A new model is proposed to explain the Nielsen’s equilibrium condition. This model takes into account the effects of both turbulent entrainment and diffusion on the growth/erosion of the gradient zone. The existing turbulent entrainment model is modified to make it applicable near the equilibrium condition. The new model predictions indicate the dependence of the equilibrium condition on the mixed layer depth, apart from the salinity and temperature gradients in the gradient zone.
