Resumen: We introduce in this paper some elements for the mathematical and numerical analysis of turbulence models for oceanic surface mixing layers. In these models the turbulent diffusions are parameterized by means of the Richardson’s number, that measures the balance between stabilizing buoyancy forces and un-stabilizing shearing forces. The wellpossedness of these models is a difficult mathematical problem, due to the partial monotonic nature of the space operators involved. We analyze the existence and stability of equilibria state, and devise a conservative numerical scheme satisfying the maximum principle. We present some numerical tests for realistic flows in tropical seas that reproduce the formation of mixing layers, in agreement with the physics of the problem.
