Abstract

Mixing processes in the deeper Gotland Basin were measured and analysed using the inert tracer CF3SF5, microstructure profiles as well as five permanent moorings yielding two years of in situ data. The tracer spreading showed that mixing rates in the deeper Gotland Basin are dominated by boundary mixing processes. The major mixing agent for the observed mixing rates is identified as sub-inertial topographic waves that are resonantly coupled to wind events.
