  • Sloyan, Bernadette M. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-02-15)
    Net northward transport below γn > 28.1 kgm−3 (≈3200 m) into the Perth Basin of between 4.4 and 5.8 Sv is estimated from a year-long current meter mooring array between the Broken and Naturaliste Plateaus. Northward ...
  • 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 ...
  • Liu, Ling Ling; Huang, Rui Xin (American Meteorological Society, 2012-02-15)
    Ventilation, including subduction and obduction, for the global oceans was examined using Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) outputs. The global subduction rate averaged over the period from 1959 to 2006 is estimated ...
  • Palter, Jaime B.; Lozier, M. Susan; Lavender, Kara L. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-05)
    Labrador Sea Water (LSW), a dense water mass formed by convection in the subpolar North Atlantic, is an important constituent of the meridional overturning circulation. Understanding how the water mass enters the deep ...
  • Gebbie, Geoffrey A.; Huybers, Peter (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03-23)
    The ocean surface rapidly exchanges heat, freshwater, and gases with the atmosphere, but once water sinks into the ocean interior, the inherited properties of seawater are closely conserved. Previous water-mass decompositions ...
  • Ullgren, Jenny E.; Fer, Ilker; Darelius, Elin; Beaird, Nicholas (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-01-10)
    The narrow and deep Faroe Bank Channel (FBC) is an important pathway for cold, dense waters from the Nordic Seas to flow across the Iceland-Scotland ridge into the North Atlantic. The swift, turbulent FBC overflow is ...
  • Girton, James B.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Sutherland, David A.; Price, James F. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-12)
    The overflow of dense water from the Nordic Seas through the Faroe Bank Channel (FBC) has attributes suggesting hydraulic control—primarily an asymmetry across the sill reminiscent of flow over a dam. However, this aspect ...
  • Whitehead, John A.; Bradley, Keith (2005-01-14)
    A simplified box model of the cooling of a salt-stratified ocean has been constructed in the laboratory to test a theory that predicts multiple equilibria if certain conditions exist. An isothermal basin of water had a ...
  • Walsh, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-04)
    A pair of simple models representing the interaction of a continuously stratified f-plane quasigeostrophic lens with a uniform external shear flow is examined. The study is motivated by the desire to understand the ...
  • Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia (American Meteorological Society, 2010-08)
    Dense overflows entrain surrounding waters at specific locations, for example, sills and constrictions, but also along the descent over the continental slope. The amount of entrainment dictates the final properties of these ...
  • Mauritzen, Cecilie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-10)
    In this thesis, production of dense water that feeds the dense overflows across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge has been considered A new circulation scheme is developed which is consistent with the water masses, currents ...
  • Douglass, Elizabeth M.; Jayne, Steven R.; Peacock, Synte; Bryan, Frank O.; Maltrud, Mathew E. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-01)
    A climatologically forced high-resolution model is used to examine variability of subtropical mode water (STMW) in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Despite the use of annually repeating atmospheric forcing, significant ...
