    Abstract

    This study presents vertical profiles of turbulence parameters obtained in the upper 100 m of the northeastern Atlantic Ocean along a transect from tropical permanently stratified waters to subpolar seasonally stratified waters in July-August 2009. The focus is to fully characterize the vertical mixing along this transect for further studies related to phytoplankton and nutrient distributions. Derived values of temperature eddy diffusivity K
