The Vaisala-Brunt frequency was investigated near the axis of the Florida Current. Data from ninety-three STD stations gives a complete profile of the Vaisala-Brunt frequency N versus depth for this region. Station profiles of N versus depth, a mean profile for the aggregate of stations, a plot of maximum N versus time, and the depth of N max versus time are presented. The standard deviation and variance were computed at three selected depths for N, and for the depth of N max. The average plot of frequency versus depth is shown in figure 4 and is representative of the Vaisala frequency in depth for this location. The depth at which maximum N occurs varies with time as does its magnitude however, no apparent periodicity is noticed. The randomness of this feature may be an important characteristic. Author
