Abstract:

Only those aspects of the oceanographic program related to the variability of the temperature-depth structure and, indirectly, to the sound velocity-depth structure are discussed here. They include 1 variability of the temperature-depth structure related to internal waves and to season 2 results of the time-series analysis of the 6-minute thermistorchain temperature record, including power spectra, auto-correlation functions, and time lag statistics of the oscillations of selected isotherms 3 T-S curves and envelops of observed T and S values showing changes in T-S depth structure which produce a secondary sound channel at approximately 100 meters depth and 4 implications of these observations for prediction of oceanographic parameters and for Navy operational and observational programs.
