Interannual sea level variability in the western North Atlantic : regional forcing and remote response
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-11-20)
Annually averaged sea level (1970–2012) measured by tide gauges along the North American east coast is remarkably coherent over a 1700 km swath from Nova Scotia to North Carolina. Satellite altimetry (1993–2011) shows that ...
The similarity solution for turbulent mixing of two-layer stratified fluid
Experiments are reviewed in which a two-layer salt-stratified tank of water was mixed by turbulence. The density profile began as a single step and evolved to a smooth mixed profile. The turbulence was generated by many ...

Shoaling of nonlinear internal waves in Massachusetts Bay
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-08-19)
The shoaling of the nonlinear internal tide in Massachusetts Bay is studied with a fully nonlinear and nonhydrostatic model. The results are compared with current and temperature observations obtained during the August ...
Calibration and application of B/Ca, Cd/Ca, and δ11B in Neogloboquadrina pachyderma (sinistral) to constrain CO2 uptake in the subpolar North Atlantic during the last deglaciation
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-05-30)
The North Atlantic and Norwegian Sea are prominent sinks of atmospheric CO2 today, but their roles in the past remain poorly constrained. In this study, we attempt to use B/Ca and δ11B ratios in the planktonic foraminifera ...
Science under sail : ocean science education program combines traditional vessels with state-of-the-art technology
(Oceanography Society, 2004-09)
Sea Education Association (SEA), located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, offers introductory oceanographic instruction in the classroom and hands-on research training at sea to create a unique educational experience for ...
Universal structure of mesoscale eddies in the ocean
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-30)
Mesoscale eddies dominate oceanic kinetic energy at sub-inertial frequencies. Their three-dimensional structure has, however, remained obscure, hindering better understanding of eddy dynamics. Here by applying the composite ...
Airborne-radar and ice-core observations of annual snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica confirm the spatiotemporal variability of global and regional atmospheric models
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-26)
We use an airborne-radar method, verified with ice-core accumulation records, to determine the spatiotemporal variations of snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica between 1980 and 2009. We also present a ...
Sulfide geochronology along the Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-08)
Forty-nine hydrothermal sulfide-sulfate rock samples from the Endeavour Segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, northeastern Pacific Ocean, were dated by measuring the decay of 226Ra (half-life of 1600 years) in hydrothermal ...
Sound Cut, Record Number 61027hi1
