These four lectures are based losely on the two reviews on the mechanical energy budget of the World Ocean by Wunsch and Ferrari 2004 and Ferrari and Wunsch 2009. I recommend starting with the WF2004 paper first.
- Lesson 1: Tues Feb 15 The five main reservoirs of mechanical energy.
- Lesson 2: Thursday Feb 17. The five main reservoirs of mechanical energy continued.
- Lesson 2: Third lecture: Tuesday Feb 22. The maintanence of the main reservoirs. See Scott and Xu, 2009, and references therein.
- Lessons 3 & 4: Fourth lecture: Thursday Feb 24 de 16h25 a 17h40. Routes to dissipation: Inverse cascade, bottom friction, lee wave generation.
