Martin, your intuition is very good.  Take a look at following article:


For eddy-resolving/permitting runs, the story may be different: You  
resolve the eddy, and thus don't need GM, but with a lot of small  
eddies there's going to be a lot of local diapycnal mixing on the  
small scale, if the mixing tensor is oriented horizontally, and we  
may use some sort of rotated tensor for that case, too. I don't know  
if anybody has ever looked into that issue.
