  • An equatorial ocean bottleneck in global climate models 

    Karnauskas, Kristopher B.; Johnson, Gregory C.; Murtugudde, Raghu (American Meteorological Society, 2012-01-01)
    The Equatorial Undercurrent (EUC) is a major component of the tropical Pacific Ocean circulation. EUC velocity in most global climate models is sluggish relative to observations. Insufficient ocean resolution slows the EUC ...
  • North Pacific carbon cycle response to climate variability on seasonal to decadal timescales 

    McKinley, Galen A.; Takahashi, Taro; Buitenhuis, Erik T.; Chai, Fei; Christian, James R.; Doney, Scott C.; Jiang, Mingshun; Lindsay, Keith; Moore, J. Keith; Le Quere, Corinne; Lima, Ivan D.; Murtugudde, Raghu; Shi, L.; Wetzel, P. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-07-04)
    Climate variability drives significant changes in the physical state of the North Pacific, and thus there may be important impacts of climate variability on the upper ocean carbon balance across the basin. We address this ...
  • Observing the Galápagos–EUC interaction : insights and challenges 

    Karnauskas, Kristopher B.; Murtugudde, Raghu; Busalacchi, Antonio J. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-12)
    Although sustained observations yield a description of the mean equatorial current system from the western Pacific to the eastern terminus of the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) array, a comprehensive observational dataset ...
