Large Eddy Simulation of the Southern Ocean

The data set contains seven Large Eddy Simulations (LES) at the Southern Ocean Flux Site for studies of deep turbulent ocean boundary layers, with and without surface wave effects, and with both idealized and observed forcing by wind, surface buoyancy flux and Stokes drift profiles. There are 20 days of hourly statistics computed every half-hour of turbulence quantities; namely, the vertical fluxes of buoyancy (temperature) and momentum, buoyancy and velocity variances, and the turbulent kinetic energy, its production terms and its dissipation.
