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)

Component layout optimization of thermal engine used by underwater gliders

Zhigang He; Yanan Yang; Wendong Niu; Yanhui Wang; Hongwei Zhang; Yuhong Liu; Zhiliang Wu 2012 Oceans, 2012

The thermal-powered glider is a small, autonomous underwater vehicle which absorbs the energy of the ocean thermocline to propel the glider. The thermal engine is the key part of this glider, which affects the range and speed of the glider. The engine is composed of middle bellows, an accumulator, an external bladder, front bellows, and an electrical pump. In this ...


Dynamics and Distribution of Chlorophyll-a off the Changjiang Estuary in Late Summer

Jun Lin; Jianrong Zhu; Jing Zhang 2011 5th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, 2011

An interdisciplinary survey was conducted off the Changjiang (Yangtze River) Estuary from August 27 to September 2, 2009. Salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen (DO), and chlorophyll a were measured with a CTD (SBE 19 plus) multi- sensor system. The distribution of chlorophyll-a off the Changjiang Estuary was resulted from the combination of physical, chemical, geomorphological, and biological forces, including marine currents, ...


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 ...


The INTIFANTE'00 sea trial: preliminary source localization and ocean tomography data analysis

S. M. Jesus; E. Coelho; J. Onofre; P. Picco; C. Soares; C. Lopes MTS/IEEE Oceans 2001. An Ocean Odyssey. Conference Proceedings (IEEE Cat. No.01CH37295), 2001

The INTIFANTE'00 sea trial was a multidisciplinary experiment including testing of an autonomous surface vehicle, underwater communications, source localization and acoustic ocean tomography. The results shown concentrate on the source localization and ocean tomography data sets. The data gathered during a 24 hour run along a range independent track shows strong oceanographic features, possibly due to internal tide signature, both ...


Adaptive sampling of thermoclines with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

Nuno A. Cruz; Aníbal C. Matos OCEANS 2010 MTS/IEEE SEATTLE, 2010

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are routinely being used to provide the scientific community with detailed ocean data at very reasonable costs. In typical operations, AUVs are programmed to follow pre-defined geo-referenced trajectories, while collecting the relevant information about the underwater environment, with a clear separation between navigation and payload sensors. Under the adaptive sampling paradigm, the AUVs are able to ...
