Abstract:

For analysis of differential equations governing different processes in the ocean it is necessary to know the orders of magnitude of the terms of these equations. Here are compiled tables of orders of magnitude of different derivatives of temperature, salinity and density of water and current velocity. Data are given for three regions of the World Ocean South and North Atlantic and North Pacific. Some conclusions concerning physical conditions in the given regions were drawn. Author
