LatMix combines shipboard, autonomous, and airborne field observations with modeling to improve understanding of ocean stirring across multiple scales. Dispersion of natural and anthropogenic tracers in the ocean is traditionally conceptualized as a two-stage process: The first step, stirring, is an adiabatic rearrangement of water parcels that does not change their potential temperature, salinity, or other tracer concentrations; it tends to stretch tracer patches into convoluted streaks and
