Abstract:

An objective method of analyzing bathythermograph data is discussed. A simple analysis of finite differences provides objective definition of the top, bottom and center of the thermocline. Secondary features such as transients, multiple thermoclines and inversions are examined in the light of this method and objectively analyzed with some success. A general program for the efficient handling of bathythermograph data is suggested and computer flow diagrams given. Author
