Salinity metrics

The following maps show the difference between the mean salinity of each cast, the difference in the stratification between each cast, and the difference in the depth of maximum stratification (Zs). Triangles mark stations where observations showed an unstratified water column (i.e., no denisty gradient > 0.1 kg m-4).

Map of mean salinity differences here.
Map of stratification differences here.
Map of Zs differences here.
