Jacob O. Wenegrat, Michael J. McPhaden and Ren-Chieh Lien Wind stress and near-surface shear in the equatorial Atlantic Ocean Geophysical Research Letters 41

Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL059149

Key Points

  • Near-surface shear must be considered in parameterizations of eddy viscosity
  • Wind stress-dependent eddy viscosities may result in biased estimates of shear
  • Eddy viscosity models that explicitly include the mean shear are proposed
