Separate waves and eddies in stratified turbulence

Henri Lam

Internal Gravity Waves (IGW) occur in stably stratified flows, those where heavy density is below light density.
They are of preponderant interest:
● in the ocean, where a large combination of processes involving
IGW participate in mixing
● in the atmosphere, where IGW mainly transport momentum.
