  • Laboratory experiments and observations of cyclonic and anticyclonic eddies impinging on an island 

    Andres, Magdalena; Cenedese, Claudia (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-02-13)
    Laboratory experiments are conducted to investigate the interactions of self-propagating barotropic cyclones and baroclinic anticyclones with an island. Results are interpreted in the context of observations around Okinawa ...
  • Laboratory experiments on mesoscale vortices colliding with an island chain 

    Tanabe, Aya; Cenedese, Claudia (American Geophysical Union, 2008-04-17)
    The present laboratory study investigates the behavior of a self-propagating barotropic cyclonic vortex colliding perpendicularly with aligned circular cylinders and determines the condition for a vortex to bifurcate and ...
  • Laboratory experiments on mesoscale vortices interacting with two islands 

    Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia; Fratantoni, David M. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-30)
    The present study investigates the interaction between a self-propagating cyclonic vortex with two right vertical cylinders and determines the conditions for a vortex to bifurcate into two or more vortices. As in previous ...
  • Large-scale, realistic laboratory modeling of M2 internal tide generation at the Luzon Strait 

    Mercier, Matthieu J.; Gostiaux, Louis; Helfrich, Karl R.; Sommeria, Joel; Viboud, Samuel; Didelle, Henri; Ghaemsaidi, Sasan J.; Dauxois, Thierry; Peacock, Thomas (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-11-04)
    The complex double-ridge system in the Luzon Strait in the South China Sea (SCS) is one of the strongest sources of internal tides in the oceans, associated with which are some of the largest amplitude internal solitary ...
  • Olivine friction at the base of oceanic seismogenic zones 

    Boettcher, Margaret S.; Hirth, Greg; Evans, Brian (American Geophysical Union, 2007-01-31)
    We investigate the strength and frictional behavior of olivine aggregates at temperatures and effective confining pressures similar to those at the base of the seismogenic zone on a typical ridge transform fault. Triaxial ...
