Abstract

The relation between thickness diffusion in layer and level models is set out. Parameterizations of thickness diffusion are related to a parameterization of eddy effects on momentum. The author anticipates where these parameterizations for thickness and momenta are likely to fail and how the anticipated failures may be overcome.
