A review of oceanic fronts
This paper will start with a brief account of oceanic frontal research. The definition of oceanic and acoustic fronts and the distinction between them will be discussed. Examples of frontal structure dynamics, correlation with bottom topography influence of local wind effect and examples of vertical and horizontal scales will be demonstrated. Finally some recommendation for further research will be suggested.
