Abstract.A stochastic model for the Lagrangian dynamics of sea dense water plumes, generated by a surface stochastic buoyancy forcing due to wind bursts, is here presented. The entrainment and mixing effect, the dependence of scaling laws on the statistics of the external events, and the enhancing perturbative effect of rotation are discussed.
