Vertical Structure of the Temperature Field in the Atmospheric Layer Near the Surface of the Ocean
Izvestiya, Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics
The results of measurements of the temperature profiles in the air layer near the ocean surface carried out with the help of a descending temperature probe are presented. Most of the temperature drop measured at a height of 10m and near the water surface is concentrated in a 10-centimeter air layer above the surface. In the air layer near the water surface the temperature varies with the height according to a logarithmic law for wind velocities exceeding 3m/sec at a height of 10m.
