Vertical kinetic energy and turbulent dissipation in the ocean

Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Kunze, E.; Toole, J. M.; St. Laurent, L.; Richards, K. J.; Ruiz-Angulo, A.

Oceanic internal waves are closely linked to turbulence. Here a relationship between vertical wave number (kz) spectra of fine-scale vertical kinetic energy (VKE) and turbulent dissipation
