  • Hydraulic control of a highly stratified estuarine front 

    MacDonald, Daniel G.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2005-03)
    Observations at the mouth of the Fraser River (British Columbia, Canada) indicate an abrupt frontal transition between unstratified river outflow and a highly stratified river plume with differences in salinity greater ...
  • Mixing processes and hydraulic control in a highly stratified estuary 

    MacDonald, Daniel G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
    This thesis utilizes field data from the Fraser River Estuary, a highly stratified system located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada, to investigate the nature of mixing processes in a highly stratified environment, ...
  • Turbulent energy production and entrainment at a highly stratified estuarine front 

    MacDonald, Daniel G.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Geophysical Union, 2004-05-01)
    Rates of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) production and buoyancy flux in the region immediately seaward (~1 km) of a highly stratified estuarine front at the mouth of the Fraser River (British Columbia, Canada) are calculated ...
