Abstract : A new wind mixing formula is derived for ARGUS ISLAND, located in 192 feet of water on Plantagenet Bank. The formula indicates that the summer layer depth is deeper over the Bank than in nearby deep water, when wind speed is less than about 15 to 18 knots, and shallower at higher wind speeds. (Author)
