AbstractVertical stability of the fluid particles, mixing, and mesoscale motions in the ocean interior occur mostly along-isopycnals surfaces. Therefore, potential density profiles with high lateral resolution would provide important information about the fluid dynamic and the general circulation in the ocean. Could we observe density changes from seismic data? Is seismic oceanography able to measure density with enough accuracy? How is the relation between seismic reflectors and isopycnals surfaces? We have inverted oceanic impedance from seismic data and then derived density and potential density surfaces from the oceanic impedance. Results of the inverted potential density have been compared with digitized seismic reflectors to show the relation between isopycnals and reflectors. We have also compare the seismic profiles of the GO Survey with the space-coincident CTDs and space and time-coincident XBTs to understand the nature of the reflectivity and its relation with the physical parameters of the ocean
