The thesis describes a method by which near-surface temperature inversions in the ocean may be classified. Although categories of sub-thermocline ducts for sound transmission, formed as a result of these temperature inversions, have been studied in detail in the North Pacific Ocean, classifications are general enough to be applied to ducts in other regions. A considerable variety of sub-thermocline ducting is present in the North Pacific. This variability shows both a seasonal and a positional dependence which may be explained on a stability basis utilizing data obtained from selected Nansen casts reported for stations throughout the North Pacific.
