  • Comparison study of SEASAT scatterometer and conventional wind fields 

    Holderied, Kristine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-09)
    A demonstrated need exists for better wind field information over the open ocean, especially as a forcing function for ocean circulation models. Microwave scatterometry, as a means of remotely sensing surface wind ...
  • The feasibility of sodar wind profile measurements from an oceanographic buoy 

    Berg, Allison M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    This thesis explores the feasibility of making wind speed measurements from an oceanographic buoy using a Doppler sodar. In the fall of 2005, we deployed a Scintec SFAS sodar on an ASIS buoy. Roughly one week of buoy ...
  • The relationship between microscales and wind-wave spectral development 

    Dorman, Craig E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-10)
    The objective of this study was to describe the mechanics of wind wave generation and spectral development. Intermittency, high frequency microstructure in wind and wave fields, and strong nonlinear coupling involving a ...
  • Subtidal cross-shelf circulation on the Northern California shelf 

    Dever, Edward P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-06)
    Moored time series from the Coastal Ocean Dynamics Experiment (CODE), Shelf Mixed Layer Experiment (SMILE), Sediment Transport Events over the Shelf and Slope (STRESS) study, and Northern California Coastal Circulation ...
  • Wind-driven circulation on a shallow, stratified shelf 

    Austin, Jay A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-08)
    Data from the Coastal Ocean Processes Inner Shelf Study are analyzed to determine atmospheric forcing characteristics and the heat balance of the inner shelf, and are used as motivation for a numerical study of inner ...
