dynamical processes have been proposed to explain this mesoscale–submesoscale transition, including spontaneous instability of deep mixed layers, ageostrophic instability, frontogenesis, and direct wind forcing at mesoscale fronts ( Boccaletti et al. 2007 ; Thomas et al. 2008 ). Numerical simulations suggest that non-quasigeostrophic baroclinic mixed layer instabilities can penetrate into the thermocline, leading to lateral stirring of tracers below the mixed layer ( Badin et al. 2011 ).
