Oceanic frontal divergence alters phytoplankton competition and distribution

no code implementations23 Feb 2022 Abigail Plummer, Mara Freilich, Roberto Benzi, Chang Jae Choi, Lisa Sudek, Alexandra Z. Worden, Federico Toschi, Amala Mahadevan

We explore the impact of submesoscale velocity gradients on phytoplankton ecology using observations, simulations, and theory.

Diversity of growth rates maximizes phytoplankton productivity in an eddying ocean

no code implementations28 Sep 2021 Mara Freilich, Glenn Flierl, Amala Mahadevan

We show that vertical nutrient flux depends both on the vertical motion within the eddying flow and varies nonlinearly with the growth rate of the phytoplankton itself.

Flow-driven branching in a frangible porous medium

1 code implementation6 Jul 2020 Nicholas J. Derr, David C. Fronk, Christoph A. Weber, Amala Mahadevan, Chris H. Rycroft, L. Mahadevan

Channel formation and branching is widely seen in physical systems where movement of fluid through a porous structure causes the spatiotemporal evolution of the medium in response to the flow, in turn causing flow pathways to evolve.
