Considering the ocean has been receiving solar energy every day,for thousands of years, why is the modern ocean's averagetemperature still cold (around 3,5 C)? Respond based on the heatbudget.0[G2: rephrase focus on why ocean more or less at steadystate - leads to balanced heat budget]The total flux of energy into and out of the ocean should be zero.
According to the ICOADS dataset, what is the accuracy of themean flux of the ocean when averaged over all the seas surface?[G1 Hard to remember these details]
Is solar output constant?
Match the major terms of the heat budget at the sea surface to itsdefinition.1 Insolation`_2___Net flux of infrared radiation from the sea
2. Net infrared radiation__3__The flux of heat out of the sea due toconduction3. Sensible heat flux__4__ The flux of energy carried by evaporatedwater4. Latent heat flux__5_The flux of energy carried away bycurrents5. Advection_1___ The flux of solar energy into the seaAssignment 4: Chapter 6 of StewartWhat drives the temperature and depth variability of the mixedlayer?
Indicate which of the following would tend to deepen or shallow themixed layer?
[G1 more specificity in the question, G2 same]
How do aerosols affect sea surface temperature measurementsmade by satellites?
[G2 is this one of the most important topics in the chapter?].
Conductivity [G2 other options?]Sunlight in the ocean is important because:a) It heats sea water, warming the surface layersb) It provides energy required by phytoplanktonc)It is used for navigation by animals near the surfaced) Reflected subsurface light is used for mapping chlorophyllconcentration from spacee) All of the above
The range of depths where the ocean’s temperature gradient is greatestis called __________.
Choose the equipment that can be used for the measurement ofTemperature and Salinity with depth:I) Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT)II) CTDIII) Nansen BottleIV) ADCPV) Ekman Grab
Q: List three measurements needed to calculate the density of seawater.
