- 25 Downloads
The paper describes the thermohaline structure of the Izmir waters obtained from three CTD-surveys carried out in different seasons of 1994. Also, the mechanisms responsible for the formation of the regional peculiarities and the variability of the temperature/salinity field and examined. The results of diagnosis and adaptation computations of the three-dimensional water circulation are analysed, applying a numerical model and CTD-data.
