Ketchum, Bostwick H.
MetadataShow full item record
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has been asked by the New York City Board of Water Supply to study and review recent observations on the distribution of fresh and salt water in the Estuary of the Delaware River. The objective was to determine the relationship between river flow and the salinity in various parts or the estuary so that the effects of the proposed diversion of Delaware River water on the distribution of salinity could be evaluated.

Yu, Lisan (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-06-08)The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is a major source of the surface freshwater input to the tropical open ocean. Under the ITCZ, sea-surface salinity (SSS) fronts that extend zonally across the basins are observed ...
On sea surface salinity skin effect iInduced by evaporation and implications for remote sensing of ocean salinity Yu, Lisan (American Meteorological Society, 2010-01)The existence of a cool and salty sea surface skin under evaporation was first proposed by Saunders in 1967, but few efforts have since been made to perceive the salt component of the skin layer. With two salinity missions ...
From salty to fresh—salinity processes in the Upper-ocean Regional Study-2 (SPURS-2) : diagnosing the physics of a rainfall-dominated salinity minimum Schmitt, Raymond W.; Asher, William E.; Bingham, Frederick; Carton, James A.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Gordon, Arnold L.; Hodges, Benjamin A.; Jessup, Andrew T.; Kessler, William S.; Rainville, Luc; Shcherbina, Andrey Y. (The Oceanography Society, 2015-03)One of the notable features of the global ocean is that the salinity of the North Atlantic is about 1 psu higher than that of the North Pacific. This contrast is thought to be due to one of the large asymmetries in the ...
