  • Waterman, Stephanie N.; Hogg, Nelson G.; Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
    The authors use data collected by a line of tall current meter moorings deployed across the axis of the Kuroshio Extension (KE) jet at the location of maximum time-mean eddy kinetic energy to characterize the mean jet ...
  • Qiu, Bo; Chen, Shuiming; Hacker, Peter; Hogg, Nelson G.; Jayne, Steven R.; Sasaki, Hideharu (American Meteorological Society, 2008-08)
    Middepth, time-mean circulation in the western North Pacific Ocean (28°–45°N, 140°–165°E) is investigated using drift information from the profiling floats deployed in the Kuroshio Extension System Study (KESS) and the ...
  • Berloff, Pavel S.; Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    Multiple alternating zonal jets observed in the ocean are studied with an idealized quasigeostrophic zonal-channel model, with the supercritical, zonal background flow imposed. Both eastward and westward background flows ...
  • Berloff, Pavel S.; Dewar, William K.; Kravtsov, Sergey K.; McWilliams, James C. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-05)
    The role of mesoscale oceanic eddies is analyzed in a quasigeostrophic coupled ocean–atmosphere model operating at a large Reynolds number. The model dynamics are characterized by decadal variability that involves nonlinear ...
  • Wells, Mathew; Cenedese, Claudia; Caulfield, C. P. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-12)
    The authors explore the theoretical and empirical relationship between the nonlocal quantities of the entrainment ratio E, the appropriately depth- and time-averaged flux coefficient Γ, and the bulk Froude number Fro in ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Berloff, Pavel S.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2009-06)
    Multiple zonal jets are observed in satellite data–based estimates of oceanic velocities, float measurements, and high-resolution numerical simulations of the ocean circulation. This study makes a step toward understanding ...
  • Spall, Michael A.; Pickart, Robert S.; Fratantoni, Paula S.; Plueddemann, Albert J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-08)
    The mean structure and time-dependent behavior of the shelfbreak jet along the southern Beaufort Sea, and its ability to transport properties into the basin interior via eddies are explored using high-resolution mooring ...
  • Beron-Vera, F. J.; Brown, Michael G.; Olascoaga, M. J.; Rypina, Irina I.; Kocak, H.; Udovydchenkov, Ilya A. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
    The connection between transport barriers and potential vorticity (PV) barriers in PV-conserving flows is investigated with a focus on zonal jets in planetary atmospheres. A perturbed PV staircase model is used to illustrate ...
