  • Rotating convection driven by differential bottom heating and its application 

    Park, Young-Gyu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    A convection experiment was done with a rotating rectangular tank as a model of oceanic meridional overturning circulation. Heat flux was fixed at one bottom end of the tank using an electrical heater. Temperature was ...
  • Turbulent mixing in stratified fluids : layer formation and energetics 

    Park, Young-Gyu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-09)
    A turbulent mixing experiment was conducted to observe the dynamics and the energetics of layer formation along with the region of layer formation in the Reynolds number (Re) and the overall Richardson number (Rio) space. ...
