Vertical Microstructure and Mixing in Stratified Flows
A large part of the mixing processes that take place in geophysical situations have strong temporal and spatial variation of energy inputs, typical examples are sea and mountain brezes, tidal stirring and coastal mixing by waves as well as many industrial applications.
