In the sea, diapycnal fluxes are mainly caused by turbulent processes (microstructure dynamics at the mm-s-scale). Therefore, their understanding and parameterization requires knowledge of the dynamics of oceanic turbulence. In order to investigate such micro-scale structures in the near-surface layer a microstructure profiler was applied, which includes a remotely controlled underwater winch.
