now taken along the mean buoyancy surfaces and the quantity represents the associated “thickness” field. The surfaces are almost horizontal, suggesting that the entrainment is well approximated by which is how entrainment will be estimated in the following. Equations (22) and (23) provide formulas from which mean entrainment and turbulent work on the mean stratification can be computed. We have evaluated these formulas using the model tracer output every 30 min. The data were fed to the

climatology. The estimates suggesting this are based on what has been learned from this highly idealized study, and it would be of interest to look for observational support. Acknowledgments This research has been supported by NSF Grants OCE-100090 and OCE-100743, the latter in support of the Earth systems modeling initiative. Many of the computations appearing here were conducted on the High Performance Computing Facility maintained by the Florida State University. REFERENCES Arbic , B. , A
