(Fox-Kemper, Baylor and Ferrari, Raffaele and Pedlosky, Joseph), Journal of Physical Oceanography, vol. 33, pp. pages, 2003.


The decomposition of an eddy flux into a divergent flux component and a rotational flux component is not unique in a bounded or singly periodic domain. Therefore, assertions made under the assumption of uniqueness, implicit or explicit, may be meaningless. Nondivergent,
