Record #188675:

A diagnostic model for mixed layer depth estimation with application to Ocean Station P in the northeast Pacific / Richard E. Thomson, Isaac V. Fine.

Title: A diagnostic model for mixed layer depth estimation with application to Ocean Station P in the northeast Pacific / Richard E. Thomson, Isaac V. Fine.
Author(s): Thomson, Richard E.
Fine, Isaac V.
Date: 2009.
In: Journal of Physical Oceanography. (2009.), Vol. 39(6) (2009)
Abstract: Presents simple diagnostic model for estimating mixed layer depth based solely on one-dimensional heat balance equation, surface heat flux, and sea surface temperature. Surface fluxes drive heating or cooling of upper layer whereas surface temperature acts as "thermostat" that regulates vertical extent of layer. Compares daily mixed layer depth estimates from diagnostic model with depths obtained from ocean profiles collected during 1956-80 Canadian weathership programme at Ocean Station P and more recent profiles from vicinity of this station from Argo drifters. Summer mixed layer depths from diagnostic model agree more closely with observed depths and are less sensitive to heat flux errors than those from bulk models.
