Abstract:

Observations of temperature and pressure between 10 and 70 m depth were taken with a towed thermistor chain during late August and early September, 1978, about 400 km northwest of Scotland as a part of the JASIN Experiment. The chain was usually towed at a speed of 3 ms around a 15-km square centered at 59 deg. N, 12 deg. 30W. On two occasions tows were made around five-km squares as part of coordinated observations involving several ships. The observations were averaged over sequential 30-second intervals and isotherm depths were interpolated from the averaged observations. Cross-sections of temperature and isotherm depth are presented. Spectra of the depth of the lowest and highest isotherm of each cross-section are also presented. Author
