  • This is probably pretty rare, but sounds travels different in water than air, and it can "sometimes get trapped at the surface, in layers called thermoclines, at the top 325 feet or so."

    TreeHugger

  • In northern Fennoscandia, for example, lakes 10 m deep are usually stratified during the summer and have well-developed thermoclines [56].

    Freshwater ecosystems in the Arctic

  • For example, most fished arctic species are salmonids that tend to prefer cool or cold thermal regimes especially as adults (e.g., lake trout), thus they seek summer refuge in colder waters below thermoclines in lakes.

  • Commas, brimstones, painted ladies coast on the thermoclines along the cliffs.

    Gravity's Rainbow

  • The result is superior target separation in all cover, in thermoclines and in surface clutter.

  • One of the changes we are seeing is 'stratification' of the ocean's 'thermoclines', diminished vertical mixing.

    RealClimate

  • It was concluded by HR Wallingford, that the "AQUAERATOR" is a highly efficient aeration and mixing device, which has the capabilities of breaking both thermoclines and the stronger haloclines, located within deep bodies of fresh, brackish and saline waters.

  • Salter counters that many of the areas where his pumps would be deployed, such as the Caribbean, have thermoclines that start at depths as shallow as 10 to 15 meters below the surface, thereby requiring significantly less pumping in order to strip the warm water from the top layer.
