Time-depth sections of a the density, b potential temperature, c salinity, d fluorescence (relative units), e horizontal current velocity, and f dissipation rate of the turbulent kinetic energy at the stationary site of the R/V Mirai. The dashed and dotted lines indicate the MLD and ILD, respectively. The blue line indicates the 29 °C isotherm. The surface wind speed is superimposed in e and f with the right axis. The 24-hour running mean is adopted for each variable except for the dissipation rate of the turbulent kinetic energy. The bars at the top of each panel show the vertical gradients of the density, temperature, and salinity between 6 and 10 m (green: values more than 0.01 kg/m4, 0.03 °C/m, and 0.013 1/m, purple: less than 0.01 kg/m4, 0.03 °C/m, and 0.013 1/m)
