from the boundary into the interior have been found in the interior of the Arctic basins in both the halocline and the deeper Atlantic layer ( Aagaard and Carmack 1994 ; D'Asaro 1988 ; Manley and Hunkins 1985 ; Muench et al. 2000 ; Timmermans et al. 2008 ). The shallow halocline eddies in the Canada Basin most commonly contain cold and fresh waters of Pacific origin ( Plueddemann et al. 1998 ), which are thought to be formed from the shelfbreak jet along the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas ( Manley

turbulence near topography, for example, breaking lee waves and downslope jets, remain to be explored to examine the generality of the results obtained here. Acknowledgments We are grateful for the support of ONR Grant N00014-09-1028 (program manager Dr. T. Paluszkiewicz). We also thank the three referees whose helpful suggestions have improved the quality of this paper. REFERENCES Alford , M. H. , M. C. Gregg , and M. A.
