  abstract = {{A lateral diffusion scheme designed to efficiently parameterize the
subgrid scale lures associated with barotropic and baroclinic transients
is presented and tested on a quasi-geostrophic, two layer model, with
law-scale thermal forcing. The scheme is based on formal energy
conservation and potential enstrophy dissipation. At very coarse
resolutions, where the cutoff scale is of the order of the internal
radius of deformation, the diffusion scheme is shown to produce a
realistic amount of potential-to-kinetic energy conversions, and
realistic amplitudes of the large-scale barotropic modes.

  abstract = {{The classical phenomenological relations between dispersion laws,
second-order structure functions and energy spectra are reexamined from
a more quantitative standpoint. It is shown that when a nonlocal energy
spectrum (steeper than k to the -3rd power) is substituted into the
relation giving structure functions or dispersion laws, an infrared
divergence occurs so that the structure functions or dispersion laws at
inertial-range separation are not dominated by contributions from the
inertial range spectrum; they saturate and become independent of
spectral steepness. It follows that the spectral steepness of real flows
in the enstrophy inertial range must be extremely difficult to estimate
from correlation or dispersion measurements alone. This might explain
why the existence of steep spectra, speculated on the basis of numerical
modeling, has not been confirmed by real flow measurements.
