02.05.13: Eulerian and Lagrangian mean dissipative term in all simulations

These figures show that a spatial average may not be the most appropriate measure for the strength of the circulation. BTW, is the Eulerian and Lagrangian circulation for KH=0.25e3 m2/s versus KH=4e3 m2/s? Yes. In the experiment with KH=0.25e3 m2/s and 2 τ, the Lagrangian-mean flow is eastward along 30°N, consistent with the divergent meridional Lagrangian flow between 9°E and 10°E.
