  • Article

Results are presented on the dynamic and thermal structures of the active ocean layer in the regions of the Ampere and Whale Banks, which were obtained on the eleventh voyage of the R/V Academician Petrovskii. The field observations indicate that there are regions above the crests of the bank that differ substantially from the surrounding water masses in thermal and dynamic characteristics. The features are given a qualitative explanation in terms of Taylor's column theory.
