New Slang - 5

WOD layers (0-17)

Today we take another look at World Ocean Database 'layers' 0-17.

As the graphic to the left shows, these layers are based on latitudes and proceed from the North Pole layer (0) down to the South Pole layer (17).

In the previous posts of this series other aspects of these layers were discussed (New Slang, 2, 3, 4).

In today's post we are taking a look at Conservative Temperature (Appendix One), Photon Count at those CT values in those layers (Appendix Two), and simply Photon Counts at those layers (Appendix Three).

The depths involved are expressed in the 'new slang' for three 'Pelagic Depths (Epipelagic, Mesopelagic, and Bathypelagic).

All calculations are computed using the TEOS-10 C++ library (TEOS-10 Software: Use It Or Lose It).

The previous post in this series is here.
