Pagination or Media Count:
Numerical methods for computation of oceanic fronts and water type boundaries from synoptic sea surface temperature are described and the results shown and compared. Changes of the position of the fronts and their intensities are demonstrated. The computed fronts are compared with known climatological water type and oceanographic region boundaries. The nature of the fronts and their significance in oceanographic analyses and their effects to fisheries and naval problems are pointed out.
