The ocean bottom turbulent boundary layer is investigated using a large eddy simulation (LES) model. The time evolution of the turbulent boundary layer and the vertical and horizontal structure are studied. Derived parameters such as the boundary layer depth, effective eddy viscosity, and energy dissipation rate are estimated from analyses of the model output. Comparison with an observational research is also performed.
