Conceptual models of the climate : 2002 program of study, Bounds on turbulent transport
Whitehead, John A.
MetadataShow full item record
The subject of "Bounds of Turbulent Transport" was introduced in a series of ten lectures. The six lecturers constitute almost all the contributors to this subject. The subject was introduced and foundations laid by five lectures by F. H. Busse. In the middle of the first week, L. Howard reviewed his historical first approach to this subject and described more recent advances. Additional lectures by P. Constantine, R. Kerswell, C. Caulfield and C. Doering provided modern advances. We trust that the lecture notes will constitute a timely review of this promising subject.

The turbulent oscillator : a mechanism of low-frequency variability of the wind-driven ocean gyres Berloff, Pavel S.; Hogg, Andrew Mc C.; Dewar, William K. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-09)Intrinsic low-frequency variability is studied in the idealized, quasigeostrophic, midlatitude, wind-driven ocean gyres operating at large Reynolds number. A robust decadal variability mode driven by the transient mesoscale ...

Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2012-05)Data from the Hudson River estuary demonstrate that the tidal variations in vertical salinity stratification are not consistent with the patterns associated with along-channel tidal straining. These observations result ...
