If I just want to see the result of background vertical mixing, can I turn off the vertical turbulent closure by undefine the original mixing scheme in the cppdef.h ?

i think that if you do not have any turb closure scheme selected, then the model will just use the values from you ocean*.in file. The values of AKv and AKt are initialized with the values from ocean*.in in mod_mixing.F. So if there are no ana_vmix or GLS_ or KPP_ or MY_ options selected, then it will not update those values.
