Nonlocal mixing

From Glossary of Meteorology

nonlocal mixing

The vertical movement and intermingling of fluid from all possible source locations (neighboring and nonneighboring), to produce a mixture at some other location.

The fraction of air mixing into each destination height index i from any source height j is given by a transilient matrix cij. The resulting state of the mixture is given by transilient turbulence theory.
See nonlocal flux.
