Table 2.

Mean and standard deviation of the far-field vertical diffusivity (K in cm2 s−1 averaged over the last 500 m of the water column 3500 m ≤ z ≤ 4000 m) for various values of the parameter Ls in (12). The mean K agrees well with oceanic measurements of pelagic vertical diffusivity, and this result is not sensitive to the value of the parameter. But deviations from this mean increase with Ls, i.e., as the nonlocality of the saturation increases.
