Small Scale Turbulence and Mixing in the Ocean Book Review:

This volume contains the proceedings of the 19th International Liège Colloquium on Ocean Hydrodynamics, the programme of which focused on the relationships between small-scale mixing and large-scale features, transports and processes. The presentation of papers on various methods of parameterization of small-scale turbulent mixing for numerical ocean models was particularly encouraged and this resulted in more than a third of the papers presented at the Colloquium dealing in one way or another with the parameterization problems; many of these papers demonstrate the direct results of modelling. These proportions are well reflected in this volume of proceedings and thus emphasize once more the importance of small-scale turbulence research for such vital practical applications as ocean modelling and forecasting.

Ocean Circulation and Climate Book Review:

Diapycnal mixing in the ocean interior is driven by a wide range of processes, each with distinct governing physics and unique global geography. Here we review the primary processes responsible for turbulent mixing in the ocean interior, with an emphasis on active work from the past decade. We conclude with a discussion of global patterns of mixing and their importance for regional and large-scale modeling accuracy.

Ocean Mixing Book Review:

The present knowledge of oceanic mixing is summarized. Two processes, 'advection' and 'diffusion, ' which contribute substantially to oceanic mixing and their interaction are recognized in the mechanism of mixing. Environmental features of the sea in relation to advective and diffusive processes are also described.

Stratified Ocean Mixing Book Review:

The aim of this investigation was to shed light on some fundamental issues pertinent to the formation of intrusions and fronts and turbulent mixing in stratified fluids, with the hope that the results will be of use in understanding and modeling of oceanic mixing processes. Two different, but somewhat related, investigations were performed, namely; the formation of intrusions due to the collapse of turbulent patches in stratified fluids, and the influence of molecular diffusion during mixing at a density interface. During the course of these studies, several interesting phenomena were discovered, for most of which theoretical explanations were offered; a summary of the findings is given below and for more details the reader is referred to the respective publications, which are listed at the end of this report.

Breaking and Dissipation of Ocean Surface Waves Book Review:

Wave breaking represents one of the most interesting and challenging problems for fluid mechanics and physical oceanography. Over the last 15 years our understanding has undergone a dramatic leap forward, and wave breaking has emerged as a process whose physics is clarified and quantified. Ocean wave breaking plays the primary role in the air-sea exchange of momentum, mass and heat, and it is of significant importance for ocean remote sensing, coastal and ocean engineering, navigation and other practical applications. This book outlines the state of the art in our understanding of wave breaking and presents the main outstanding problems. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in this topic: researchers, modellers, forecasters, engineers and graduate students in physical oceanography, meteorology and ocean engineering.

Ocean Mixing and Circulation Response in the Marginal Ice Zone Book Review:

A sea ice model using the Rossby-similarity method was added to a two-dimensional, embedded ocean general circulation--mixed layer model. Advection, diffusion, and mixing of buoyancy and momentum were included in the model to determine their effects on the ocean response. In particular, the case of Northern Hemisphere ice edge upwelling was investigated. Ice edge upwelling was created for a down-ice geostrophic wind and varying surface buoyancy flux forcing. It appeared in model solutions for both stationary and moving ice covers and is driven by a divergence in the ocean surface transport across the ice edge. These results are supported by the observations of the NORSEX group in the Greenland Sea MIZ (Johannessen et al, 1983). For an up-ice geostrophic wind, the upper ocean response was modified by the buoyancy forcing and ice motion. The combined effects of the wind forcing and ice motion due to a nonstationary ice cover caused weak downwelling at the ice edge. Application of a downward surface buoyancy flux (simulating ice melting) resulted in a 8 m elevation of the mixed layer depth at the ice edge, or upwelling, next to the downwelling. The existence of this dual (upwelling and downwelling) feature at the ice edge differs from the weak downwelling predicted by Roed and O'Brien (1983). Adding the effects of mixing had a significant impact on the upper ocean response and should be incorporated in future models of dynamical MIZ processes.

Transport and Mixing in Laminar Flows Book Review:

This book provides readers from academia and industry with an up-to-date overview of important advances in the field, dealing with such fundamental fluid mechanics problems as nonlinear transport phenomena and optimal control of mixing at the micro- and nanoscale. The editors provide both in-depth knowledge of the topic as well as vast experience in guiding an expert team of authors. The review style articles offer a coherent view of the micromixing methods, resulting in a much-needed synopsis of the theoretical models needed to direct experimental research and establish engineering principles for future applications. Since these processes are governed by nonlinear phenomena, this book will appeal to readers from both communities: fluid mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.

Large Eddy Simulation of Complex Engineering and Geophysical Flows Book Review:

Originally published in 1993, this book was the first to offer a comprehensive review of large eddy simulations (LES) - the history, state of the art, and promising directions for research. Among topics covered are fundamentals of LES; LES of incompressible, compressible, and reacting flows; LES of atmospheric, oceanic, and environmental flows; and LES and massivelt parallel computing. The book grew out of an international workshop that, for the first time, brought together leading researchers in engineering and geophysics to discuss developments and applications of LES models in their respective fields. It will be of value to anyone with an interest in turbulence modelling.

The One Dimensionality of the Upper Ocean Mixing and the Role of Advection During the POLE Experiment Book Review:

A one-dimensional mixed layer model (Garwood, 1976, 1977) is used to simulate the mixed layer depth and temperature observed during POLEX, a component of the North Pacific Experiment. POLEX occurred during January-February 1974 with mid-ocean observations (35 deg n, 155 deg w) of temperature and salinity made from R/P FLIP, while FLIP was under free-drift conditions. The results of this simulation show that apparent horizontal advection, due to the drift of R/P FLIP, was important in the heat and salinity budgets, but that vertical mixing and mixed layer depth changes were controlled primarily by the one-dimensional response of the turbulent kinetic energy budget to the local atmospheric forcing. Occasionally, surface salinity flux, due to large precipitation rates, can significantly alter (on the order of tens of meters) the thickness of ocean surface turbulent boundary layer, with demonstrated decrease in thickness during a single period of strong precipitation.

Transport and Mixing in Geophysical Flows Book Review:

Transports in fluids can be approached from two complementary perspectives. In the Eulerian view of mixing, the focus is on the concentration field. In the Langrangian view, fluid parcels are followed around as they move with the flow, experiencing chaotic or stochastic motion. This book examines both pictures, presenting a number of theoretical and experimental lectures on various aspects of transport and mixing of active and passive particles in geophysical flows.
