      Huybers, Peter; Wunsch, Carl (2005-01-24)
      The timing of glacial/interglacial cycles at intervals of about 100,000 yr (100 kyr) is commonly attributed to control by Earth orbital configuration variations. This “pacemaker” hypothesis has inspired many models, variously ...

      Byun, Sang-Shin; Park, Jong Jin; Chang, Kyung-Il; Schmitt, Raymond W. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-01-15)
      Moored current observations in the southwestern East/Japan Sea of 16.5 months duration clearly captured two episodes of downward phase propagation (upward energy propagation) of near-inertial waves (NIWs). Time series of ...
    • Observation of very large and steep internal waves of elevation near the Massachusetts coast 

      Scotti, Alberto; Pineda, Jesus (American Geophysical Union, 2004-11-25)
      We report on near-bottom waves of elevation with amplitude nearly half the 25 m water column, very steep, and propagating into a sheared turbulent wave-guide. The waves contained trapped cores transporting parcels of water ...
    • Observational and model studies of the circulation in the Gulf of Tonkin, South China Sea 

      Ding, Yang; Chen, Changsheng; Beardsley, Robert C.; Bao, Xianwen; Shi, Maochong; Zhang, Yu; Lai, Zhigang; Li, Ruixiang; Lin, Huichan; Viet, Nguyen Trung (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-03)
      Moored current measurements were made at one mooring site in the northern Gulf of Tonkin for about 1 year during 1988–1989. Analyses were performed to examine characteristics and variability of tidal and subtidal flows. ...
    • Observational and theoretical studies of the dynamics of mantle plume–mid-ocean ridge interaction 

      Ito, Garrett T.; Lin, Jian; Graham, David W. (American Geophysical Union, 2003-11-20)
      Hot spot–mid-ocean ridge interactions cause many of the largest structural and chemical anomalies in Earth's ocean basins. Correlated geophysical and geochemical anomalies are widely explained by mantle plumes that deliver ...
