span the top 1900 m, are all less than 35 m thick. 1 The Interim European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re-Analysis (ERA-Interim; Simmons et al. 2006 ) 6-h winds and buoyancy fluxes force the model’s surface, and the Ocean Comprehensive Atlas (OCCA; Forget 2010 ) provides monthly transports, heat and salt fluxes, as well as sea ice area and thickness at the lateral boundaries. Initial model conditions are an interpolation of the 1° × 1° resolution OCCA state on 1 January 2005

turbulence levels. Integrated dissipation levels were calculated as , and these are shown against integrated flow energy, , in Fig. 8 . Both the ALBATROSS and Phoenix Ridge section data distribute along the trend of D = C · E P , where the least squares fit to the data cloud gives the power as P = 0.9 ± 0.1. The standard error was calculated using a bootstrap method treating each profile as a degree of freedom. Three cases where D < 0.1 mW m −2 stand out in the ALBATROSS data, indicated in
