At both locations, downward increases of potential temperature (0.0006-0.0009[degrees]C/1000 decibar) were observed below ~7000 m depth, which were regarded as the contribution of geothermal heating.
About two-thirds of all float profiles reach 2000 decibars. Because it takes a minimum of six months of data to calculate a final adjustment for salinity drift, less than 10% of the profiles are of the higher level quality-controlled delayed-mode data.
Oceanographic data used to develop predictor variables for the model were dynamic height (referenced to 0/500 decibars) and water temperature.
Its geopotential topography is expressed as the difference (in meters) in height between two defined isobaric surfaces, as for example the surface of the sea and the surface at 1,000 decibars (a depth of about 3,280 ft, or 1,000 m).
