  • On the calculation of wind stress curl over open ocean areas from synoptic meteorological data with application to time dependent ocean circulation 

    Welch, Christopher Slocombe (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-02)
    The method used by N. P. Fofonoff for estimating wind stress curl from surface atmospheric pressure maps is developed for use with the National Meterological Center analysis grid. A formula is developed relating the wind ...
  • On the dynamics of shallow water currents in Massachusetts Bay and on the New England continental shelf 

    Butman, Bradford (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-04)
    Massachusetts Bay is a coastal Bay 100 km long and 40 km wide located in the western Gulf of Maine. The Bay is closed by land to the north, west and south, but is open to the Gulf to the east; the opening is partially ...
  • On the formation and structure of downdrafts in cumulus clouds 

    Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1954-08)
