We analyze the expressions for vertical turbulent flows and the coefficients of turbulent exchange in the ocean and their dependences on the stratification of density. It is shown that, in the case of high density gradients, turbulent mixing is localized in separate bounded relatively small zones (turbulized spots or layers). Formulas for typical vertical sizes of turbulent spots and local coefficients of vertical turbulent exchange depending on the Väisälä-Brunt frequency are presented.
