Abstract : The present invention relates to a system for studying, identifying and characterizing thermal gradients in a volume of water. The system includes a frame for supporting one or more measuring devices and a source of heat for generating a thermal plume in the volume of water. The frame includes a first plate to which the measuring devices are mounted by a plurality of mounting blocks spaced about the periphery of a hole in the first plate. The frame further includes a second plate spaced from the first plate, to which the source of heat is mounted.
