  • Enhanced warming over the global subtropical western boundary currents 

    Wu, Lixin; Cai, Wenju; Zhang, Liping; Nakamura, Hisashi; Timmermann, Axel; Joyce, Terrence M.; McPhaden, Michael J.; Alexander, Michael A.; Qiu, Bo; Visbeck, Martin; Chang, Ping; Giese, Benjamin (2011-11)
    Subtropical western boundary currents are warm, fast flowing currents that form on the western side of ocean basins. They carry warm tropical water to the mid-latitudes and vent large amounts of heat and moisture to the ...
  • Formation and erosion of the seasonal thermocline in the Kuroshio Extension Recirculation Gyre 

    Cronin, Meghan F.; Bond, Nicholas A.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Ichikawa, Hiroshi; Jayne, Steven R.; Kawai, Yoshimi; Konda, Masanori; Qiu, Bo; Rainville, Luc; Tomita, Hiroyuki (Elsevier Ltd., 2012-07-21)
    Data from the Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO) surface mooring are used to analyze the balance of processes affecting the upper ocean heat content and surface mixed layer temperature variations in the Recirculation ...
  • The Kuroshio Extension and its recirculation gyres 

    Jayne, Steven R.; Hogg, Nelson G.; Waterman, Stephanie N.; Rainville, Luc; Donohue, Kathleen A.; Watts, D. Randolph; Tracey, Karen L.; McClean, Julie L.; Maltrud, Mathew E.; Qiu, Bo; Chen, Shuiming; Hacker, Peter (2009-07-01)
    This paper reports on the strength and structure of the Kuroshio Extension and its recirculation gyres. In the time average, quasi-permanent recirculation gyres are found to the north and south of the Kuroshio Extension ...
  • The Kuroshio Extension northern recirculation gyre : profiling float measurements and forcing mechanism 

    Qiu, Bo; Chen, Shuiming; Hacker, Peter; Hogg, Nelson G.; Jayne, Steven R.; Sasaki, Hideharu (American Meteorological Society, 2008-08)
    Middepth, time-mean circulation in the western North Pacific Ocean (28°–45°N, 140°–165°E) is investigated using drift information from the profiling floats deployed in the Kuroshio Extension System Study (KESS) and the ...
  • Low-frequency eddy modulations in the Hawaiian Lee Countercurrent : observations and connection to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation 

    Yoshida, Sachiko; Qiu, Bo; Hacker, Peter (American Geophysical Union, 2011-12-08)
    Interannual-to-decadal time scale eddy variability in the Hawaiian Lee Countercurrent (HLCC) band is investigated using the available sea surface height, sea surface temperature, and surface wind stress data sets. In the ...
  • Monthly atmospheric and oceanographic surface fields for the western North Atlantic : December, 1986-April, 1989 

    Caruso, Michael J.; Singh, Sandipa; Kelly, Kathryn A.; Qiu, Bo (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-04)
    Monthly atmospheric and oceanographic variables for the western North Atlantic Ocean from various sources are presented as contour or vector maps. These fields were assembled for a study of the upper ocean heat budget. ...
  • Observations of the subtropical mode water evolution from the Kuroshio Extension System Study 

    Qiu, Bo; Hacker, Peter; Chen, Shuiming; Donohue, Kathleen A.; Watts, D. Randolph; Mitsudera, Humio; Hogg, Nelson G.; Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-03)
    Properties and seasonal evolution of North Pacific Ocean subtropical mode water (STMW) within and south of the Kuroshio Extension recirculation gyre are analyzed from profiling float data and additional hydrographic and ...
  • Role of the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio–Oyashio systems in large-scale atmosphere–ocean interaction : a review 

    Kwon, Young-Oh; Alexander, Michael A.; Bond, Nicholas A.; Frankignoul, Claude; Nakamura, Hisashi; Qiu, Bo; Thompson, LuAnne (American Meteorological Society, 2010-06-15)
    Ocean–atmosphere interaction over the Northern Hemisphere western boundary current (WBC) regions (i.e., the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio, Oyashio, and their extensions) is reviewed with an emphasis on their role in basin-scale ...
