Raghu Prasad, R (1952) Preliminary observations on the temperature gradients and light penetration in the upper 200 feet of water of the Bay of Bengal. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, 36 (1 A). pp. 60-69.
It is a common experience in the sea in low latitudes that insolation warms the upper layers, and that below a depth of about 100 meters there is usually a rapid fall in temperature. This lower layer of water with rapidly increasing density is known as the thermocline or discontinuity layer. The presence Of otherwise of a thermocline has far reaching effects on the organic produce. tion and the distribution of planktonic organisms.
