  • Ice-tethered profiler measurements of dissolved oxygen under permanent ice cover in the Arctic Ocean 

    Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Krishfield, Richard A.; Laney, Samuel R.; Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-11)
    Four ice-tethered profilers (ITPs), deployed between 2006 and 2009, have provided year-round dissolved oxygen (DO) measurements from the surface mixed layer to 760-m depth under the permanent sea ice cover in the Arctic ...
  • Mechanisms driving the time-dependent salt flux in a partially stratified estuary 

    Lerczak, James A.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2006-12)
    The subtidal salt balance and the mechanisms driving the downgradient salt flux in the Hudson River estuary are investigated using measurements from a cross-channel mooring array of current meters, temperature and conductivity ...
  • Ocean variability contributing to basal melt rate near the ice front of Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica 

    Arzeno, Isabella B.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Limeburner, Richard; Owens, W. Brechner; Padman, Laurie; Springer, Scott R.; Stewart, Craig L.; Williams, Michael J. M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-07-09)
    Basal melting of ice shelves is an important, but poorly understood, cause of Antarctic ice sheet mass loss and freshwater production. We use data from two moorings deployed through Ross Ice Shelf, ∼6 and ∼16 km south of ...
  • Satellite-based estimates of Antarctic surface meltwater fluxes 

    Trusel, Luke D.; Frey, Karen E.; Das, Sarah B.; Munneke, Peter Kuipers; van den Broeke, Michiel R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-04)
    This study generates novel satellite-derived estimates of Antarctic-wide annual (1999–2009) surface meltwater production using an empirical relationship between radar backscatter from the QuikSCAT (QSCAT) satellite and ...
