Using global arrays to investigate internal-waves and mixing

ocean mixing is driven by breaking internal gravity waves. Energy is input into the internal wave field primarily by the tides and wind [18]. Internal tides are generated where the barotropic tide rubs over rough topography. Some of the resultant baroclinic energy dissipates locally, producing a global map of mixing hotspots that mirrors ...

Internal Waves in Straits Experiment

baroclinic energy fluxes in the South China Sea are measured over spring and neap cycles by the gliders (orange) and are a one month time average from the model (red) and time-mean from the mooring (blue) over roughly the same period as the gliders. Glider fluxes are plotted at 1-day intervals.
