Abstract : A technique based primarily on heat budget and wind mixing calculations has been developed for predicting the vertical thermal structure of the ocean. The technique essentially modifies the initial thermal structure through incident solar radiation, back radiation, sensible and evaporative heat exchange, convective heat transfer in the water mass, and wind mixing. Predictions are made at 6-hour intervals until 1200Z on the date of forecast. (Author)
