Abstract
  • Our component of the TROPIC HEAT 1987 experiment was designed to investigate a number of questions raised by our TROPIC HEAT 1984 measurements (Park et al, 1985; Mourn and Caldwell, 1985; Mourn et al, 1986; Chereskin et al, 1986; Mourn et al; 1987). In particular, the goals of LEG 2 of our TROPIC HEAT 1987 experiment (results from LEG 1 are presented in a separate report) were: 1) to examine the along-equatorial variability in mixing rates; 2) to investigate the mixing regime in the eastern Pacific ocean where the equatorial current structure is considerably shallower and where no microstructure measurements had previously been made; 3) to extend our measurements of turbulent dissipation to include a larger dynamic range in wind speeds so that we could further investigate the relation between wind power and dissipation (Mourn and Caldwell, 1985); 4) to acquire a longer series of simultaneous towed thermistor chain and RSVP measurements to investigate in more detail the relation between turbulence bursts and internal waves discovered during the TROPIC HEAT 1984 experiment;
