Subsampled Numerical Experiments as a Guide for Field Deployment of Thermistor Chains
Thermistor chains are a standard tool for recording temperature profiles in geophysical flows. Density values can be inferred from readings and the resulting density field analyzed for the passage of internal waves, Kelvin-Helmholtz billows, and other dynamic events. We propose an algorithm to assist with both the optimal placement of these instruments in the field and the interpretation of the resulting measurements. Two examples are presented and compared.
