Impact of multichannel river network on the plume dynamics in the Pearl River estuary
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-08-21)
Impacts of the multichannel river network on plume dynamics in the Pearl River estuary were examined using a high-resolution 3-D circulation model. The results showed that during the dry season the plume was a distinct ...
A dike–groyne algorithm in a terrain-following coordinate ocean model (FVCOM) : development, validation and application
A dike-groyne module is developed and implemented into the unstructured-grid, three dimensional primitive equation Finite-Volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM) for the study of the hydrodynamics around human-made construction ...
Impact of current-wave interaction on storm surge simulation : a case study for Hurricane Bob
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-05-30)
Hurricane Bob moved up the U.S. east coast and crossed over southern New England and the Gulf of Maine [with peak marine winds up to 54 m/s (100 mph)] on 19–20 August 1991, causing significant damage along the coast and ...
Studies of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago water transport and its relationship to basin-local forcings : results from AO-FVCOM
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-06-25)
A high-resolution (up to 2 km), unstructured-grid, fully coupled Arctic sea ice-ocean Finite-Volume Community Ocean Model (AO-FVCOM) was employed to simulate the flow and transport through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago ...
Atmosphere and marginal-sea interaction leading to an interannual variation in cold-air outbreak activity over the Japan Sea
(American Meteorological Society, 2007-12-01)
The interannual variation in cold-air outbreak activity over the Japan Sea is investigated using Japan Meteorological Agency buoy 21002 and Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) wind data, Japan Oceanographic Data Center sea ...
Mean Eulerian subsurface currents measured in the Gulf of Maine and adjacent Scotian and New England shelf and slope regions, 1974-1980
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-11)
The Bedford Institute of Oceanography, E.G.&G., National Marine Fisheries Service, U.S. Geological Survey, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have conducted separate moored array experiments during 1974- 1980 to ...
Southern Ocean GLOBEC moored array and automated weather station data report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)
As part of the U.S. Southern Ocean GLOBEC program, moored time series measurements of temperature, conductivity (salinity), pressure, velocity, and acoustic backscatter were made from March 2001 to March 2003 in and near ...
Introduction to special section : U.S. GLOBEC : physical processes on Georges Bank (GLOBEC)
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-11-18)
Saltwater intrusion into the Changjiang River : a model-guided mechanism study
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-02-12)
The Changjiang River (CR) is divided into a southern branch (SB) and a northern branche (NB) by Chongming Island as the river enters the East China Sea. Observations reveal that during the dry season the saltwater in the ...
Winter marine atmospheric conditions over the Japan Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-12-08)
Four basic types of synoptic-scale conditions describe the atmospheric structure and variability observed over the Japan Sea during the 1999/2000 winter season: (1) flow of cold Asian air from the northwest, (2) an outbreak ...
