Abstract:

The paper discusses the calculation and verification of the coefficient of turbulent temperature conductively, K sub z, in surface water layers of the Black Sea to a depth of 50m. The calculations are based on observational data obtained by Yuliy Shokalskiy observations in the Black Sea by the end of 1954, and by the Black Sea Oceanographic Expedition of 1923 - 1926. It appeared that in the upper layer, to a depth of 15-18m, the K sub z value decreases with depth in accordance with exponential law, but in the underlying layer from 18 to a depth of 50m, the value increases with depth in accordance with the linear law. At the surface K sub z equals 15-25 abs. units, at the depth of 15-18m it is 0.5-0.6 abs. units and at the depth of 50m it is 6.5-7.5 abs. units. By comparing the observed and calculated amplitudes and phase displacements of temperature waves it appeared that the best agreement occurred when K sub z varies in accordance with a scheme calculated by the transformed Fjeldstad method.
