Tales from topological oceans

Abstract:

Functional relationships between variables can offer great illumination to hard problems. In geophysical fluid dynamics these often arise via alignment of gradients, in which case the functional relationship is multivalued; its branches are determined by a topological analysis of the connectedness of level sets, accomplished by the Reeb graph.

The neutral tangent plane, along which mixing in the ocean predominantly occurs, is defined by ∇nρ = ρpn p...
