The Dynamics of the Skin Temperature of the Dead Sea
A schematic diagram showing the vertical temperature profiles including the major physical layers (air, skin, and the water column). The diurnal and seasonal variations are shown. Dotted arrows stand for diurnal variations between day (solid gray curves) and night (black curves) temperature profiles. Solid gray and solid black arrows show the day and night skin effect, respectively. The dashed arrow represents the amplitude of the seasonal thermocline.
