  • Coastal trapped waves, alongshore pressure gradients, and the California Undercurrent 

    Connolly, Thomas P.; Hickey, Barbara M.; Shulman, Igor; Thomson, Richard E. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-01)
    The California Undercurrent (CUC), a poleward-flowing feature over the continental slope, is a key transport pathway along the west coast of North America and an important component of regional upwelling dynamics. This ...
  • Cruise summaries of Oceanus cruises 205, leg 8, and 216 

    Joyce, Terrence M.; Stalcup, Marvel C.; Barbour, R. Lorraine; Dunworth, Jane A.; Schubert, David M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-04)
    A study of the upper ocean thermal and density structure in the northwestern Atlantic in 1989 compared temperature and density measurements made with Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT) and Conductivity-Temperature-Depth ...
  • Dynamics of N removal over annual time periods in a suburban river network 

    Wollheim, Wilfred M.; Peterson, Bruce J.; Thomas, Suzanne M.; Hopkinson, Charles S.; Vorosmarty, Charles J. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-09-23)
    River systems are dynamic, highly connected water transfer networks that integrate a wide range of physical and biological processes. We used a river network nitrogen (N) removal model with daily temporal resolution to ...
  • Freshwater content variability in the Arctic Ocean 

    Hakkinen, Sirpa M. A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-31)
    Arctic Ocean model simulations have revealed that the Arctic Ocean has a basin-wide oscillation with cyclonic and anticyclonic circulation anomalies (Arctic Ocean Oscillation (AOO)) that has a prominent decadal variability ...
  • On the observability of oceanic gyres 

    Marchal, Olivier (American Meteorological Society, 2014-09)
    This study examines the observability of a stratified ocean in a square flat basin on a midlatitude beta plane. Here, “observability” means the ability to establish, in a finite interval of time, the time-dependent ocean ...
  • Recent changes in the Labrador Sea Water within the Deep Western Boundary Current southeast of Cape Cod 

    Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M.; Toole, John M. (2011-07-20)
    Water properties measured by the central mooring in the Line W mooring array southeast of Cape Cod document a large character shift during the period of November 2001 to April 2008. The observed temperature, salinity and ...
  • Seasonal and interannual variability of downwelling in the Beaufort Sea 

    Yang, Jiayan (American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-11)
    In this paper, we examine the seasonal and interannual to decadal variability of oceanic downwelling in the Beaufort Sea. The surface wind stress is the primary driver for variability in the upper Arctic Ocean and sea ice. ...
  • Two years of observations of warm-core anticyclones in the Labrador Sea and their seasonal cycle in heat and salt stratification 

    de Jong, Marieke F.; Bower, Amy S.; Furey, Heather H. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-02)
    Between 25 September 2007 and 28 September 2009, a heavily instrumented mooring was deployed in the Labrador Sea, offshore of the location where warm-core, anticyclonic Irminger rings are formed. The 2-year time series ...
  • Variability in the Deep Western Boundary Current : local versus remote forcing 

    Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M.; Toole, John M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12-22)
    Horizontal velocity, temperature and salinity measurements from the Line W array for the period 2004–2008 show large changes in the water mass structure and circulation of the Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC). Fluctuations ...
  • Variability in the Slope Water and its relation to the Gulf Stream path 

    Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-02-06)
    Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and Sea Surface Height (SSH) data for 1993–2007 for the North Atlantic are combined with hydrographic data at 69W to investigate the relation between the Gulf Stream (GS) position and the Slope ...
  • Western Arctic Ocean temperature variability during the last 8000 years 

    Farmer, Jesse R.; Cronin, Thomas M.; de Vernal, Anne; Dwyer, Gary S.; Keigwin, Lloyd D.; Thunell, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-12-17)
    We reconstructed subsurface (∼200–400 m) ocean temperature and sea-ice cover in the Canada Basin, western Arctic Ocean from foraminiferal δ18O, ostracode Mg/Ca ratios, and dinocyst assemblages from two sediment core records ...
