Environmental Stratified Flows

Stratified flows, universal in environmental and geophysical functions, are char­ acterized through the adaptation of fluid density within the vertical path that may bring about qualitative and quantitative changes of the move styles by means of buoyancy . volatile stratification (dense water/air above gentle water/air) raises the ver­ tical blending through new release of convective cells whereas sturdy stratification mostly suppresses vertical blending of mass and momentum.

A part of this precipitation evaporates and returns to the atmosphere. Another part flows across the ground surface to the next river and to the ocean at last. The rest infiltrates the ground and creates the groundwater body. This groundwater can return to ground surface through springs or it can flow to the next stream and with this to the ocean. During this cycle the form of water may change, but the total amount of water in or on the Earth and in the atmosphere remains the same. 2 Subsurface Water Subsurface water or undergroundwater is referred as all water beneath the surface.
