The Mixing Oceanographic Toolbox provides a framework to estimate the dissipation rate and diffusivity from Electromagnetic Autonomous Profiling Explorer (EM-APEX) float observational data. The EM-APEX floats measure the temperature, salinity, pressure, and horizontal velocity of the current. Vertical gradients of velocity and buoyancy are estimated and a finescale parameterization is applied. This method provides order of magnitude estimates of mixing as well as estimates of the regional variability of mixing.

Hi Qiwei. Thank you for your interest in the MX Toolbox! What .pdf files are you not able to open? The only .pdf file to look at in this package is the 'mixing_library_report.pdf' file inside the READ_ME folder. This file has been checked and seems to work fine. There are no other .pdf files associated with the toolbox.
