer, Amelie; Sloyan, Bernadette M.; Polzin, Kurt L.; Phillips, Helen E.; Bindoff, Nathaniel L. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-04)
    A key remaining challenge in oceanography is the understanding and parameterization of small-scale mixing. Evidence suggests that topographic features play a significant role in enhancing mixing in the Southern Ocean. This ...
  • Mixotrophy : a widespread and important ecological strategy for planktonic and sea-ice nanoflagellates in the Ross Sea, Antarctica 

    Moorthi, Stefanie D.; Caron, David A.; Gast, Rebecca J.; Sanders, Robert W. (Inter-Research, 2009-03-04)
    Mixotrophic nanoflagellates (MNF) were quantified in plankton and sea ice of the Ross Sea, Antarctica, during austral spring. Tracer experiments using fluorescently labeled bacteria (FLB) were conducted to enumerate MNF ...
