|Title:||Richardson Number, stability and turbulence - A coherent view|
|Authors:||Varkey, M J|
|Abstract:||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(-1)) is proportional to a process dependent vertical eddy mixing coefficient in water bodies away From surface, bottom and density discontinuities.|
