Entry ID: SYNOP_Central_Inlet_Z12_maps

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Contoured Maps of Thermocline Depth. A strong subsurface
temperature gradient, called the thermocline, is associated with the
Gulf Stream. The thermocline slopes downward from the sea
surface to depths of about 1000 meters on the southern side of the
Gulf Stream. Measurements of the subsurface temperature field
were made by two arrays of inverted echo sounders. One ... View entire text
