    • Eddy-induced particle dispersion in the near-surface North Atlantic 

      Rypina, Irina I.; Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Berloff, Pavel S.; Pratt, Lawrence J. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-12)
      This study investigates the anisotropic properties of the eddy-induced material transport in the near-surface North Atlantic from two independent datasets, one simulated from the sea surface height altimetry and one derived ...
    • Estimates of North Atlantic ventilation and mode water formation for winters 2002–06 

      Trossman, David S.; Thompson, LuAnne; Kelly, Kathryn A.; Kwon, Young-Oh (American Meteorological Society, 2009-10)
      Lagrangian estimates for ventilation rates in the Gulf Stream Extension using Argo and World Ocean Circulation Experiment/Atlantic Climate and Circulation Experiment (WOCE/ACCE) float data, scatterometer (QuikSCAT) wind ...
    • Eulerian and Lagrangian correspondence of high-frequency radar and surface drifter data : effects of radar resolution and flow components 

      Rypina, Irina I.; Kirincich, Anthony R.; Limeburner, Richard; Udovydchenkov, Ilya A. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-04)
      This study investigated the correspondence between the near-surface drifters from a mass drifter deployment near Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, and the surface current observations from a network of three high-resolution, ...
    • The fate of North Atlantic Subtropical Mode Water in the FLAME model 

      Gary, Stefan F.; Lozier, M. Susan; Kwon, Young-Oh; Park, Jong Jin (American Meteorological Society, 2014-05)
      North Atlantic Subtropical Mode Water, also known as Eighteen Degree Water (EDW), has the potential to store heat anomalies through its seasonal cycle: the water mass is in contact with the atmosphere in winter, isolated ...
    • Investigating the eddy diffusivity concept in the coastal ocean 

      Rypina, Irina I.; Kirincich, Anthony R.; Lentz, Steven; Sundermeyer, Miles A. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-06-29)
      This paper aims to test the validity, utility, and limitations of the lateral eddy diffusivity concept in a coastal environment through analyzing data from coupled drifter and dye releases within the footprint of a ...
    • Near-surface transport pathways in the north Atlantic Ocean : looking for throughput from the subtropical to the subpolar gyre 

      Rypina, Irina I.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Lozier, M. Susan (American Meteorological Society, 2011-05)
      Motivated by discrepancies between Eulerian transport estimates and the behavior of Lagrangian surface drifters, near-surface transport pathways and processes in the North Atlantic are studied using a combination of data, ...
    • Properties and origins of the anisotropic eddy-induced transport in the North Atlantic 

      Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Rypina, Irina I.; Berloff, Pavel S. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-03)
      This study examines anisotropic transport properties of the eddying North Atlantic flow, using an idealized model of the double-gyre oceanic circulation and altimetry-derived velocities. The material transport by the ...
    • Resource allocation for Lagrangian tracking 

      Jones, Benjamin T.; Solow, Andrew; Ji, Rubao (American Meteorological Society, 2016-06-02)
      Accurate estimation of the transport probabilities among regions in the ocean provides valuable information for understanding plankton transport, the spread of pollutants, and the movement of water masses. Individual-based ...
