meddies (anticyclonic lenses of Mediterranean origin). These are commonly thought to be monopolar, but a discussion of the literature by Morel and McWilliams (1997) reveals that some meddies could actually be compound S vortices. Direct comparison of our wave-forced simulations is difficult, as the background internal wave field would require amplitudes larger than the typical vertical scale of a meddy (≈400 m, Thorpe 2005 ) and thus larger than the largest known internal waves. Hence, we do not
