Abstract

Using large-eddy simulations (LES) it is shown that the depth of a diurnal thermocline h should be scaled by the Zilitinkevich scale L Z , not by the Monin-Obukhov length scale L MO , contrary to the proposition by Pearson et al. Their argument to explain the slower increase of h than L MO using the effect of the preexisting thermocline is also invalid.
