Interpreting Energy and Tracer Spectra of Upper-Ocean Turbulence in the Submesoscale Range (1-200 km)

Submesoscale (1-200 km) wavenumber spectra of kinetic and potential energy and tracer variance are obtained from in situ observations in the Gulf Stream region and in the eastern subtropical North Pacific. In the Gulf Stream region, steep kinetic energy spectra at scales between 200 and 20 km are co...
