A combined laboratory and numerical study of heat transport by baroclinic eddies and axisymmetric flows

Abstract:

The effective contribution to the lateral heat transport in a rotating differentially heated annulus attributable to fully developed baroclinic eddies is determined by the combined use of laboratory measurements and numerical simulations. The total heat transport is determined in the laboratory by real-time calorimetry to a precision of around ±2.5% over a wide range of parameters sampling a wide cross-section of the regular baroclinic wave regime accessible in the rotating annulus up to the ...
