1989 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : general circulation of the oceans
MetadataShow full item record
The success of this summer's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Program owes much to Myrl Hendershott's excellent and engaging survey of the Oceans General Circulation, including recent developments In the Theory of Recirculation Gyres and Thermocline Ventilation.

Meyer, Amelie; Sloyan, Bernadette M.; Polzin, Kurt L.; Phillips, Helen E.; Bindoff, Nathaniel L. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-04)A key remaining challenge in oceanography is the understanding and parameterization of small-scale mixing. Evidence suggests that topographic features play a significant role in enhancing mixing in the Southern Ocean. This ...
Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)This is the first volume of a "final report" that summarizes, often in a speculative vein, what I have learned over the past 35 years or so about large-scale, low-frequency ocean currents, primarily with support from the ...

Susan (American Meteorological Society, 2011-05)Motivated by discrepancies between Eulerian transport estimates and the behavior of Lagrangian surface drifters, near-surface transport pathways and processes in the North Atlantic are studied using a combination of data, ...
