Numerical investigations of seasonal and interannual variability of North Pacific Subtropical Mode Water and its implications for Pacific climate variability
(American Meteorological Society, 2011-06-01)
North Pacific Subtropical Mode Water (NPSTMW) is an essential feature of the North Pacific subtropical gyre imparting significant influence on regional SST evolution on seasonal and longer time scales and, as such, is an ...
Sex-biased dispersal and the speed of two-sex invasions
(University of Chicago, 2011-04-07)
Population models that combine demography and dispersal are important tools for forecasting the spatial spread of biological invasions. Current models describe the dynamics of only one sex (typically females). Such models ...
The role of season and salinity in influencing barnacle distributions in two adjacent coastal mangrove lagoons
(University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2011-07-01)
Barnacles are often abundant on roots and branches of mangrove trees in tidal channels and coastal lagoons of the Pacific coast of Panama. Yet, in some coastal lagoons, barnacles are absent. We investigated pre- and ...
Stirring and mixing : 1999 Program of Summer Study in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
The central theme of the 1999 GFD Program was the stirring, transport, reaction and mixing of passive and active tracers in turbulent, stratified, rotating fluids. The problem of mixing in fluids has applications in areas ...
2005 program of studies : fast times and fine scales
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-07)
The 2005 GFD program was entitled “Fast Times and Fine Scales” with a focus on asymptotic and stochastic modeling methods that exploit a physical scale separation of some kind. An extremely strong application pool resulted ...
Coastal ocean processes symposium : a tribute to William D. Grant, September 27 - September 30, 1998
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-05)
This report is a compilation of abstracts distrbuted at the Coastal Ocean Processes Symposium: A Tribute to Willam D. Grant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from September 27 - September 30, 1998.
1981 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : physics of convection
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-11)
Reexploring convection and its various transitions to chaotic behavior were the central themes of GFD 1981. Our principal lecturer, Dr. Edward A. Spiegel, provided both a rich historical picture and stimulating hours at ...
Effects of solar ultraviolet radiation on biogeochemical dynamics in aquatic environments : report of a workshop, Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, Massachusetts, October 23-26, 1989
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-01)
This workshop assembled a diverse group of experts, including atmospheric chemists and physicists and aquatic chemists, biochemists and biologists to address the possible ramifcations of changing Ultraviolet levels on ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : chaos
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-11)
The explosive growth of dynamieal systems theory in the past two decades stems in large part from the realization that it is applicable to many natural phenomena. Indeed, much o f the theoretical development has been sparked ...
Order and disorder in planetary dynamos : summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-05)
Our principal lecturer, Stephen Childress, can be seen emerging from the "magnetic cottage" he constructed to edify those of us who attended G.F.D. '87. His central theme was the kinematic properties of the "fast" ...
