article is organized as follows: Section 2 describes the ocean model and evaluates its performance in the upper EUC in comparison to observations from the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) mooring array ( McPhaden et al. 1998 ). Section 3 examines the factors influencing mixing on TIW time scales in the upper EUC, using both the model and TAO data. Section 4 examines the dynamics behind the modulation of mixing by TIWs using a Lagrangian analysis. Section 5 examines the total influence of TIWs

. The realism of the present model in capturing the baroclinic response of the system over the local topography is demonstrated in section 4 by performing a simulation (case M) with barotropic forcing that was measured at station N2 during a period of M 2 -dominant tide in August 2010 and reported as dataset N2a by Alford et al. (2011) . We then turn to the main objective of the paper: evaluation of the accuracy of overturn-based estimates of dissipation at convectively unstable regions above
