The Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES)

Description:

The Diapycnal and Isopycnal Mixing Experiment in the Southern Ocean (DIMES) was initiated in 2009, with an aim to quantify the role of small- and large-scale turbulent mixing in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). The DIMES field program has focused on the part of the ACC that flows from the abyssal plain in the southeastern Pacific into the topographically rough Drake Passage region and beyond. This special collection brings together analyses of new in-situ data, theory, and numerical simulations all carried out as part of DIMES. DIMES was funded by the US National Science Foundation and by the UK Natural Environment Research Council."
