Even so with the heating of the surface layer, the subsurface layer and the thermocline
lost heat (process similar to the observed in S2), giving as a result negative heat storage.
The boundary between these two zones is the thermocline
, defined as the depth of the maximum temperature gradient.
A model constructed by the authors also indicates important direct flow of thermocline
water through the ocean interior, confined to the far western Pacific (away from the low-latitude western boundary currents) along 10 [degrees] N.
One tow was made at each pelagic station from the thermocline
(estimated with a thermistor) to the surface (epilimnion sample).
forms at the top initially and slowly moves down to the bottom at the end of a discharge cycle.
was found around 80-100 m in January, reaching the shallowest depth in October (40-70 m).
5 [micro]mol/L, with a tendency to be higher below the thermocline
The phase speed of this wave decreased east of approximately 100[degrees]E, consistent with the shoaling of the mean thermocline
and its effects on baroclinic wave speeds (Giese and Harrison 1990).
Periods of heightened surface-oriented behavior directly aligned with the months in which waters in Southern California exhibit the greatest degree of thermal stratification, with a relatively strong and shallow thermocline
present from May to September throughout the region (Cairns and LaFond, 1966).
During the night time, with more or less stable temperatures and little wind, the stepped structure was eroded, while the thermocline
deepened to 3.
The x-axis for the chilled water graphs is the location of the thermocline
in the TES tank.
You need to factor in what the temperature is where the walleyes are living, though: The surface temperature may be a tepid 84[degrees]F, but chances are, the 'eyes are hanging out in the thermocline
at an ideal 70[degrees]F.
