Abstract: On two cruises to Georges Bank, April-June 1995, water column microstructure
data was collected using the free-fall EPSONDE profiler. The profiler measures
temperature microstructure, velocity microstructure, depth, temperature and
conductivity. These measurements yield turbulent kinetic energy dissipation
rates, temperature variance dissipation ... View entire text
