Depth-time contour plots of the observed and modeled upper ocean temperature and salinity for the Summer 2007 case study (ITP 6).  The top two panels show the observations from ITP 6, the bottom two show the model output (the model was an extension to the Price-Weller-Pinkel [1986] 1-D model).  The base temporal resolution of the ITP data was two profiles per day; the model output has 1-hr resolution.  A black mask is used in the top panels to indicate depths/times that the ITP failed to sample.
