Where Will It Go?

Summer Student Fellow Tomasso Ascarelli (from the University of Rome) and WHOI Senior Scientist Jack Whitehead (foreground right) examine the flow of dye in a fluid dynamics experiment. The blue fluid—dyed salt water—was injected onto a sloping white bottom in the rotating tank in the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. Working with Whitehead and WHOI Associate Scientist Claudia Cenedese (not pictured), Ascarelli studied the behavior of density currents on sloping surfaces in the tank in order to better understand the large density currents (sometimes called "streamtubes" or "cataracts") in the real ocean.
