Range profiles 

Range profiles are the seasonal means and expected ranges of temperature and salinity in the area enclosed by the polygon in the displayed map. The statistics have been prepared by Nilgun Kulan based on CTD profiles from Jan 1986 to Feb 2008. For each season and region, a mean profile and standard deviation (in green) has been calculated. The seasons are: Spring (March 1-May 31); Summer (June 1-August 31); Autumn (September 1-Nov 30) and Winter (Dec 1-Feb 28/29).
