Thermocline

View this topic in
A thermocline (sometimes metalimnion) is a thin but distinct layer in a large body of fluid (e.g. water, such as an ocean or lake, or air, such as an atmosphere), in which temperature changes more rapidly with depth than it does in the layers above or below. (Wikipedia.org)

Operational Research for Helicopter with Dipping Sonar to Search Submarine

Yingchun Chen; Chunguang Ni; Xianhua Wang 2015 2nd International Conference on Information Science and Control Engineering, 2015

The operational research for a helicopter with a dipping sonar to search a submarine under complex sea environment is studied. The movement models of the helicopter and submarine, the acoustic propagation model, the radiated noise model of submarine, and the detection model of dipping sonar are established. The acoustic propagation model considers the influences of sound speed profile and sea ...


Arctic Ocean warming: submarine and acoustic measurements

P. Mikhalevsky; A. Gavrilov; M. S. Moustafa; B. Sperry MTS/IEEE Oceans 2001. An Ocean Odyssey. Conference Proceedings (IEEE Cat. No.01CH37295), 2001

In 1993 the USS Pargo made the first Submarine Science Expedition (SCICEX) to the Arctic Ocean. In April 1994 the first Transarctic Acoustic Propagation (TAP) experiment designed to measure Arctic Ocean temperature was conducted. SCICEX cruises to the Arctic followed annually from 1995 to 2000. Expendable CTDs and on some cruises standard CTDs were deployed along or close to the ...


Distributed energy storage using domestic hot water tanks and a novel thermocline sensor

Peter Armstrong; Malcolm McCulloch IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies, Europe, 2014

This paper presents a novel sensing arrangement which provides resolution of a hot water tank's state of charge enabling effective demand side management. Experimental work demonstrates consistency with independent measurements made by arrays of temperature sensors to within 3% and 5% for energy storage potential and available hot water respectively. Different approaches to signal conditioning are explored and the implications ...


A modular autonomous underwater vehicle for environmental sampling: System design and preliminary experimental results

Ming Zhang; Yuanxin Xu; Bo Li; Danna Wang; Wen Xu OCEANS 2014 - TAIPEI, 2014

A small-size autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for underwater environmental sampling is developed. Example applications include bottom mapping using a sidescan sonar, and thermocline tracking using the conductivity-temperature- depth sensor. The AUV has a modular mechanical, electronic and software design which allows for a simple integration of payload sensors selected for different applications. It consists of five sections: three basic sections, ...


Effects of East China Sea shallow-water environment on acoustic propagation

P. Abbot; S. Celuzza; I. Dyer; B. Gomes; J. Fulford; J. Lynch IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering, 2003

Operational environmental acoustics experiments were conducted over the frequency range of 25 to 800 Hz in September 1997 in the East China Sea, where the water depth was about 100 m. Objectives of the data analysis reported here are to characterize this environment and to assess its complexities as they may impact acoustic propagation as measured by its transmission loss ...
