On the basis of the analysis of the data of hydrological observations, we construct an empirical dependence of the vertical heat fluxQ on the temperature gradientT z . The integral advective-diffusive transfer is taken into account by the method of Kolesnikov. We obtain a generalized dependence of the coefficient of vertical thermal diffusivityK z onT z and note that the well-known Rossby-Montgomery relation and Kolesnikov formula are its special cases. We analyze the possibility of application of this dependence to linear and nonlinear problems of thermal conductivity and diffusion in the ocean.
