A subset of the Optical Dynamics Experiment (ODEX) data set taken from the R/P FLIP in the eastern North Pacific on November 8, 1982 is used to examine the relatiohips among physical and bio-optical parameters. Rapid profiling was done with a CTD equipped with a beam transmissometer and an in situ fluorometer. Intense thermohaline structures are observed to vary on time scales as short as 15 min. Interestingly, the temporal and vertical spatial variability in the physical parameters are often well-correlated with the corresponding variability in the optical parameters. In addition, the extent and intensity of the fluorescence maximum region appears to be modulated by a low frequency internal wave.
