  • 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 ...
  • The LatMix summer campaign : submesoscale stirring in the upper ocean 

    Shcherbina, Andrey Y.; Sundermeyer, Miles A.; Kunze, Eric; D’Asaro, Eric; Badin, Gualtiero; Birch, Daniel; Brunner-Suzuki, Anne-Marie E. G.; Callies, Joern; Cervantes, Brandy T. Kuebel; Claret, Mariona; Concannon, Brian; Early, Jeffrey; Ferrari, Raffaele; Goodman, Louis; Harcourt, Ramsey R.; Klymak, Jody M.; Lee, Craig M.; Lelong, M.-Pascale; Levine, Murray D.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Mahadevan, Amala; McWilliams, James C.; Molemaker, M. Jeroen; Mukherjee, Sonaljit; Nash, Jonathan D.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Pierce, Stephen D.; Ramachandran, Sanjiv; Samelson, Roger M.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Shearman, R. Kipp; Skyllingstad, Eric D.; Smith, K. Shafer; Tandon, Amit; Taylor, John R.; Terray, Eugene A.; Thomas, Leif N.; Ledwell, James R. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-08)
    Lateral stirring is a basic oceanographic phenomenon affecting the distribution of physical, chemical, and biological fields. Eddy stirring at scales on the order of 100 km (the mesoscale) is fairly well understood and ...
  • Near-inertial kinetic energy budget of the mixed layer and shear evolution in the transition layer in the Arabian Sea during the monsoons 

    Majumder, Sudip; Tandon, Amit; Rudnick, Daniel L.; Farrar, J. Thomas (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-09-26)
    We present the horizontal kinetic energy (KE) balance of near-inertial currents in the mixed layer and explain shear evolution in the transition layer using observations from a mooring at 15.26° N in the Arabian Sea during ...
  • Spontaneous generation of near-inertial waves by the Kuroshio Front 

    Nagai, Takeyoshi; Tandon, Amit; Kunze, Eric; Mahadevan, Amala (American Meteorological Society, 2015-09)
    While near-inertial waves are known to be generated by atmospheric storms, recent observations in the Kuroshio Front find intense near-inertial internal-wave shear along sloping isopycnals, even during calm weather. Recent ...
