Transport by baroclinic turbulence in idealized oceans and atmospheres


The present PhD aims at developing a quantitative theory for the transport induced by baroclinic turbulence. Idealized patches of atmosphere or oceans can be studied in isolation using state-of-the-art numerical methods. The first objective is to determine the

scaling dependence of the transport on the various control parameters of the problem. Beyond the sole determination of the magnitude

of the transport, the second part of the PhD will be concerned with the three-dimensional structure of the turbulent transport : orientation and vertical dependence of the flux vector. This work will be performed in close collaboration with the CLImate Modeling Alliance (CLIMA) and the skill of the resulting parameterization in a global ocean model will be assessed in that context.
