An ocean coupling potential intensity index for tropical cyclones
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-05-15)
Timely and accurate forecasts of tropical cyclones (TCs, i.e., hurricanes and typhoons) are of great importance for risk mitigation. Although in the past two decades there has been steady improvement in track prediction, ...
Nitrogen fixation in the South Atlantic Gyre and the Benguela Upwelling System
(American Geophysical Union, 2011-08-27)
Dinitrogen (N2) fixation is recognized as an important input of new nitrogen (N) to the open ocean gyres, contributing to the export of organic matter from surface waters. However, very little N2-fixation research has ...
Atmospheric carbon dioxide variability in the Community Earth System Model : evaluation and transient dynamics during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-07-01)
Changes in atmospheric CO2 variability during the twenty-first century may provide insight about ecosystem responses to climate change and have implications for the design of carbon monitoring programs. This paper describes ...
Dissolved strontium in the subterranean estuary- implications for the marine strontium isotope budget
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the ocean supplies Sr with less radiogenic 87Sr/86Sr than seawater, and thus constitutes an important term in the Sr isotope budget in the modern ocean. However, few data exist for ...
Common humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) sound types for passive acoustic monitoring
(Acoustical Society of America, 2011-01)
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are one of several baleen whale species in the Northwest Atlantic that coexist with vessel traffic and anthropogenic noise. Passive acoustic monitoring strategies can be used in ...
Crustal structure across the Costa Rican Volcanic Arc
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-29)
Island arcs are proposed to be essential building blocks for the crustal growth of continents; however, island arcs and continents are fundamentally different in bulk composition: mafic and felsic, respectively. The substrate ...

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 ...
Asymmetric tidal mixing due to the horizontal density gradient
(American Meteorological Society, 2008-02)
Stratification and turbulent mixing exhibit a flood–ebb tidal asymmetry in estuaries and continental shelf regions affected by horizontal density gradients. The authors use a large-eddy simulation (LES) model to investigate ...
Development and evaluation of electromechanical cables for deep sea buoy applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
Electromechanical (E/M cables have been developed in order to satisfy the growing need for real time data telemetry from oceanographic moorings. Several E/M cable designs have been implemented with the cooperation of ...
