  • Chaotic advection in a steady, three-dimensional, Ekman-driven eddy 

    Pratt, Lawrence J.; Rypina, Irina I.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Wang, P.; Childs, H.; Bebieva, Y. (Cambridge University Press, 2013-12-05)
    We investigate and quantify stirring due to chaotic advection within a steady, three-dimensional, Ekman-driven, rotating cylinder flow. The flow field has vertical overturning and horizontal swirling motion, and is an ...
  • 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 ...
  • A regional modeling study of the entraining Mediterranean outflow 

    Xu, X.; Chassignet, Eric P.; Price, James F.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Peters, Hartmut (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-12)
    We have evaluated a regional-scale simulation of the Mediterranean outflow by comparison with field data obtained in the 1988 Gulf of Cádiz Expedition. Our ocean model is based upon the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) ...
