  • An experimental study of a mesoscale vortex colliding with topography of varying geometry in a rotating fluid 

    Adduce, Claudia; Cenedese, Claudia (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2004-09)
    The interaction of a self-propagating barotropic cyclonic vortex with an obstacle has been investigated and the conditions for a vortex to bifurcate into two vortices determined. As in a previous study, after a self-propagating ...
  • Laboratory experiments on mesoscale vortices interacting with two islands 

    Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia; Fratantoni, David M. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-30)
    The present study investigates the interaction between a self-propagating cyclonic vortex with two right vertical cylinders and determines the conditions for a vortex to bifurcate into two or more vortices. As in previous ...
  • Mixing in a density-driven current flowing down a slope in a rotating fluid 

    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 ...
  • A new parameterization for entrainment in overflows 

    Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia (American Meteorological Society, 2010-08)
    Dense overflows entrain surrounding waters at specific locations, for example, sills and constrictions, but also along the descent over the continental slope. The amount of entrainment dictates the final properties of these ...
