Abstract:

Observations of temperature and pressure in the upper 115 m of the Pacific Ocean were taken with a towed thermistor chain during October and November, 1983, as a part of the Mixed Layer Dynamics Experiment MILDEX. The MILDEX area was approximately 400 nautical miles west of Santa Barbara. The chain was towed on four occasions for a total distance of approximately 2500 km. The observations were averaged over sequential 30-second intervals and isotherms depths were interpolated from the averaged observations. Cross-sections of temperature and isotherm depth are presented. Originator-supplied keywords Towed thermistor chain, Upper ocean temperature, Horizontal variability, and Graphs.
