DEFINITION
Adiabatic Temperature Changes

Temperature changes related to changes of pressure without external gain or loss of heat.

In a compressible fluid, such as seawater, temperature rises as the fluid is compressed and adiabatic cooling occurs during expansion. The latter is of practical concern when water samples taken in thermally insulated water bottles are taken at great depth and raised to the surface.
