Ocean Turbulence


Ocean turbulence lies at the heart of understanding the climate system on regional to global scales, and over time scales ranging from minutes to hundreds of thousands of years. The processes involved take up spatial scales of thousands of kilometres (basin scale) to centimetres or less (small-scale mixing). Despite such a large spatio-temporal breadth of scales, the turbulence spectrum is energised at all scales, implying a tight connectivity between oceanic phenomena on small and large scales, and on short and long scales. The SIG aims to take an inter-disciplinary approach to understanding ocean turbulence, using theoretical, experimental, computational and observational tools.
