Time-depth sections of a the tendency of the vertical salinity gradient (× 10−1 1/m/day), b the vertical salinity gradient (× 10−1 1/m), c the second-order derivative of salinity (× 10−2 1/m2/day), d the tendency of the salinity (× 10−1 1/day), e the vertical gradient of the zonal velocity (× 103 1/day), f the dissipation rate tendency of the turbulent kinetic energy (W/kg/day) at the stationary site of the R/V Mirai. The blue line indicates the 29 °C isotherm. The dashed and dotted lines indicate the MLD and ILD, respectively. The surface wind speed (m/s) is superimposed in f with the right axis. The black bars at the top of ad show freshwater flux (×10−1 m/day)
