Abstract : In support of the Tactical Oceanography Prediction Experiment an extensive series of thermal structure measurements have been made in the Iceland and Greenland Seas with emphasis on the Iceland-Faeroe frontal region. A preliminary analysis of these measurements is given. The goal of the thermal analysis task was primarily to produce near-real time objective maps of the ocean thermal structure on a local microcomputer. These uniform fields were to be available for (1) displays to aid further data gathering efforts, (2) boundary and initial conditions for numerical models, and (3) environmental fields for input to the range-dependent acoustic models. The figures shown in this report are representative of the output generated by this task.
