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 ...

(American Meteorological Society, 2012-03-01)The ocean component of the Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) is described, and its solutions from the twentieth-century (20C) simulations are documented in comparison with observations and those of CCSM3. ...
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 ...
