- Question 2 Clarification: Here by mean flux, I mean "mean eddy flux".
- Question 3 Clarification: sigma_T is the a priori data noise for
- Question 4 Clarification: Assume that your hydrographic stations provide
temperature, salinity, and pressure. If other things seem useful, you may
comment on them as well.
- Question 5 Clarification: The desert island where you are stranded
has no internet access. To be specific, temporal fluctuations of temperature
above the thermocline at 60 N and 40 N are inversely correlated.
XBTs measure temperature as a function of depth. The PDO is a single index
time series that represents fluctuations throughout the Pacific Ocean---it's
actually a mode 1 EOF. See http://tao.atmos.washington.edu/pdo/ for more
