Abstract:

This dataset contains five of the nine sets of modelling output resulting from an investigation on the effects of horizontal and vertical resolution on model representation of tracer dispersion along the continental slope in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The investigation involved a collaborative effort between the Ecosystem Impacts of Oil and Gas Inputs to the Gulf (ECOGIG) and Gulf of Mexico Integrated Spill Response (GISR) research consortia. This dataset contains the ECOGIG-funded contribution to the study. The model output from the remaining four datasets have been submitted separately by GISR (GRIIDC dataset R1.x137.000:0024). This dataset supports the publication: Bracco, A., Choi, J., Kurian, J., & Chang, P. (2018). Vertical and horizontal resolution dependency in the model representation of tracer dispersion along the continental slope in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Ocean Modelling, 122, 13–25. doi:10.1016/j.ocemod.2017.12.008

Purpose:

To investigate how model resolution (horizontal and vertical) and choices of parameterization for vertical mixing or for tracer mixing impact the representation of lateral and diapycnal dispersion along the continental shelf of the northern Gulf of Mexico.

(2009). Vertical mixing is based on either the K-Profile Parameterization (KPP) scheme (Large et al., 1994) or the Mellor and Yamada (1982) (MY) scheme with level 2.5 closure and the Galperin et al., (1988) modification.
