Double diffusion in oceanography : proceedings of a meeting September 26-29, 1989

MetadataShow full item record
A meeting to review research progress on double-diffusive phenomena in the ocean was held September 26-29, 1989, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Twenty-five oral presentations were made and a number of discussion sessions were held. This report contains manuscripts provided by meeting participants, summaries of the discussion sessions and an extensive bibliography on oceanic double-diffusion. Since double-diffusive processes appear to play an important role in ocean mixing, further research in this field should have high priority. It is hoped that this update on the status of our current understanding will facilitate planning of additional research.
