Аннотация

Turbulent shear flows on shallow continental shelves are of great importance because tides and wind driven flows on the shelf are drivers of the transfer of momentum, heat, and mass (gas) across the air-sea interface. These turbulent flows play an important role in vertical mixing and transport of sediment and bioactive material. Large Eddy Simulation is used to quantify the effects of pressure gradient and wind shear on the distinctive structures of the flow.
