[1] A new global climatology of the barrier layer (BL) thickness based on the analysis of instantaneous temperature and salinity profiles was presented in the first part of this paper. It is used here to revisit the mean properties of the phenomenon in the tropics. Consistent with previous studies, thick and persistent BLs are detected in the deep tropics of each ocean. Their formation involves various mechanisms such as intense precipitations, oceanic circulation, wind seasonality, and river… CONTINUE READING
