Abstract : Measurements of temporal and spatial scale sizes of small scale temperature fluctuations were made in 19 meters of water from the NUC Oceanographic Research Tower off San Diego, California. Horizontal and vertical measurements were made using a two meter straight line array of seven thermistors. In addition to temperature, waves and orthogonal water particle velocities (turbulence) were measured simultaneously. Internal waves were found on two of five runs. (Modified author abstract)
