Can it be a useful idea for a breakwater design – a system that can remove mass (and energy) from the surface at a rate of 4 m3 per second per 1 m2 of the surface? This is the thing considered by Intellectual Venture for hurricane taming.
Just google for “Salter Sink white paper”, as I can not post a link here.
The Salter sink could also be useful for OTEC. Instead of pumping cold water to the surface, this would bring the warm water down to the cold region.
Salter Sink links:
Add turbines, at the bottom and you get electricity…
If you can’t swim with the big fish, stick to the reef
Also, if you can hook the edge to reverse a protion of the flow, you cans get an artficial up-welling, by inducing cold water to flow toward the surface…
