Short summary
The aim of this study is to clarify the role of the Southern Ocean storms on interior mixing and meridional overturning circulation. A periodic and idealized configuration of the NEMO model has been designed to represent the key physical processes of a zonal portion of the Southern Ocean. Challenging issues concerning how numerical models are able to represent interior mixing forced by high-frequency winds are exposed and discussed, particularly in the context of the overturning circulation.
