fact that both the eddy size and rms eddy velocity are largest there. It will be shown below that these variations are consistent the idea that in the deep tropics eddies propagate at speeds that are much larger than mean currents, thus suppressing mixing. Fig . 3. The zonally averaged diffusivity K eff of Abernathey and Marshall (2013 , red), the zonally averaged eddy diameter L eddy (solid black) of Chelton et al. (2011) , the AVISO rms velocity u rms (solid blue), and the Hughes westward
