Temperature, Salinity, Density notes 1112 Temperature, Salinity, Density notes 1112 Presentation Transcript

  • 8. Temperature, Salinity, & Density in Seawater
  • Thermocline
    • Rapid change in temperature as you go deeper in the ocean
  • Can you tell where the thermocline is?
  • Pycnocline
    • Rapid change in density as you go deeper in the ocean
  •  
  • Halocline Rapid change in salinity as you go deeper in the ocean
  • How are Thermoclines, Haloclines, & Pycnoclines related?
    • 1) As you go deeper, temperature in the ocean:
      • increases (gets warmer) OR decreases (gets colder)?
    • 2) As you go deeper, density and salinity in the ocean:
      • increase (gets saltier) OR decrease (gets less salty)?
    • 3) As you go deeper, pressure in the ocean:
    • - increases (there is more pressure) OR decreases (there is less pressure)
