-modified Ekman layer, and how it modifies SI and GI. These topics will be addressed in a forthcoming paper that focuses on the instability mechanisms that depend on viscosity in the mixed layer. Acknowledgments The authors thank Prof. Gregory Chini for insightful discussions of interactions between symmetric instability and Langmuir circulations, Prof. Eric D’Asaro for suggesting that the submesoscale instabilities of the boundary layer including Stokes forces be explored, and Dr. Peter Sullivan for help

affect such processes. However, indirect effects could be at play such as direct injection of turbulence in the dissipative boundary layer or Langmuir circulations generated by the surface gravity waves. As shown by, for example, Chini and Leibovich (2003) and Polton et al. (2008) , the latter indeed have the potential to directly interact with internal waves and could once again modify the subsurface processes through which near-inertial waves dissipate their energy. The present mechanism bears
