(1) The location of the transect
(2) the temperature and salinity structure
(3) the stratification type
Below, Figure 3: The Turner Angle. There are three stratification types: Warm salty water over cool fresh water (salt finger type stratification), cool fresh water over warm salty water (water prone to the diffusive layering double-diffusive instability) and 'diffusively stable' water not subject to double-diffusive instabilities (T and S profiles both gravitationally stable). The white dots show the tow track.
