Short summary
Turbulent mixing is crucial in the aquatic environment for regulating the water column structure and the availability of nutrients to support ecosystems. Improving our understanding of how mixing varies with changes in weather, tides, and wave conditions is therefore a key challenge. This paper examines how to avoid and, where necessary, correct for bias due to instrument motion when using a relatively new technique for making long-term observations of turbulence using a moored current meter.
