  • LaCasce, Joseph H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    Nonlinear quasigeostrophic flows in two layers over a topographic slope are considered. The evolution depends on the size of two parameters which indicate the degree of nonlinearity at depth. The first measures the ...
  • St. Laurent, Louis C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-09)
    Observations of diapycnal mixing rates are examined and related to diapycnal advection for both double-diffusive and turbulent regimes. The role of double-diffusive mixing at the site of the North Atlantic Tracer ...
  • Bohlen, Walter Franklin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-08)
    A series of laboratory experiments were performed to ascertain the extent and manner of turbulence modification induced by low concentration suspended loads of near neutral buoyancy. Hot-wire measurements of the fluid ...
  • Hendricks, Peter J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-01)
    Millimeter scale fluctuations in refractive index recorded with a freely sinking shadowgraph system are correlated with finestructure profiles of temperature, salinity and density and compared to models of ocean turbulence. ...
  • McKenna, Sean P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    This thesis investigates the physical mechanisms of air-water gas transfer through direct measurements of turbulence at the air--water interface. To enable this study, a new approach to the particle image velocimetry ...
  • Wells, Judith R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
    Oceanic observations indicate that abyssal mixing is localized in regions of rough topography. How locally mixed fluid interacts with the ambient fluid is an open question. Laboratory experiments explore the interaction ...
  • Polzin, Kurt L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
    Oceanic profiles of temperature, salinity, horizontal velocity, rate of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy (ε) and rate of dissipation of thermal variance (χ) are used to examine the parameterization of turbulent ...
  • Colin de Verdiere, Alain (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-08)
    Stimulated by new evidence from both "in situ" oceanic observations and results from numerical modelling, a laboratory study of quasigeostrophic flow and turbulence in a rotating homogeneous fluid has been undertaken. Two ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    This thesis addresses the question of how a highly energetic eddy field could be generated in the interior of the ocean away from the swift boundary currents. The energy radiation due to the temporal growth of non-trapped ...
  • Singleton, Thomas W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    This thesis describes the steps necessary to develop an acoustic vorticity meter for the atmosphere. The analysis is based on Benthic Acoustic Stress Sensor (BASS) technology that is currently used for similar acoustic ...
  • Tochko, John Steven (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-02)
    The design and operation of a unique flow measuring instrument for bottom boundary layer studies in the marine environment is documented. The effectiveness of the instrument in acquiring data with which models of near ...
  • 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. ...
