Modeling Coherenet Lagrangian Pathways from the Surface Ocean to the Interior

James McWilliams and Peter Sullivan


This project uses numerical simulations of messocale, submesoscale, and microscale turbulent flows to investigate the controlling process for material transport from the oceanic surface mixed layer into the stratified interior. The goals are phenomenological discovery, dynamical understanding, and guidance for field experimental design and measurement interpretation. The modeling tools are the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS) in either hydrostatic or nonhydrostatic mode and Large-Eddy Simulation (LES).
