ISCI 1001 – Lecture 19
Water & Energy Aside
Solar Ponds (made by people): *diagram in lecture slide*
-Freshwater
-Liner (black)
oAbsorbs solar E
-Heat salt water
-Pipe
-Brine (H2O saturated w/ salt)
oMore dense than freshwater
Oceans: (marine systems)
-71% of Earth’s surface
-Contain 97.5% of Earth’s water
-Saline (salty) – salinity (33-37 parts per thousand)
Ocean Vertically Structured:
-2 factors that mainly affect vertical structure:
oTemperature
oSalinity
-Halo -> halogen (type of chemical) – chlorine, fluorine, bromine, iodine
-*diagram in lecture slide*
oSurface layer (mixing)
Warm, surface, wind currents
oThermocline (T)
Halocline (salinity)
Pycnocline (density)
oDeep water
T a few °C above 0
