Glacial Ocean Mixing: Investigating the role of diapycnal ocean mixing for glacial climate stability and sensitivity

Diapycnal mixing is a source of potential energy in the ocean and is therefore believed to limit the rate of overturning on centennial and longer timescales. For the present-day ocean, winds and dissipation of tidal energy drive the diapycnal mixing with approximately similar contributions. Both ...
