  • A 2 1/2 dimensional thermohaline circulation model with boundary mixing 

    Ru, Hua (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-04)
    A simple quasi-two dimensional dynamical model of Thermohaline circulation (THC) is developed, assuming that the mixing only occurs near western and eastern boundary layers. When the surface density is prescribed, the ...
  • 2,000-year-long temperature and hydrology reconstructions from the Indo-Pacific warm pool 

    Oppo, Delia W.; Rosenthal, Yair; Linsley, Braddock K. (2009-06-15)
    Northern Hemisphere surface temperature reconstructions suggest that the late twentieth century was warmer than any other time during the past 500 years and possibly any time during the past 1,300 years. These ...
