TAYLOR Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom (Manuscript received 14 November 2017, in final form 21 November 2017) A bug in the numerical model used by Whitt and Taylor (2017) has been discovered, wherein the vertical molecular viscous momentum flux was set to zero at the top boundary during the calculation of the explicit part of the viscous stress in the Crank–Nicholson time- stepping scheme. The molecular viscosity is everywhere negligible compared to the subgrid-scale viscosity. However, as a result of this bug, the values of the surface stress t and mixed layer buoyancy flux ratio R plotted in Fig. 1 of Whitt and Taylor (2017) were ML incorrect.
