Abstract:

The near-surface ocean thermal structure surface to ca 400 m is classified into nine distinct types. The time and space distribution of these types is briefly discussed. A rational method for analysisprediction of mixed layer depth MLD and near-surface thermal structure, which has produced satisfactorily verifiable results, is described and flow diagrams for it are given.
