isentropic mixing

isentropic mixing

[¦īs·ən′träp·ik ′mik·siŋ]
(meteorology)
Any atmospheric mixing process which occurs within an isentropic surface; the fact that many atmospheric motions are reversible adiabatic processes renders this type of mixing important, and exchange coefficients have been computed therefor.
