), and the Mediterranean Sea ( Schroeder et al. 2011 , 2012 ). These experiments have revealed that it is a major challenge to differentiate between hypothesis I and hypothesis II, mainly because of the number of drifters needed in closely spaced clusters. Mixed results have been reported between nonlocal and local dispersion regimes. The practical implications of improving our understanding of multiscale interactions in the ocean have fueled the largest synoptic upper-ocean drifter deployment to

meddies (anticyclonic lenses of Mediterranean origin). These are commonly thought to be monopolar, but a discussion of the literature by Morel and McWilliams (1997) reveals that some meddies could actually be compound S vortices. Direct comparison of our wave-forced simulations is difficult, as the background internal wave field would require amplitudes larger than the typical vertical scale of a meddy (≈400 m, Thorpe 2005 ) and thus larger than the largest known internal waves. Hence, we do not
