Physical and Biophysical Mixing and Dispersion
(co-chairs: Christine Petersen & Jonathan Nash)

Small-scale vertical and horizontal processes mix water masses, disperse larvae/standing stocks, make nutrients available to the euphotic zone, and allow benthic processes to alter the water column. These same processes also have purely physical consequences - affecting cross-shelf transports, transferring momentum, altering fronts, diluting river plumes etc. In this session, we invite talks of either physical or biophysical nature that address aspects of mixing and dispersion with some relevance to the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
