Statistical physics interpretation of southern ocean mesoscale turbulence

Abstract:

Ocean mesoscale (10-100km) turbulence is integral to the complex and interconnected climate system. Many of the assumptions made in classical turbulence theory are inappropriate for describing the characteristic features of geophysical flows. In particular, when the fluid flow is both forced and dissipative. With increased interest in stochastic parameterization of ocean eddies, it becomes pertinent to consider what the statistics of ocean turbulence should look like as well as consider wh...
