Abstract:

Oceanographic and meteorologic data, namely expendable or mechanical bathythermograph traces and wind reports have been systematically collected for years and every day more observations are made. To handle such a large amount of information, it is advantageous to set up a computerized model which is automatic performs an objective analysis of XBTBT traces to identify the most significant thermal features, such as thermoclines and inversions restricts the human participation to an initial stage dealing with organization of data available and selection of proper values for the parameters of the model and preserves the initial information.
