  • Diapycnal mixing in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current 

    Ledwell, James R.; St. Laurent, Louis C.; Girton, James B.; Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-01)
    The vertical dispersion of a tracer released on a density surface near 1500-m depth in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current west of Drake Passage indicates that the diapycnal diffusivity, averaged over 1 yr and over tens of ...
  • The LatMix summer campaign : submesoscale stirring in the upper ocean 

    Shcherbina, Andrey Y.; Sundermeyer, Miles A.; Kunze, Eric; D’Asaro, Eric; Badin, Gualtiero; Birch, Daniel; Brunner-Suzuki, Anne-Marie E. G.; Callies, Joern; Cervantes, Brandy T. Kuebel; Claret, Mariona; Concannon, Brian; Early, Jeffrey; Ferrari, Raffaele; Goodman, Louis; Harcourt, Ramsey R.; Klymak, Jody M.; Lee, Craig M.; Lelong, M.-Pascale; Levine, Murray D.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Mahadevan, Amala; McWilliams, James C.; Molemaker, M. Jeroen; Mukherjee, Sonaljit; Nash, Jonathan D.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Pierce, Stephen D.; Ramachandran, Sanjiv; Samelson, Roger M.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Shearman, R. Kipp; Skyllingstad, Eric D.; Smith, K. Shafer; Tandon, Amit; Taylor, John R.; Terray, Eugene A.; Thomas, Leif N.; Ledwell, James R. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-08)
    Lateral stirring is a basic oceanographic phenomenon affecting the distribution of physical, chemical, and biological fields. Eddy stirring at scales on the order of 100 km (the mesoscale) is fairly well understood and ...
  • Turbulence and diapycnal mixing in Drake Passage 

    St. Laurent, Louis C.; Naveira Garabato, Alberto C.; Ledwell, James R.; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Toole, John M.; Watson, Andrew J. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-12)
    Direct measurements of turbulence levels in the Drake Passage region of the Southern Ocean show a marked enhancement over the Phoenix Ridge. At this site, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is constricted in its flow ...
