  • Stanley, William (IAMSLIC, 1985)
  • Whitmore, Paul; ten Brink, Uri S.; Caropolo, Michael; Huerfano-Moreno, Victor; Knight, William; Sammler, William; Sandrik, Al (Tsunami Society, 2009)
    West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center (WCATWC) response criteria for earthquakes occurring in the Atlantic and Caribbean basins are presented. Initial warning center decisions are based on an earthquake’s location, ...
  • Stanley, Rachel H. R.; Jenkins, William J.; Lott, Dempsey E.; Doney, Scott C. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11-19)
    Air-sea gas exchange is an important part of the biogeochemical cycles of many climatically and biologically relevant gases including CO2, O2, dimethyl sulfide and CH4. Here we use a three year observational time series ...
  • Kumagai, Hidenori; Dick, Henry J. B.; Kaneoka, Ichiro (American Geophysical Union, 2003-12-30)
    We report some of the first noble gas data for in situ lower oceanic crust and shallow mantle. From a suite of gabbros and peridotites recovered from the Atlantis Bank oceanic core complex on the Southwest Indian Ridge, ...
  • Miksis-Olds, Jennifer L.; Donaghay, Percy L.; Miller, James H.; Tyack, Peter L.; Nystuen, Jeffrey A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2007-05)
    The introduction of anthropogenic sound to coastal waters is a negative side effect of population growth. As noise from boats, marine construction, and coastal dredging increases, environmental and behavioral monitoring ...
  • Huang, Kuo-Fang; You, Chen-Feng; Chung, Chuan-Hsiung; Lin, In-Tian (American Geophysical Union, 2011-05-07)
    Here we present high-precision (2σ = ±3 ppm) 87Sr/86Sr measurements in coastal waters, together with salinity, to evaluate water mass mixing and the influence of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) in coastal waters and ...
  • Lai, Zhigang; Chen, Changsheng; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Beardsley, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-13)
    The unstructured grid finite volume coastal ocean model (FVCOM) system has been expanded to include nonhydrostatic dynamics. This addition uses the factional step method with both split mode explicit and semi-implicit ...
  • Lai, Zhigang; Chen, Changsheng; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Beardsley, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-12-21)
    The generation, propagation, and dissipation processes of large-amplitude nonlinear internal waves in Massachusetts Bay during the stratified season were examined using the nonhydrostatic Finite-Volume Coastal Ocean Model ...
  • Trimarchi, James R.; Liu, Lin; Porterfield, D. Marshall; Smith, Peter J. S.; Keefe, David L. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-02)
    The physiology of the early embryo may be indicative of embryo vitality and therefore methods for non-invasively monitoring physiological parameters from embryos could improve preimplantation diagnoses. The self-referencing ...
  • Helfrich, Karl R. (2006-01-29)
    The nonlinear evolution of a localized layer of buoyant, uniform potential vorticity fluid of uniform depth H, width w0 and length L released adjacent to a wall in a rotating system is studied using reduced-gravity ...
  • 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 ...
