  An analytical model for a coastal boundary current was used to investigate heat and salt budget of exchange flows in the Persian Gulf as a marginal sea. Coastal boundary currents exchange heat and freshwater with the mosphere and the offshore waters. As heat and salinity fluxes caused by air-sea interaction ...  Read More

The layered structure in exchange flows between two basins (Middle and Southern basins of the Caspian Sea)

A. A. Bidokhti; A. Shekarbaghani

Volume 1, Issue 1 , December 2011, , Pages 13-22

  Ocean waters often show layered structures especially where exchange flow between two basins occurs. These structures are often attributed to processes such as double.diffusive convection, internal waves, turbulent modulated mixing. In this paper by examining the vertical structures of temperature, salinity ...  Read More
