layer of no motion

A layer, assumed to be at rest, at some depth in the ocean.

This implies that the isobaric surfaces within the layer are level, and hence they may be used as reference surfaces for the computation of absolute gradient currents. This same concept can define a level of no motion or a surface of no motion.
