effects of double-diffusion on a baroclinic vortex by Wendy Marie Smith Download PDF EPUB FB2

A model of an intrusion was made by injecting salt or sugar solution at the surface of a denser layer of sugar or salt solution in a rotating tank to form a baroclinic vortex. Although ocean fronts are often baroclinic, existing models of double-diffusive interleaving have ignored such baroclinic effects as velocity shear and horizontal density gradients.
