Observations are presented on the statistical distribution of temperature fluctuations on horizontal scales from 10 cm to 1 km in the seasonal thermocline. This range is especially interesting because it includes internal wave processes on the long end and it approaches microscale processes on the short end. A measure of the activity level is computed as the variance of horizontal gradients of temperature or conductivity normalized by the square of the mean vertical gradient, essentially a… CONTINUE READING
