  • The impact of abyssal mixing parameterizations in an ocean general circulation model 

    Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-07)
    A parameterization of vertical diffusivity in ocean general circulation models has been implemented in the ocean model component of the Community Climate System Model (CCSM). The parameterization represents the dynamics ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
