Modeling transport and mixing by internal gravity waves in the Southern Ocean

12/04/2018 - Garcìa Molina Cruz

Motivated by field measurements and numerical modeling of the interaction of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) with rough topography in the Southern Ocean (Naveira-Garabato et al. 2004, Nikurashin & Ferrari 2010), a set of experimental measurements were performed in 2016 in the Coriolis platform as part of the Adekunle master’s thesis.

In this seminar, results of 2D and 3D numerical simulations using the model NHM (Non-Hydrostatic Model) developed by Aiki and Yamagata (J. Geophys. Res. 2004) in the context of the CORIOLIS experimental measurements are presented. The goal of these simulations is to have a complementary analysis to have a better understanding of the experimental measurements performed by Adekunle in the CORIOLIS platform.
