Mass, salt, and heat transport in the South Pacific.
MetadataShow full item record
Utilizing data from a four month period CSC0RPI0 Expedition, 1967), an analysis was made of the various characteristics of the South Pacific Ocean. This investigation was based on the primary assumption that the geostrophic approximation was valid. A level of no motion was established at 762m and 1203m for the latitudinal sections of 23 and 43° respectively, which satisfied mass and salt continuity requirements . Comprehensive temperature and salinity data extended from the western boundary to the eastern boundary of the South Pacific Ocean, and from the sea surface to the sea floor.
