Abstract

Several schemes are offered for the correction of temperature and velocity in the thermocline for mooring motion. They require measurements from at least two instruments spanning the thermocline and assume that the temporal variation of temperature (a proxy for density) results primarily from the vertical displacement of a fixed profile whose only degree of freedom is its pressure offset. Using two instruments in the thermocline from a mooring (the “GUSTO” mooring) in the Gulf Stream, the procedure is tested against a third on the same mooring.
