Abstract : Exclusion of terms in the heat budget equation limits successful prediction of oceanic thermal structure. A method is proposed to include the net radiant heat flux, advection, and eddy conductivity terms. Inclusion of these terms is necessary before the thermal structure can be accurately predicted.
