Deep ocean water transport by acoustic-gravity waves

Kadri, Usama 2014. Deep ocean water transport by acoustic-gravity waves. Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans 119 (11) , pp. 7925-7930. 10.1002/2014JC010234

Acoustic-gravity waves are compression-type waves propagating with amplitudes governed by the restoring force of gravity. They are generated, among others, by wind-wave interactions, surface waves interactions, and submarine earthquakes. We show that acoustic-gravity waves contribute to deep ocean currents and circulation; they cause chaotic flow trajectories of individual water parcels, which can be transported up to a few centimeters per second.
