How far downriver should waste-water be released to avoid contaminating an upstream water source? Using a shallow-water description of inertia-dominated, buoyancy-driven flow,

We consider stratified flows over isolated obstacles in the limit of strong stratification and tall obstacles for which the total kinetic energy of the flow is insufficient to d
DIMES: Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing in the Southern Ocean, and consequences for meridional overturning
Speaker: Sjoerd Groeskamp (UTas)
The global ocean circulation is of great importance for the earth’s climate system through its heat transport and the cycling and storage of CO2.
The last glacial period and the last deglaciation were punctuated by millennial-scale events during which the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) weakened substa
