Planktonic interactions and chaotic advection in Langmuir circulation
UNSPECIFIED. (1998) Planktonic interactions and chaotic advection in Langmuir circulation. MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTERS IN SIMULATION, 44 (6). pp. 527-544. ISSN 0378-4754Full text not available from this repository.
The role of unsteady laminar flows for planktonic communities is investigated. Langmuir circulation is used, as a typical medium-scale structure, to illustrate mechanisms for the generation of plankton patches. Two behaviours are evident: chaotic regions that help to spread plankton and locally coherent regions that do not mix with the chaotic regions and which persist for long periods of time. The interaction of populations of phytoplankton with zooplankton is discussed, taking into account the variations in plankton buoyancy. (C) 1998 IMACS/Elsevier Science B.V.
