Temperature microstructure profiles at Ocean Station P: preliminary results from the MILE experiment. TEMPERATURE MICROSTRUCTURE PROFILES FROM THE SUB-TROPICAL FRONT--ETC(U) SEP 80 T M OILLON, 0 R CALDWELL NC UNCLASSIFIED * DATA mmumm NL I.E.E.E.'..I cal variation was noted for this Station than has been observed at Ocean Station P or off the Oregon coast. 2 REFERENCES Caldwell, D.R., S.D. Wilcox, and M. Matsler (). A. Observations of vertical temperature microstructure at ocean station P during the mixed layer experiment (Mile) indicate that the shape of the high‐frequency temperature gradient spectrum depends on the relative strengths of turbulence and by:   The average value of H/h for the measured sheet doublets is Thus the evidence of microstructure profiles is that the change in temperature profile produced by billow turbulence is the same in and below the thermocline and both inside and outside frontal zones. 81 ' I I I ' I I I ' I 7"- 6 ~5 h4 o 0 I I i oo Fig. 6.

  Temperature microstructure from an example profile. Profiles of (a) temperature (blue) and temperature gradient d T / d z (black), and blow up of two 12 s segments of d T / d z from (b) a quiescent and (c) an energetic part of the profile (marked as red rectangles in a). In this presentation the time series are averaged to 4 Hz for clarity. Microstructure and acoustic profile time series were collected near Ocean Station P in the eastern subarctic North Pacific and in Saanich Inlet at the south end of Vancouver Island, British.

Microstructure and acoustic profile time series were collected near Ocean Station P in the eastern subarctic North Pacific and in Saanich Inlet at the south end of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, to examine production of turbulent dissipation by swimming marine organisms.

Preliminary temperature microstructure profiles resulting from. the FRONTS experiment in January are presented. Also included are selected profiles Ocean Station P. J. Geophys.
