  • Helfrich, Karl R.; Grimshaw, Roger H. J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-03)
    The disintegration of a first-mode internal tide into shorter solitary-like waves is considered. Since observations frequently show both tides and waves with amplitudes beyond the restrictions of weakly nonlinear theory, ...
  • Pedlosky, Joseph (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2011-07-01)
    The downstream development in both space and time of baroclinic instability is studied in a nonlinear channel model on the f-plane. The model allows the development of the instability to be expressed on space and time ...
  • Goyal, Sachin; Perkins, N. C.; Lee, Christopher L. (2007-10)
    Twisted marine cables on the sea floor can form highly contorted three-dimensional loops that resemble tangles. Such tangles or ‘hockles’ are topologically equivalent to the plectomenes that form in supercoiled DNA ...
  • Flierl, Glenn R.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2007-04)
    The nonlinear dynamics of baroclinically unstable waves in a time-dependent zonal shear flow is considered in the framework of the two-layer Phillips model on the beta plane. In most cases considered in this study the ...
  • Henderson, Stephen M.; Guza, R. T.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C.; Bowen, A. J. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-08)
    Nonlinear energy transfers with sea and swell (frequencies 0.05–0.40 Hz) were responsible for much of the generation and loss of infragravity wave energy (frequencies 0.005–0.050 Hz) observed under moderate- and low-energy ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-06)
    A laboratory study has been undertaken to measure the momentum transfer from surface to internal gravity waves in a nonlinear, resonant interaction. The interacting waves form triads for which σ1s - σ2s ± σI = 0 and κ1s - ...
  • Shroyer, Emily L.; Moum, James N.; Nash, Jonathan D. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03-23)
    Ship and mooring data collected off the coast of New Jersey are used to describe the nonlinear internal wave (NLIW) field and the background oceanographic conditions that formed the waveguide on the shelf. The subinertial, ...
  • Benthuysen, Jessica A.; Thomas, Leif N. (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06-05)
    Nonlinear stratified spindown of an along-isobath current over an insulated slope is shown to develop asymmetries in the vertical circulation and vertical relative vorticity field. During spindown, cyclonic vorticity is ...
  • Kukulka, Tobias; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Sullivan, Peter P. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12-11)
    We present observations and simulations of large-scale velocity structures associated with turbulent boundary layer dynamics of a coastal ocean. Special purpose acoustic Doppler current profiler measurements revealed that ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Beet, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-10-09)
    A common problem in climate science is determining whether the pattern of variability in a particular process or variable has changed over time. When the modern observational record is short, this problem can be addressed ...
  • Stanton, Timothy K.; Chu, Dezhang; Reeder, D. Benjamin (IEEE, 2004-04)
    It has long been known that the statistical properties of acoustic echoes from individual fish can have non-Rayleigh characteristics. The statistical properties of echoes from zooplankton are generally less understood. In ...
  • Bhatia, Saurav (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-08)
    The echo statistics of a randomly rough, randomly oriented prolate spheroid that is randomly located in a beampattern are investigated from physics-based principles both analytically and by Monte Carlo methods. This is ...
  • Schroeder, Timothy; Cheadle, Michael J.; Dick, Henry J. B.; Faul, Ulrich; Casey, John F.; Kelemen, Peter B. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-06-28)
    Drilling during ODP Leg 209, dredging, and submersible dives have delineated an anomalous stretch of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge north and south of the 15°20′N Fracture Zone. The seafloor here consists dominantly of mantle ...
  • Palmiotto, Camilla; Corda, Laura; Ligi, Marco; Cipriani, Anna; Dick, Henry J. B.; Douville, Eric; Gasperini, Luca; Montagna, Paolo; Thil, Francois; Borsetti, Anna Maria; Balestra, Barbara; Bonatti, Enrico (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-10-24)
    Most oceanic islands are due to excess volcanism caused by thermal and/or compositional mantle melting anomalies. We call attention here to another class of oceanic islands, due not to volcanism but to vertical motions of ...
  • Sheffield, Justin; Camargo, Suzana J.; Fu, Rong; Hu, Qi; Jiang, Xianan; Johnson, Nathaniel; Karnauskas, Kristopher B.; Kim, Seon Tae; Kinter, Jim; Kumar, Sanjiv; Langenbrunner, Baird; Maloney, Eric; Mariotti, Annarita; Meyerson, Joyce E.; Neelin, J. David; Nigam, Sumant; Pan, Zaitao; Ruiz-Barradas, Alfredo; Seager, Richard; Serra, Yolande L.; Sun, De-Zheng; Wang, Chunzai; Xie, Shang-Ping; Yu, Jin-Yi; Zhang, Tao; Zhao, Ming (American Meteorological Society, 2013-12-01)
    This is the second part of a three-part paper on North American climate in phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) that evaluates the twentieth-century simulations of intraseasonal to multidecadal ...
  • Rey, Jorge R.; Walton, William E.; Wolfe, Roger J.; Connelly, C. Roxanne; O'Connell, Sheila M.; Berg, Joe; Sakolsky-Hoopes, Gabrielle E.; Laderman, Aimlee D. (MDPI AG, 2012-12-11)
    Wetlands are valuable habitats that provide important social, economic, and ecological services such as flood control, water quality improvement, carbon sequestration, pollutant removal, and primary/secondary production ...
  • Kravtsov, Sergey K.; Dewar, William K.; Ghil, M.; Berloff, Pavel S.; McWilliams, James C. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2008-01-18)
    We show that the observed zonally averaged jet in the Northern Hemisphere atmosphere exhibits two spatial patterns with broadband variability in the decadal and inter-decadal range; these patterns are consistent with an ...
  • Malanotte-Rizzoli, Paola; Rossby, H. Thomas (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993)
    On April 19-20, 1993 a two-day workshop was held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on "The North Atlantic Current (NAC) System". The workshop, which was sponsored by NSF/NOAA/ONR reflected a growing sense ...
  • Nowacek, Douglas P.; Johnson, Mark P.; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2003-12-03)
    North Atlantic right whales were extensively hunted during the whaling era and have not recovered. One of the primary factors inhibiting their recovery is anthropogenic mortality caused by ship strikes. To assess risk ...
