The vertical eddy diffusion coefficient of heat has been computed from a least squares trigonometric fit of temperatures measured in the Gulf of Trieste (approximately 21 m depth), at four levels of the water column, from January 1986 to September 1989. This coefficient is supposed to be in the form of a constant plus a time and depth function. In climatological time scales, the constant coefficient is sufficient for the description of annual temperature changes in the lower part (approximately 1021 m depth) of the water column. For the upper part of the column, the possible range of values of the coefficient for the shallow Gulf of Trieste is discussed.

The simple analytical twostrait and twobasin model built by (Candela et al., 1989), which well describes the barotropic flow through the Strait of Gibraltar forced by homogeneous fields of oscillating atmospheric pressure over the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, was improved by allowing the coefficient of linear bottom friction lambda to be frequencydependent. The coefficient lambda is here proportional to the magnitude of the volume flow through the Strait of Gibraltar, and therefore increases with the frequency at very low frequencies, starting from zero. After reaching the extreme, which was tuned to be close to the value of frequencyindependent lambda, the coefficient slowly decreases with frequency. Both approaches, with frequencydependent and...
