The structure of subtidal currents within and around Lydonia Canyon: evidence for enhanced cross-shelf fluctuations over the mouth of the canyon; 1989; Article; Journal; Journal of Geophysical Research; Noble, M.; Butman, B.

Summary

The Coriolis force on the cross-canyon flow, turbulent Reynolds stresses, and acceleration of the along-canyon flow balanced the imposed pressure gradient for flow near the rim of Lydonia Canyon. The Coriolis force was not important in the deeper portions of the canyon, where baroclinic adjustments of the density field began to be an important factor in the momentum balance. -from Authors
