This thesis addresses the vertical wavenumber frequency m, omega distribution of vertical shear and strain in the upper ocean. Part of the data set includes measurements from a newly-developed pulse-to-pulse coherent sonar. Chap. 2 discusses its design and performance. Chap. 3 investigates the effects of zooplankton distribution on Doppler sonars which use small ensonified volumes. A secondary data set of isopycnal vertical displacement eta was collected with a profiling CTD system. Vertical shear del wdel z, del vdel z and vertical strain del mdel z data are analyzed in Chap. 4. Shear spectra Vertical strain spectrum Theses.
