Submesoscale instabilities in mesoscale eddies

Abstract:

Submesoscale processes have been extensively studied in observations and simulations of fronts. Recent idealized simulations show that submesoscale instabilities also occur in baroclinic mesoscale cyclones and anticyclones. The instabilities in the anticyclone grow faster and at coarser grid resolution than in the cyclone. The instabilities lead to larger restratification in the anticylone than in the cyclone. The instabilities also lead to changes in the mean azimuthal jet around the anticyc...
