  • The CLIMODE field campaign : observing the cycle of convection and restratification over the Gulf Stream 

    Marshall, John C.; Ferrari, Raffaele; Forget, G.; Maze, G.; Andersson, A.; Bates, Nicholas R.; Dewar, William K.; Doney, Scott C.; Fratantoni, David M.; Joyce, Terrence M.; Straneo, Fiamma; Toole, John M.; Weller, Robert A.; Edson, James B.; Gregg, M. C.; Kelly, Kathryn A.; Lozier, M. Susan; Palter, Jaime B.; Lumpkin, Rick; Samelson, R.; Skyllingstad, Eric; Silverthorne, Katherine E.; Talley, Lynne D.; Thomas, Leif N. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-09)
    A major oceanographic field experiment is described, which is designed to observe, quantify, and understand the creation and dispersal of weakly stratified fluid known as “mode water” in the region of the Gulf Stream. ...
  • Effects of eddy vorticity forcing on the mean state of the Kuroshio Extension 

    Delman, Andrew S.; McClean, Julie L.; Sprintall, Janet; Talley, Lynne D.; Yulaeva, Elena; Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-05)
    Eddy–mean flow interactions along the Kuroshio Extension (KE) jet are investigated using a vorticity budget of a high-resolution ocean model simulation, averaged over a 13-yr period. The simulation explicitly resolves ...
  • Global patterns of diapycnal mixing from measurements of the turbulent dissipation rate 

    Waterhouse, Amy F.; MacKinnon, Jennifer A.; Nash, Jonathan D.; Alford, Matthew H.; Kunze, Eric; Simmons, Harper L.; Polzin, Kurt L.; St. Laurent, Louis C.; Sun, Oliver M. T.; Pinkel, Robert; Talley, Lynne D.; Whalen, Caitlin B.; Huussen, Tycho N.; Carter, Glenn S.; Fer, Ilker; Waterman, Stephanie N.; Naveira Garabato, Alberto C.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Lee, Craig M. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-07)
    The authors present inferences of diapycnal diffusivity from a compilation of over 5200 microstructure profiles. As microstructure observations are sparse, these are supplemented with indirect measurements of mixing obtained ...
  • The role of air-sea fluxes in Subantarctic Mode Water formation 

    Holte, James W.; Talley, Lynne D.; Chereskin, Teresa K.; Sloyan, Bernadette M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-03-29)
    Two hydrographic surveys and a one-dimensional mixed layer model are used to assess the role of air-sea fluxes in forming deep Subantarctic Mode Water (SAMW) mixed layers in the southeast Pacific Ocean. Forty-two SAMW mixed ...
  • Subantarctic mode water in the southeast Pacific : effect of exchange across the Subantarctic Front 

    Holte, James W.; Talley, Lynne D.; Chereskin, Teresa K.; Sloyan, Bernadette M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-23)
    This study considered cross-frontal exchange as a possible mechanism for the observed along-front freshening and cooling between the 27.0 and 27.3 kg m − 3 isopycnals north of the Subantarctic Front (SAF) in the southeast ...
  • The WOCE–era 3–D Pacific Ocean circulation and heat budget 

    Macdonald, Alison M.; Mecking, Sabine; Toole, John M.; Robbins, Paul E.; Johnson, Gregory C.; Wijffels, Susan E.; Talley, Lynne D.; Cook, Margaret F. (2009-08-17)
    To address questions concerning the intensity and spatial structure of the 3–dimensional circulation within the Pacific Ocean and the associated advective and diffusive property flux divergences, data from approximately ...
