Title Non-Fickian Mixing Model for Stratified Turbulent Flows.
Publication Date Sep 2013
Media Count 12p
Personal Author T. M. Ozgokmen
Abstract The long term goal of this project is to develop a better understanding of oceanic processes in the range of 100 m to 10 km, in the so- called submesoscale range. In particular, it is important to explore and find out whether and what type of submesoscale instabilities exist, how they are connected to both larger scale and smaller scale motions, and to what extent they influence transport processes in the ocean. Another important objective of this project is to test how well subgrid-scale (SGS) models for large eddy simulations (LES) work in the presence of backward energy cascade that may be characteristic in submesoscale motions. A long term objective of this effort would be to improve the predictive skill of the Navy numerical models for submesoscale transport in the ocean.
