Ocean Temperature and Velocity Microstructure and Turbulence Data for the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program
Entry ID: Canada_DFO_OcTempVeloMicroTurb

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: As part of the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) program, Fisheries and Oceans
Canada deployed an EPSONDE instrument on the New England Continental Shelf for
two weeks in September 1996 and two weeks in July/August 1997. EPSONDE is used
to make profiles of turbulence in the ocean mixed layer. By measuring the
temperature and velocity microstructure of the water, one can infer rates of
vertical ... View entire text
