  abstract = {{A method of parameterization of the energy and enstropy transfers
involving subgrid scales is proposed in order to predict the time
evolution of the energy spectrum at larger scales. The method is based
on the strong non-localness of enstrophy transfer within the enstrophy
inertial range of turbulence in two dimensions. It is applied first to a
master equation derived from an eddy-damped quasi-normal Markovian
model. Comparisons with reference calculations including all the scales
up to the dissipation range show that the method simulates the enstrophy
inertial range accurately up to the cutoff wavenumber. It is then
generalized to direct simulation of the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes
equation: the inertial range is again accurately simulated.
