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.
