  • Direct observations of microscale turbulence and thermohaline structure in the Kuroshio Front 

    Nagai, Takeyoshi; Tandon, Amit; Yamazaki, Hidekatsu; Doubell, Mark J.; Gallager, Scott M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-08-09)
    Direct observations of microstructure near the Kuroshio Front were conducted in August 2008 and October 2009. These show negative potential vorticity (PV) in the mixed layer south of the front, where directly measured ...
  • Influence of rain on air-sea gas exchange : lessons from a model ocean 

    Ho, David T.; Zappa, Christopher J.; McGillis, Wade R.; Bliven, Larry F.; Ward, Brian; Dacey, John W. H.; Schlosser, Peter; Hendricks, Melissa B. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-07-01)
    Rain has been shown to significantly enhance the rate of air-water gas exchange in fresh water environments, and the mechanism behind this enhancement has been studied in laboratory experiments. In the ocean, the effects ...
  • Rain-induced turbulence and air-sea gas transfer 

    Zappa, Christopher J.; Ho, David T.; McGillis, Wade R.; Banner, Michael L.; Dacey, John W. H.; Bliven, Larry F.; Ma, Barry; Nystuen, Jeffrey A. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-07-09)
    Results from a rain and gas exchange experiment (Bio2 RainX III) at the Biosphere 2 Center demonstrate that turbulence controls the enhancement of the air-sea gas transfer rate (or velocity) k during rainfall, even though ...
  • Upward swimming of competent oyster larvae Crassostrea virginica persists in highly turbulent flow as detected by PIV flow subtraction 

    Wheeler, Jeanette D.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Anderson, Erik J.; McGann, B.; Staats, P.; Wargula, Anna E.; Wilt, K.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Inter-Research, 2013-08-15)
    Investigating settlement responses in the transitory period between planktonic and benthic stages of invertebrates helps shape our understanding of larval dispersal and supply, as well as early adult survival. Turbulence ...
