Project details: ShIC

Acronym: ShIC
Title: Quantification of shear-induced convection and bottom boundary layer mixing in natural waters
Duration: 01.10.2006 - 15.10.2010
Project manager: PD Dr. Lars Umlauf
Funding: DFG
Focus: Transport and transformation processes
Department: Physical Oceanography and Instrumentation
Participation:

Andreas Lorke (University of Konstanz, Germany)

Kooperation:

Alfred Wüest (EAWAG, Switzerland)

Notes:

The focus is on turbulence and mixing in sloping bottom boundary layers that become gravitationally unstable due to the near-bottom shear. With a field programs and modeling studies we compare the Baltic Sea, Lake Constance (Germany), and Lake Alpnach (Switzerland).
