Toward a stochastic parameterization of ocean mesoscale eddies

Abstract:

A stochastic parameterization of ocean mesoscale eddies is constructed in order to account for the fluctuations in subgrid transport and to represent upscale turbulent cascades. Eddy-resolving simulations to derive the parameterization are performed in a quasi-geostrophic (QG) model in a double-gyre configuration. The coarse-graining of the high-resolution model is giving rise to an eddy source term which represents the turbulent Reynolds stresses. The eddy source term, its mean and fluctuati...
