      This study focuses on the fate of exported organic carbon in the twilight zone at two contrasting environments in the North Pacific: the oligotrophic ALOHA site (22°45' N 158°W; Hawaii; studied during June–July 2004) and ...
    • Barium-isotopic fractionation in seawater mediated by barite cycling and oceanic circulation 

      Horner, Tristan J.; Kinsley, Christopher W.; Nielsen, Sune G. (2015-07-09)
      The marine biogeochemical cycle of Ba is thought to be controlled by particulate BaSO4 (barite) precipitation associated with the microbial oxidation of organic carbon and its subsequent dissolution in the BaSO4-undersa ...
    • Barnacle larvae in ice : survival, reproduction, and time to post settlement metamorphosis 

      Pineda, Jesus; DiBacco, Claudio; Starczak, Victoria R. (2005)
      Late stage larvae (cyprids) of the barnacle Semibalanus balanoides frequently encounter freezing conditions along the northwest Atlantic coast. S. balanoides cyprids survived for more than 4 weeks embedded in sea ice, and ...
    • Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor Estuary : case study of a highly eutrophic coastal bay system

      The Barnegat Bay-Little Egg Harbor Estuary is classified here as a highly eutrophic estuary based on application of NOAA’s National Estuarine Eutrophication Assessment model. Because it is shallow, poorly flushed, and ...
    • The baroclinic adjustment of time-dependent shear flows 

      Poulin, Francis J.; Flierl, Glenn R.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2010-08)
      Motivated by the fact that time-dependent currents are ubiquitous in the ocean, this work studies the two-layer Phillips model on the beta plane with baroclinic shear flows that are steady, periodic, or aperiodic in time ...
    • Baroclinic flow around planetary islands in a double gyre : a mechanism for cross-gyre flow 

      Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
      A quasigeostrophic, two-layer model is used to study the baroclinic circulation around a thin, meridionally elongated island. The flow is driven by either buoyancy forcing or wind stress, each of whose structure would ...
    • Baroclinic instability of a meridionally varying basic state 

      Meacham, Stephen P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-06)
      Several problems are addressed herein. They are loosely connected by the theme of resonant triad interactions. The main topic is the finite amplitude evolution of weakly unstable, linear eigenmodes in a meridionally ...
    • Baroclinic instability of time-dependent currents 

      Pedlosky, Joseph; Thomson, James M. (Cambridge University Press, 2003-08-19)
      The baroclinic instability of a zonal current on the beta-plane is studied in the context of the two-layer model when the shear of the basic current is a periodic function of time. The basic shear is contained in a zonal ...
    • Baroclinic instability over topography : unstable at any wave number 

      Pedlosky, Joseph (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2016-01-02)
      The instability of an inviscid, baroclinic vertically sheared current of uniform potential vorticity, flowing along a uniform topographic slope, becomes linearly unstable at all wave numbers if the flow is in the direction ...
    • Baroclinic vortices over a sloping bottom 

      LaCasce, Joseph H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
      Nonlinear quasigeostrophic flows in two layers over a topographic slope are considered. The evolution depends on the size of two parameters which indicate the degree of nonlinearity at depth. The first measures the ...
    • Barotropic Rossby waves radiating from tropical instability waves in the Pacific Ocean 

      Farrar, J. Thomas (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
      Tropical instability waves are triggered by instabilities of the equatorial current systems, and their sea level signal, with peak amplitude near 5°N, is one of the most prominent features of the dynamic topography of the ...
    • Barotropic tide in the northeast South China Sea 

      Beardsley, Robert C.; Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.; Irish, James D.; Ramp, Steven R.; Chiu, Ching-Sang; Tang, Tswen Yung; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Fang, Guohong (IEEE, 2004-10)
      A moored array deployed across the shelf break in the northeast South China Sea during April-May 2001 collected sufficient current and pressure data to allow estimation of the barotropic tidal currents and energy fluxes ...
    • Barotropic tides on the southeast New England shelf : a view from a hybrid data assimilative modeling approach 

      He, Ruoying; Wilkin, John L. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-08-01)
      A high-resolution hybrid data assimilative (DA) modeling system is used to study barotropic tides and tidal dynamics on the southeast New England shelf. In situ observations include tidal harmonics of 5 major tidal ...
