times its own width. Thus, by measuring relative to the float, the effects of both downstream and cross-stream advection were minimized, and changes in frontal properties could be interpreted as temporal changes in a Lagrangian reference frame moving along the axis of the front. 1 The vertical motion of the float within the boundary layer provided estimates of the turbulence intensity and dissipation rate (e.g., section 3c ). The measurements were thus designed to study the properties of boundary

appendix . Oceanographic and meteorological context. The summer LatMix experiment was conducted from 1 to 20 June 2011 in the Sargasso Sea approximately 250 km south-southeast of Cape Hatteras and southeast of the Gulf Stream. The area was selected based on water clarity and relative proximity to shore, to optimize conditions for optical remote sensing by the aircraft and for the relative weakness of the mesoscale eddy field required for low- and moderate-dispersion studies. Bathymetry is generally
