Abstract:

The general theoretical framework for oceanic thermal structure prediction is presented. A prediction scheme utilizing the general equation of heat conservation is proposed. The proposed scheme should provide more reliable predictions than are allowed by present empirical techniques and would fully utilize available, as well as projected, capabilities of meteorological and oceanographic automatic data-gathering and disseminating systems.
