Abstract : Temperature records were obtained at depths of 130, 150, 170, 190, and 250 ft from five buoys initially separated from one another by six miles. Each record had a duration of about one day and records for three successive days were taken. These records were analyzed for autocorrelation and power spectrum The power spectrum was in the frequency range from 0.5 to 12 cph. No lines were observed in the spectrum, showing that the temperature record cannot be synthesized by a linear combination of a few simple harmonic waves. (Author)
