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)

Variability of the Seychelles–Chagos Thermocline Ridge Dynamics in Connection With ENSO and Indian Ocean Dipole

Jessica M. Burns; Bulusu Subrahmanyam IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, 2016

Remote processes, such as El Niño- Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), are primary drivers of the Seychelles-Chagos thermocline ridge (SCTR) interannual variability with respect to ocean temperature and salinity. Although salinity variability in this region is understudied, previous studies have separated out effects of El Niño and IOD on sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies and concluded SST ...


Advances in density and abundance estimation for cetaceans using geospatial modeling

M. C. Ferguson; J. Barlow; L. Ballance; T. Gerrodette; P. Fiedler Oceans 2003. Celebrating the Past ... Teaming Toward the Future (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37492), 2003

To identify and quantify spatial patterns in cetacean density in the eastern Pacific Ocean, we have built generalized additive models (GAMs) of encounter rate (number of sightings per km) and average school size based on the Southwest Fisheries Science Center's 1986-96 survey data. The survey area encompassed over 25 million sq. km, and the tracklines covered almost 200,000 km. Models ...


Simultaneous Nearby Measurements of Acoustic Propagation and High-Resolution Sound-Speed Structure Containing Internal Waves

Frank S. Henyey; Kevin L. Williams; Jie Yang; Dajun Tang IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering, 2010

During the 2006 Shallow Water (SW06) experiment, simultaneous measurements were made of the sound-speed field as a function of range and depth associated with nonlinear internal waves and acoustic propagation at frequencies of 2-10 kHz over a 1-km path. The internal waves were measured by a towed conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) chain to get high resolution. These measurements were coordinated so that ...


On Richardson's number as a criterion for laminar-turbulent-laminar transition in the ocean and atmosphere

J. D. Woods Radio Science, 1969

Dye-tracer experiments in the seasonal oceanic theormocline have revealed a microstructure with a significant fluctuation of shear and density gradient within a vertical distance of 1 cm. It has proved possible to relate the occurrence of localized spots of turbulence with this structure and with internal waves traveling along especially (statically) stable 'sheets' within the thermocline. The thermocline microstructure has ...


Dissipative shallow water internal waves and their acoustical properties

M. K. Broadhead; H. B. Ali OCEANS '95. MTS/IEEE. Challenges of Our Changing Global Environment. Conference Proceedings., 1995

Zhou and colleagues, J. Acoust. Soc. Am., vol.44, p.2042-54 (1991), showed that nonlinear shallow water internal waves (IWs) have the frequency dependent property of enhancing bottom interaction of sound. At preferred frequencies, internal waves can induce the coupling of lower-order waterborne modes to higher order modes, which, in turn, can penetrate more deeply into lossy ocean bottom sediments. In a ...
