Abstract or Summary
  • A simple heat budget model for a radiation-dominated mixed layer of constant depth is presented. In this model the influence of the vertical irradiance (heat flux) profile is examined by means of the Jerlov [1976] optical water type classification. It is shown that the vertical irradiance profile is important in determining the mixed layer heating rate. The heating rate varies greatly as a function of water type, mixed layer depth of 20 m and diffusivity beneath the mixed layer of 1.0 cm² s⁻¹ to 0.316°C/day for coastal type 9 with a mixed layer depth of 10 m and zero diffusivity beneath the mixed layer, a variation of more than a factor of 3.
