  • On the world ocean circulation. Volume I, some global features/North Atlantic circulation 

    Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
    This is the first volume of a "final report" that summarizes, often in a speculative vein, what I have learned over the past 35 years or so about large-scale, low-frequency ocean currents, primarily with support from the ...
  • On the world ocean circulation. Volume II, the Pacific and Indian Oceans/a global update 

    Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-12)
    This is the second and final volume of a report that describes some of my investigations over the last 35 years or so into low-frequency ocean current structures, a topic which I will call the World Ocean Circulation ...
  • SOFAR float trajectories from an experiment to measure the Atlantic cross equatorial flow (1989-1990) 

    Richardson, Philip L.; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Wooding, Christine M.; Schmitz, William J.; Price, James F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-08)
    Neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats at nominal depths of 800, 1800, and 3300 m were tracked for 21 months in the vicinity of western boundary currents near 6N and at several sites in the Atlantic near 11N and along the equator. ...
  • SOFAR float trajectories in the tropical Atlantic 1989-1992 

    Richardson, Philip L.; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Wooding, Christine M.; Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    Neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats at nominal depths of 800 m, 1800 m, and 3300 m were tracked acoustically for 3.7 years in the vicinity of the western boundary and the equator of the Atlantic Ocean. Trajectories and summaries ...
