On the interpretation of energy and energy fluxes of nonlinear internal waves : an example from Massachusetts Bay
MetadataShow full item record
A self-consistent formalism to estimate baroclinic energy densities and fluxes resulting from the propagation of internal waves of arbitrary amplitude is derived using the concept of available potential energy. The method can be applied to numerical, laboratory or field data.

Microbes in nature are limited by carbon and energy : the starving-survival lifestyle in soil and consequences for estimating microbial rates Hobbie, John E.; Hobbie, Erik A. (Frontiers Media, 2013-11-12)Understanding microbial transformations in soils is important for predicting future carbon sequestration and nutrient cycling. This review questions some methods of assessing one key microbial process, the uptake of labile ...
