The upper-ocean mixed layer, which is defined in this work as the layer where the seawater density is within kg m −3 of the surface value (Huang and Qiu ; Kara et al. b), is deepest in March in the midlatitude North Pacific (Fig. 1, contours).The depth is about m or more in most of the domain, and the mixed layer is particularly deep along 40°N in the subarctic frontal Cited by:

Characteristics of the surface layer in the Northeast Pacific Ocean by L. F. Giovando Download PDF EPUB FB2

The surface layer is the layer of a turbulent fluid most affected by interaction with a solid surface or the surface separating a gas and a liquid where the characteristics of the turbulence depend on distance from the interface.

Surface layers are characterized by large normal gradients of tangential velocity and large concentration gradients of any substances (temperature, moisture. The XCTD casts show a rich and varied surface layer structure in the equatorial and subpolar regions of the Pacific Ocean that is strongly influenced by the salinity stratification.

This highlights the need for complementary salinity and density information in these areas to accurately categorize the true nature of the active mixed by: mixed layer, which may reach to depths of lOOm or more.

Consequently, a variation of 1" or 2°C from normal may reflect a significant gain or loss of heat in this layer.

The structure of the surface layer contains the ocean's "memory" of air-sea exchange out to periods of a year or longer. An accurate characterization of surface layer structure and evolution is necessary for progress in understanding mixing, entrainment, subduction, and restratification processes.

The water characteristics of the entire layer are similar to those on the ocean’s surface. Approximately between 40° N lat. and 40° S lat., beneath the surface layer, lie subsurface intermediate waters that have submerged in subtropical zones of convergence in the northern and southern Pacific.

Fossil layers are nearly isothermal layers that separate the upper well-mixed layer from a deeper well-stratified layer (see Figure 3(b), 31–37° N).The fact that these layers are warmer than the local minimum SST defining the surface layer depth, indicates that they have at some time been.

Haida Eddies are episodic, clockwise rotating ocean eddies that form during the winter off the west coast of British Columbia’s Haida Gwaii and Alaska’s Alexander eddies are notable for their large size, persistence, and frequent recurrence.

In the surface mixed layer (depths to ˜ m), the extent of pH change is consistent with that expected under conditions of seawater/atmosphere equilibration, with an average rate of change of An ocean current that is the product of a balance between pressure-gradient forces and the Coriolis force.

This produces a current flow along the pressure gradient. Such a current does not flow directly from a region of higher pressure to one of lower pressure (i.e. 'down the slope' of the sea surface) but flows parallel to the gradient.
