    One examines the modifications which must be made--and the limitations which must be set--to classical k- epsilon models to extend their application to the simulation of marine mesoscale, synopticscale and macroscale processes which compose the weather-like and general circulations of the sea. The case of the general circulation--for which sub-grid scale fluctuations include such semi-organized motions as tides and storm surges--is discussed in more detail. A 3D k- epsilon model appropriate to the study of the general circulation in a shallow stratified sea is presented and illustrated with the results of a simulation of the general summer circulation in the Northern Bering Sea, made in the scope of the NSF ISHTAR ("Inner Shelf Transfer and Recycling") Program.
