  • Li, Ming; Trowbridge, John H.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2008-02)
    Stratification and turbulent mixing exhibit a flood–ebb tidal asymmetry in estuaries and continental shelf regions affected by horizontal density gradients. The authors use a large-eddy simulation (LES) model to investigate ...
  • Lin, Xiaopei; Yang, Jiayan; Guo, Jingsong; Zhang, Zhixin; Yin, Yuqi; Song, Xiangzhou; Zhang, Xiaohui (American Geophysical Union, 2011-04-29)
    The winter water mass along the Yellow Sea Trough (YST), especially on the western side of the trough, is considerably warmer and saltier than the ambient shelf water mass. This observed tongue-shape hydrographic feature ...
  • Lin, Xiaopei; Yang, Jiayan (American Geophysical Union, 2011-04-29)
    A warm and salty water mass exists along the Yellow Sea Trough (YST) in winter. This oceanic water mass is distinct from the ambient shelf water and is distributed on the western side of the YST. It has long been reasoned ...
  • Benthuysen, Jessica A.; Thomas, Leif N. (2012-05-21)
    During the spindown of a uni-directional, geostrophic current in a homogeneous fluid, asymmetry arises in the vertical velocity and vertical relative vorticity fields. A closed-form, time-dependent solution valid to order ...
  • Taylor, Nathan G.; McAllister, Murdoch K.; Lawson, Gareth L.; Carruthers, Tom; Block, Barbara A. (Public Library of Science, 2011-12-09)
    Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is considered to be overfished, but the status of its populations has been debated, partly because of uncertainties regarding the effects of mixing on fishing grounds. A better ...
  • Hurrell, James W.; Visbeck, Martin; Busalacchi, Antonio J.; Clarke, R. A.; Delworth, T. L.; Dickson, R. R.; Johns, William E.; Koltermann, K. P.; Kushnir, Yochanan; Marshall, D.; Mauritzen, Cecilie; McCartney, Michael S.; Piola, A.; Reason, C.; Reverdin, Gilles; Schott, F.; Sutton, R.; Wainer, I.; Wright, D. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-10-15)
    Three interrelated climate phenomena are at the center of the Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Atlantic research: tropical Atlantic variability (TAV), the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), and the Atlantic ...
  • Mann, Michael E.; Woodruff, Jonathan D.; Donnelly, Jeffrey P.; Zhang, Zhihua (2009-06)
    Atlantic Tropical Cyclone (TC) activity, as measured by annual storm counts, reached anomalous levels over the past decade. The short nature of the historical record and potential issues with its reliability in earlier ...
  • Frye, Daniel E.; Merriam, Steve; Eastwood, Robert L.; Kemp, John N.; McPhee, Neil M.; Liberatore, Stephen P.; Hobart, Edward; Bocconcelli, Alessandro; Tarbell, Susan A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-03)
    The Atlantic Long-Term Oceanogrphic Mooring (ALTOMOOR) has been maintained offshore Bermuda since 1993 as a testbed for the evaluation of new data telemetry technologies and new oceanographic instrumentation. It is currently ...
  • Fuglister, Frederick C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960)
    From the Preface: Within the framework of the observational program in physical oceanography which was executed during the International Geophysical Year of 1957-58, the WOODS HOLE OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTITUTION, Woods Hole, ...
  • Dail, Holly J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-09)
    This thesis focuses on ocean circulation and atmospheric forcing in the Atlantic Ocean at the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, 18-21 thousand years before present). Relative to the pre-industrial climate, LGM atmospheric CO2 ...
  • Came, Rosemarie E.; Oppo, Delia W.; Curry, William B. (American Geophysical Union, 2003-11-25)
    Benthic foraminiferal Cd/Ca from an intermediate depth, western South Atlantic core documents the history of southward penetration of North Atlantic Intermediate Water (NAIW). Cd seawater estimates (CdW) for the last glacial ...
  • Dragos, Paul; Aubrey, David G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-02)
    This report describes and presents the hydrodynamic meaurements made during the Atlantic Shelf Sand Ridge Study at and near Peahala Ridge, offshore of Long Beach Island, New Jersey, in Spring 1985. The intent of this phase ...
  • Sutherland, David A.; Straneo, Fiamma; Stenson, Garry B.; Davidson, Fraser J. M.; Hammill, Mike O.; Rosing-Asvid, Aqqalu (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-02-20)
    Interaction of warm, Atlantic-origin water (AW) and colder, polar origin water (PW) advecting southward in the East Greenland Current (EGC) influences the heat content of water entering Greenland's outlet glacial fjords. ...
  • Isobe, Atsuhiko; Beardsley, Robert C. (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 ...
  • Keppel-Aleks, Gretchen; Randerson, James T.; Lindsay, Keith; Stephens, Britton B.; Moore, J. Keith; Doney, Scott C.; Thornton, Peter E.; Mahowald, Natalie M.; Hoffman, Forrest M.; Sweeney, Colm; Tans, Pieter P.; Wennberg, Paul O.; Wofsy, Steven C. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-07-01)
    Changes in atmospheric CO2 variability during the twenty-first century may provide insight about ecosystem responses to climate change and have implications for the design of carbon monitoring programs. This paper describes ...
  • Papadopoulos, Vassilis P.; Abualnaja, Yasser; Josey, Simon A.; Bower, Amy S.; Raitsos, Dionysios E.; Kontoyiannis, Harilaos; Hoteit, Ibrahim (American Meteorological Society, 2013-03-01)
    The influence of the atmospheric circulation on the winter air–sea heat fluxes over the northern Red Sea is investigated during the period 1985–2011. The analysis based on daily heat flux values reveals that most of the ...
  • Makshtas, A.; Atkinson, D.; Kulakov, M.; Shutilin, S.; Krishfield, Richard A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2007-10-24)
