  • Eddy dynamics of ß plumes 

    Kida, Shinichiro (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-09)
    The importance of eddies and nonlinearities in ß-plume dynamics in the deep ocean was investigated using reduced gravity models of the deep ocean forced by a small region of cross isopycnal transport in the interior. The ...
  • Overflows and upper ocean interaction : a mechanism for the Azores Current 

    Kida, Shinichiro (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    The oceanic response to overflows is explored using a two-layer isopycnal model. Overflows are a major source of the dense water of the global deep ocean, originating from only a few marginal seas. They enter the open ...
