neglect the lateral gradients responsible for wave radiation. PWP lacks the numerical simplicity and possibility of analytic solution. Longer PWP simulations require high-frequency heat and freshwater fluxes. These are unavailable and limit PWP’s use to brief simulations of a single storm event. Comparison between the two models here is a vital step for evaluating the importance of mixed layer depth evolution during a forcing event. We focus on the ocean mixed layer response from 3 to 10 February 2009

. For this analysis, we only use the data from the top 1000 m, both to facilitate comparisons with the XCTD and because this depth range is sampled most extensively by the Argo program and by glider campaigns. Therefore, evaluation of finescale performance in the top 1000 m is a prerequisite for determining what we can learn from routine density profiles. Fig . 1. Locations of CTD stations, XCTD stations, and microstructure profiler stations sampled during the DIMES US2 cruise in summer 2010. Here
