This volume contains the proceedings of the 19th International LiAuge Colloquium on Ocean Hydrodynamics, the programme of which focused on the relationships between small-scale mixing and large-scale features, transports and processes. The presentation of papers on various methods of parameterization of small-scale turbulent mixing for numerical ocean models was particularly encouraged and this resulted in more than a third of the papers presented at the Colloquium dealing in one way or another with the parameterization problems; many of these papers demonstrate the direct results of modelling. These proportions are well reflected in this volume of proceedings and thus emphasize once more the importance of small-scale turbulence research for such vital practical applications as ocean modelling and forecasting.Ryan, P.J. and Harleman, D.R.F., 1971, Prediction of the annual cycle of temperature change in a stratified lake or reservoir: mathematical model and usera#39;s manual, MIT Tech Rept 137, MIT, ...
