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.

Chechelnitsky, Michael Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-06)Data assimilation methods, such as the Kalman filter, are routinely used in oceanography. The statistics of the model and measurement errors need to be specified a priori. In this study we address the problem of estimating ...
Using the Helmholtz decomposition to define the Indian Ocean meridional overturning streamfunction Han, Lei; Huang, Rui Xin (American Meteorological Society, 2020-03-02)The zonally integrated flow in a basin can be separated into the divergent/nondivergent parts, and a uniquely defined meridional overturning circulation (MOC) can be calculated. For a basin with significant volume exchange ...
