|Abstract||Recent findings have highlighted the impact of high frequency (HF) winds on the inertial motions and the consequences on the large-scale oceanic circulation [Wunsch and Ferrari, 2004]. Within this context the present study focuses on the role of intermediate scales related to oceanic mesoscale eddies. Results show that a turbulent eddy field does not affect the impact of HF winds on the inertial motions. However the eddies efficiently and permanently concentrate the wind-forced inertial motions in small-scale anticyclonic structures. This leads to a spatially heterogeneous vertical mixing strongly related to the eddy field properties.|
