    • Air-sea CO2 exchange in the equatorial Pacific 

      McGillis, Wade R.; Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Ware, Jonathan D.; McKenna, Sean P.; Terray, Eugene A.; Hare, Jeffrey E.; Fairall, Christopher W.; Drennan, William M.; Donelan, Mark A.; DeGrandpre, Michael D.; Wanninkhof, Rik; Feely, Richard A. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-08-28)
      GasEx-2001, a 15-day air-sea carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange study conducted in the equatorial Pacific, used a combination of ships, buoys, and drifters equipped with ocean and atmospheric sensors to assess variability and ...
    • Drift and mixing under the ocean surface : a coherent one-dimensional description with application to unstratified conditions 

      Rascle, Nicolas; Ardhuin, Fabrice; Terray, Eugene A. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-24)
      Waves have many effects on near-surface dynamics: Breaking waves enhance mixing, waves are associated with a Lagrangian mean drift (the Stokes drift), waves act on the mean flow by creating Langmuir circulations and a ...
    • 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 ...
    • Measurements of momentum and heat transfer across the air–sea interface 

      Gerbi, Gregory P.; Trowbridge, John H.; Edson, James B.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Terray, Eugene A.; Fredericks, Janet J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-05)
      This study makes direct measurements of turbulent fluxes in the mixed layer in order to close heat and momentum budgets across the air–sea interface and to assess the ability of rigid-boundary turbulence models to predict ...
    • Observations and numerical simulations of large-eddy circulation in the ocean surface mixed layer 

      Sundermeyer, Miles A.; Skyllingstad, Eric D.; Ledwell, James R.; Concannon, Brian; Terray, Eugene A.; Birch, Daniel; Pierce, Stephen D.; Cervantes, Brandy T. Kuebel (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-06)
      Two near-surface dye releases were mapped on scales of minutes to hours temporally, meters to order 1 km horizontally, and 1–20 m vertically using a scanning, depth-resolving airborne lidar. In both cases, dye evolved into ...
    • Observations of turbulence in the ocean surface boundary layer : energetics and transport 

      Gerbi, Gregory P.; Trowbridge, John H.; Terray, Eugene A.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Kukulka, Tobias (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
      Observations of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) dynamics in the ocean surface boundary layer are presented here and compared with results from previous observational, numerical, and analytic studies. As in previous studies, ...
    • Spatial variability of bottom turbulence over a linear sand ridge mooring deployment and AUTOSUB AUV survey cruise report R/V RRS Challenger, cruise number 146 Broken Bank, North Sea, U.K., 17 – 28 August 1999 cruise report 

      Voulgaris, George; Trowbridge, John H.; Terray, Eugene A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-08)
      Two successful AUTOSUB deployments were carried out during August 1999 as part of the AUTOSUB Thematic Program project titled “Spatial Variability of Bottom Turbulence over a Linear Sand Ridge,” funded by the Natural ...
    • Three-dimensional mapping of fluorescent dye using a scanning, depth-resolving airborne lidar 

      Sundermeyer, Miles A.; Terray, Eugene A.; Ledwell, James R.; Cunningham, A. G.; LaRocque, P. E.; Banic, J.; Lillycrop, W. J. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-06)
      Results are presented from a pilot study using a fluorescent dye tracer imaged by airborne lidar in the ocean surface layer on spatial scales of meters to kilometers and temporal scales of minutes to hours. The lidar used ...
    • Turbulent transport in the outer region of rough-wall open-channel flows : the contribution of large coherent shear stress structures (LC3S) 

      Hurther, D.; Lemmin, U.; Terray, Eugene A. (Cambridge University Press, 2007-02-15)
      Acoustic Doppler velocity profiler (ADVP) measurements of instantaneous three-dimensional velocity profiles over the entire turbulent boundary layer height, δ, of rough-bed open-channel flows at moderate Reynolds numbers ...
