  • Direct observations of microscale turbulence and thermohaline structure in the Kuroshio Front 

    Nagai, Takeyoshi; Tandon, Amit; Yamazaki, Hidekatsu; Doubell, Mark J.; Gallager, Scott M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-08-09)
    Direct observations of microstructure near the Kuroshio Front were conducted in August 2008 and October 2009. These show negative potential vorticity (PV) in the mixed layer south of the front, where directly measured ...
  • Diurnal restratification events in the southeast Pacific trade wind regime 

    Weller, Robert A.; Majumder, Sudip; Tandon, Amit (American Meteorological Society, 2014-09)
    This paper describes the occurrence of diurnal restratification events found in the southeast trade wind regime off northern Chile. This is a region where persistent marine stratus clouds are found and where there is a ...
  • Enhancement in vertical fluxes at a front by mesoscale-submesoscale coupling 

    Ramachandran, Sanjiv; Tandon, Amit; Mahadevan, Amala (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-12)
    Oceanic frontal instabilities are of importance for the vertical exchange of properties in the ocean. Submesoscale, O(1) Rossby number, dynamics are particularly relevant for inducing the vertical (and lateral) flux of ...
