  • Double-diffusive interleaving: The influence of nonconstant diffusivities 

    Walsh, D., and B. Ruddick. 1995. "Double-diffusive interleaving: The influence of nonconstant diffusivities." Journal of Physical Oceanography 25(3): 348-358.
    The influence of nonconstant diffusivity and viscosity on double-diffusive interleaving is examined using a simple model. The analysis allows a prediction of the slope, vertical wavenumber, and growth rate of the fastest-growing ...
  • On a reactive continuum representation of organic matter diagenesis 

    Boudreau, B. P., and B. R. Ruddick. 1991. "On a reactive continuum representation of organic matter diagenesis." American Journal of Science 291(5): 507-538.
    We present a theory for the decay of sedimentary organic matter made of a spectrum (a continuous distribution of an infinite number) of reactive types which can be characterized by a variable function of the decay constant, ...
  • Dispersion of passive tracers by the Oscillating flow of a homogeneous fluid over and isolated topographic feature 

    Thompson, K. R., S. Yingshuo, and B. R. Ruddick. Dispersion of passive tracers by the Oscillating flow of a homogeneous fluid over and isolated topographic feature. World Trade Centre (Singapore), Singapore, 1997.
    The circulation of a time-varying homogeneous fluid over an idealized, axisymmetric feature is examined. The motion is forced by a large-scale background flow that is periodic in time. The focus of the study is the ...
  • Effects of Ambient Turbulence on Interleaving at a Baroclinic Front 

    Smyth, William D., and Barry Ruddick. 2010. "Effects of Ambient Turbulence on Interleaving at a Baroclinic Front." Journal of Physical Oceanography 40(4): 685-712.
    In this paper the authors investigate the action of ambient turbulence on thermohaline interleaving using both theory and numerical calculations in combination with observations from Meddy Sharon and the Faroe Front. The ...
  • Double-diffusive interleaving in the presence of turbulence: The effect of a nonconstant flux ratio 

    Walsh, D., and B. Ruddick. 2000. "Double-diffusive interleaving in the presence of turbulence: The effect of a nonconstant flux ratio." Journal of Physical Oceanography 30(9): 2231-2245.
    The influence of turbulent mixing on double-diffusively driven thermohaline interleaving is investigated. The problem is formulated using a turbulence-modified flux ratio to link the fluxes of T and S; the addition of ...
  • Meddy, spiral arms, and mixing mechanisms viewed by seismic imaging in the Tagus Abyssal Plain (SW Iberia) 

    Song, Haibin, Luis Menezes Pinheiro, Barry Ruddick, and Francisco Curado Teixeira. 2011. "Meddy, spiral arms, and mixing mechanisms viewed by seismic imaging in the Tagus Abyssal Plain (SW Iberia)." Journal of Marine Research 69(4-6): 827-842.
    Seismic imaging of the water column is used to investigate the relative roles of thermohaline intrusive mixing and stirring (straining and shearing) by mesoscale eddies in the NE Atlantic, in and around a Meddy, and in ...
  • Nonlinear equilibration of thermohaline intrusions 

    Walsh, D., and B. Ruddick. 1998. "Nonlinear equilibration of thermohaline intrusions." Journal of Physical Oceanography 28(6): 1043-1070.
    The nonlinear behavior of thermohaline intrusions on a wide front is investigated using a one-dimensional numerical model. The model is used to follow the evolution of a field of intrusions from infinitesimal amplitude to ...
  • The dilution and dispersion of ballast water discharged into Goderich Harbor 

    Wells, Mathew G., Sarah A. Bailey, and Barry Ruddick. 2011. "The dilution and dispersion of ballast water discharged into Goderich Harbor." Marine pollution bulletin 62(6): 1288-1296.
    Observations are presented on dilution and dispersion rates of ballast water discharged under normal operational conditions at the semi-enclosed port of Goderich, Ontario. The ballast water was tagged with Rhodamine-WT dye ...
