Temperature microstructure casts are often analyzed to compute the diapycnal diffusivity K ρ in geophysical flows. In the present study, we analyze 17 microstructure casts obtained during a Kelvin-Helmholtz billowing event at the base of the upper mixed layer in Lake Erie. From these casts, the turbulence properties of the mixing event are investigated and six parameterizations are applied to determine K ρ. In comparison to the Osborn-Cox method, the four-equation overturn Froude number í µí°¹ífatcat:xargad5ihnaa5nfyjiqw553gmy
