AbstractMesoscale eddies play an essential role in transporting energy and modulating the spatial and temporal distribution of turbulent mixing. By analyzing the microstructure and hydrographic observation data in the subtropical Northwestern Pacific Ocean (STNWP), we found that the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) dissipation rate influenced by an anticyclonic eddy (AE) in the thermocline was enhanced by at least 3-6 times over the background dissipation level. Most turbulent dissipation is driven by the break of internal wave. The AE effect as the reason for the increasing strength of internal wave energy below the mixed layer indicated a linkage between turbulent dissipation and AE. After discussing the gradient Richardson number, we found that only when the two factors of large internal wave energy and shear instability occurred together could the dissipation rate be enhanced, ultimately promoting turbulent mixing. Moreover, the internal wave field was found to have a higher inertial frequency in the regions influenced by AE than in the background regions where the frequency of the internal wave was dominated mainly by the near-inertial frequency. Therefore, AE can introduce an important, new spatial distribution of internal wave energy, which has a potential influence on turbulent mixing. (C) 2021 Published by Elsevier B.V.
