Abstract:
The results of two papers will be presented:
Shuckburgh, E., Jones, H. Marshall, J. and Hill, C., 2008: Quantifying the eddy diffusivity of tracers in the ocean: 2. regional variability in the Southern Ocean, to be submitted to J. Phys. Oceanogr.
Shuckburgh, E., Jones, H. Marshall, J. and Hill, C., 2008: Quantifying the eddy diffusivity of tracers in the ocean: 1. temporal variability in the Southern Ocean, to be submitted to J. Phys. Oceanogr.
