Temperature, Salinity, Density notes 1112

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