  • Interaction of an eddy with a continental slope 

    Wang, Xiaoming (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
    This study concerns the barotropic interactions between a mesoscale eddy and a straight monotonic bottom topography. Through simple to relatively complicated modeling effort, some of the fundamental properties of the ...
  • A numerical model of mixing and convection driven by surface buoyancy flux 

    Wang, Xiaoming (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
    This thesis studies mixing and convection in a rectangular basin driven by a specified heat flux at the surface. A numerical model is constructed for this purpose. The main focus of the study is on the density and ...
