Richardson Number, stability and turbulence- A coherent view
MetadataShow full item record
As turbulence in water is governed by vertical mobility controlled by static stability and horizontal mobility controlled by currents, the Richardson Number should give a measure of turbulence also. It is argued in this note that inverse of the Richardson Number (Ri sup(-1)) is proportional to a process dependent vertical eddy mixing coefficient in water bodies away from surface, bottom and density discontinuities.
