Abstract

Thermistor chain records made in the Celtic Sea during April and May 1978 show the onset of the seasonal thermocline. This occurs in a matter of days as a result of a series of heating and mixing events. These events are explained in the light of estimates of heat fluxes and of the effectiveness of wind and tidal mixing as measured by a Monin-Obukhov length scale.
