By supposing sinusoidal dependence (or uniformity) in time or along a continental shelf of uniform cross-section. Smith them (Berkhoff et al. 1982). Analytical and semi-analytical models are valuable for providing insight and independent solutions with which to interpret and test the numerical models required for complex realistic calculations. A prognostic model (or equation for one component thereof) relates time rates of change (for that component) to contemporary values and thereby predicts to future time.

These have the added bonus that parameters such as density and sound velocity can be calculated and displayed by the listing program. 4. Plots of data sets can be produced to show the spatial distribution of observations or instrument type. These are usually produced as overlays to fit Admiralty charts, but line-printer versions are also possible. Plots can also be produced to show the profiles of observations. Observations can be plotted in either half-monthly, monthly, seasonal or annual periods.

Once the data sets have been selected they are given to the computer analysis programs which produce representative profiles of temperature and salinity. These profiles are only as good as the data set. g. with unstable densities. The results must therefore be edited to produce profiles which are valid not only individually but in relation to other profiles for the same area over the year and in relation to neighbouring areas. Smith CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS Software Plans are in hand to convert the two main existing data banks to relational data bases.
