  • The formation and fate of internal waves in the South China Sea 

    Alford, Matthew H.; Peacock, Thomas; MacKinnon, Jennifer A.; Nash, Jonathan D.; Buijsman, Maarten C.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Chao, Shenn-Yu; Chang, Ming-Huei; Farmer, David M.; Fringer, Oliver B.; Fu, Ke-Hsien; Gallacher, Patrick C.; Graber, Hans C.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Jachec, Steven M.; Jackson, Christopher R.; Klymak, Jody M.; Ko, Dong S.; Jan, Sen; Johnston, T. M. Shaun; Legg, Sonya; Lee, I-Huan; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Mercier, Matthieu J.; Moum, James N.; Musgrave, Ruth; Park, Jae-Hun; Pickering, Andrew I.; Pinkel, Robert; Rainville, Luc; Ramp, Steven R.; Rudnick, Daniel L.; Sarkar, Sutanu; Scotti, Alberto; Simmons, Harper L.; St Laurent, Louis C.; Venayagamoorthy, Subhas K.; Wang, Yu-Huai; Wang, Joe; Yang, Yiing J.; Paluszkiewicz, Theresa; Tang, Tswen Yung (2015-03)
    Internal gravity waves, the subsurface analogue of the familiar surface gravity waves that break on beaches, are ubiquitous in the ocean. Because of their strong vertical and horizontal currents, and the turbulent mixing ...
  • Improving oceanic overflow representation in climate models : the Gravity Current Entrainment Climate Process Team 

    Legg, Sonya; Ezer, Tal; Jackson, Laura; Briegleb, Bruce P.; Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Large, William G.; Wu, Wanli; Chang, Yeon; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Peters, Hartmut; Xu, Xiaobiao; Chassignet, Eric P.; Gordon, Arnold L.; Griffies, Stephen; Hallberg, Robert; Price, James F.; Riemenschneider, Ulrike; Yang, Jiayan (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
    Oceanic overflows are bottom-trapped density currents originating in semienclosed basins, such as the Nordic seas, or on continental shelves, such as the Antarctic shelf. Overflows are the source of most of the abyssal ...
  • Preliminary simulations of internal waves and mixing generated by finite amplitude tidal flow over isolated topography 

    Legg, Sonya; Huijts, Karin M. H. (2005-09-29)
    Much recent observational evidence suggests that energy from the barotropic tides may be used for mixing in the deep ocean. Here the process of internal tide generation and dissipation by tidal flow over an isolated Gaussian ...
  • Sensitivity of the ocean state to the vertical distribution of internal-tide-driven mixing 

    Melet, Angelique; Hallberg, Robert; Legg, Sonya; Polzin, Kurt L. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-03)
    The ocean interior stratification and meridional overturning circulation are largely sustained by diapycnal mixing. The breaking of internal tides is a major source of diapycnal mixing. Many recent climate models parameterize ...
