Although ocean fronts are often baroclinic, existing models of double-diffusive interleaving have ignored such baroclinic effects as velocity shear and horizontal density gradients. To determine the importance of these effects, the authors have formulated a linear instability analysis applicable to baroclinic fronts. Two limiting cases are considered: one for fronts with strong vertical and/or horizontal shear, the other for fronts with weak shear. In both limits, double-diffusive interleavingdoi:10.1175/1520-0485(1997)027<1997:eobodd>2.0.co;2 fatcat:i7oo5porwfdwvhrwfluizhejnq
