Suppression of Eddy Diffusivity across Jets in the Southern Ocean

(Ferrari, Raffaele and Nikurashin, Maxim), Journal of Physical Oceanography, vol. 40, no. 7, pp. pages, 2010.


Geostrophic eddies control the meridional mixing of heat, carbon, and other climatically important tracers in the Southern Ocean. The rate of eddy mixing is typically quantified through an eddy diffusivity. There is an ongoing debate as to whether eddy mixing in enhanced in the core
