Record #187260:

Control of lower-limb overturning circulation in the Southern Ocean by diapycnal mixing and mesoscale eddy transfer / Taka Ito, John Marshall.

Title: Control of lower-limb overturning circulation in the Southern Ocean by diapycnal mixing and mesoscale eddy transfer / Taka Ito, John Marshall.
Author(s): Ito, Taka.
Marshall, John.
Date: 2009.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2009.), Vol. 38(12) (2009)
Abstract: Postulates theory that diapycnal mixing and mesoscale eddy transfer in abyssal ocean play important role in buoyancy balance of lower-limb circulation, and develops simple, tonally averaged theory relating strength of overturning circulation to mixing rates. Results of suite of sensitivity experiments with idealized ocean general circulation model show that intense diapycnal mixing is required to close buoyancy budget of lower-limb overturning circulation, in contrast to upper limb, where air-sea buoyancy fluxes can provide required diabatic forcing.
