We describe a differential approach to the spectral composition of thin thermohaline inhomogeneities in the ocean depending on the mechanisms responsible for their generation and demonstrate the possibilities of this approach in getting realistic hydrophysical results. The statistical classification of fine-structure fluctuations according to their origin is performed on the basis of the joint analysis of the temperature, salinity, and density spectra computed in a section of the vertical profile where the variation of mean gradients of all three parameters is insignificant. On the basis of the constructed mean spectrum of wave elevations, we estimate the dissipative characteristics of the convection of salt fingers and small-scale internal waves.
