Chou, R.L., 1988: Derivation of revised formulae for eddy viscous forces used in the ocean general circulation model. NASA TM-4060. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

THis paper presents a re-derivation of the eddy viscous dissipation tensor commonly used in present oceanographic general circulation models. When isotropy is imposed, the currently-used form of the tensor fails to return to the laplacian operator. In this paper, the source of this error is identified in a consistent derivation of the tensor in both rectangular and earth spherical coordinates, and the correct form of the eddy viscous tensor is presented.
