Boundary conditions on quasi-Stokes velocities in parameterisations

This paper examines the implications for eddy parameterisations of expressing them in terms of the quasi-Stokes velocity. Another definition of low-passed time averaged mean density (the modified mean) must be used, which is the inversion of the mean depth of a given isopycnal. This definition natur...
