Thermohaline

Science / Weather / Thermohaline: In oceanography, it pertains to when both temperature and salinity act together. An example is thermohaline circulation which is vertical circulation induced by surface cooling, which causes convective overturning and consequent mixing.

Thermohaline Circulation

Science / Marine Biology / Thermohaline Circulation: Movement of seawater that is controlled by density differences that are largely explained in terms of temperature and salinity MORE

Mixed Layer

Science / Weather / Mixed Layer: It is the upper portion of the boundary layer in which air is thoroughly mixed by convection. In oceanography, it is the layer of the water that is mixed through wave action or thermohaline convection MORE
