Role of overturns in optimal mixing in stratified mixing layers

A Mashayek, Colm-Cille Caulfield & WR Peltier
Turbulent mixing plays a major role in enabling the large scale ocean circulation. The accuracy of mixing rates estimated from observations depends on our understanding of basic fluid mechanical processes underlying the nature of turbulence in a stratified fluid. Several of the key assumptions made in conventional mixing parameterizations have been increasingly scrutinized in recent years, primarily on the basis of adequately high resolution numerical simulations. We add to this evidence by compiling results from...
