An assessment of density - based fine - scale methods for estimating 1 diapycnal diffusivity in the Southern Ocean


9 Fine-scale estimates of diapycnal diffusivity κ are computed from CTD and XCTD data 10 sampled in Drake Passage and in the eastern Pacific sector of the Southern Ocean and are 11 compared against microstructure measurements from the same times and locations. The 12 microstructure data show vertical diffusivities that are an order of magnitude smaller over… (More)
