Kelvin–Helmholtz Instability of Potential Vorticity Layers: A Route to Mixing


For simplicity, spatially infinite layers of uniform anomalous PV are considered. Such layers are characterized by two key parameters: the ratio Δq of their anomalous PV to the background PV, and the angle α between the layer and the direction of the ambient stratification gradient (in suitably scaled coordinates). It is found that Kelvin–Helmholtz appears, for certain values of α, whenever Δq > 8.


Of notable interest is the case of an initially vertical PV layer embedded in a weak ambient shear flow: for sufficiently large Δq, once the PV layer is tilted past a critical angle, Kelvin–Helmholtz instability becomes possible. It is argued that the breakdown of PV layers due to a Kelvin–Helmholtz instability induced by ambient shear might be an important systematic mechanism leading to irreversible mixing during stratosphere–troposphere exchange events. This is discussed in the context of an example of Kelvin–Helmholtz instability observed near a tropopause fold
