  • Singh, Sandipa; Caruso, Michael J.; Kelly, Kathryn A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-07)
    Altimeter data from satellites are being used in an ongoing effort to obtain data sets with temporal as well as global coverage. This report describes the algorithms formulated and the programs written for the use of ...
  • Caruso, Michael J.; Sirkes, Ziv; Flament, Pierre J.; Baker, M. K. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    Satellite altimeters provide many opportunities for oceanographers to supplement their research with a valuable new data set. The recent GEOSAT exact repeat mission is the first of several altimeter missions proposed ...
  • May, Paul Wesley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-05)
    Concern with the impact of human activities on the coastal region of the world's oceans has elicited interest in the so-called "coastal boundary layer"-that band of water adjacent to the coast where ocean currents ...
  • Redfield, Alfred C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1950-07)
    The tides of coastal embayments derive their energy from the ocean tides rather than from the direct action of lunar and solar gravitational forces. They are considered to be part of co-oscilating systems in which the ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Berloff, Pavel S.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2009-12)
    This study analyzes anisotropic properties of the material transport by eddies and eddy-driven zonal jets in a general circulation model of the North Atlantic through the analysis of Lagrangian particle trajectories. ...
  • Yu, Lisan; Jin, Xiangze; Weller, Robert A. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-07-01)
    This study investigated the accuracy and physical representation of air–sea surface heat flux estimates for the Indian Ocean on annual, seasonal, and interannual time scales. Six heat flux products were analyzed, including ...
  • Sloyan, Bernadette M. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-02-15)
    Net northward transport below γn > 28.1 kgm−3 (≈3200 m) into the Perth Basin of between 4.4 and 5.8 Sv is estimated from a year-long current meter mooring array between the Broken and Naturaliste Plateaus. Northward ...
  • Chen, Changsheng; Malanotte-Rizzoli, Paola; Wei, Jun; Beardsley, Robert C.; Lai, Zhigang; Xue, Pengfei; Lyu, Sangjun; Xu, Qichun; Qi, Jianhua; Cowles, Geoffrey W. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-13)
    Twin experiments were made to compare the reduced rank Kalman filter (RRKF), ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), and ensemble square-root Kalman filter (EnSKF) for coastal ocean problems in three idealized regimes: a flat bottom ...
  • Zhang, Huai-Min (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-02)
    Inverse modeling activities in oceanography have recently been intensified, aided by the oncoming observational data stream of WOCE and the advance of computer power. However, interpretations of inverse model results ...
  • Fischer, Albert S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-09)
    The unusual twice-yearly cycle of mixed layer deepening and cooling driven by the monsoon is analyzed using a recently collected (1994-95) dataset of concurrent local air-sea fluxes and upper ocean dynamics from the ...
  • Baumgartner, Mark F.; Brink, Nancy J.; Ostrom, William M.; Trask, Richard P.; Weller, Robert A.; Dickey, Thomas D.; Marra, John (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-07)
    The Arabian Sea is characterized by strong, large-scale atmospheric forcing during the summer (southwest) and winter (northeast) monsoons. To investigate air-sea interactions related to this unique surface forcing, a ...
  • Trask, Richard P.; Way, Bryan S.; Ostrom, William M.; Allsup, Geoffrey P.; Weller, Robert A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-01)
    An array of surface and subsurface moorings were deployed in the Arabian Sea to provide high quality time series of local forcing and upper ocean currents, temperature, and conductivity in order to investigate the dynamics ...
  • Trask, Richard P.; Weller, Robert A.; Ostrom, William M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-07)
    This report describes in a general manner the work that took place during the R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 46 which was the mooring turnaround cruise for the moored array program. A detailed description of the WHOI ...
  • Ostrom, William M.; Way, Bryan S.; Weller, Robert A.; Ware, Jonathan D.; Trask, Richard P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    An array of surface and subsurface moorings was deployed in the Arabian Sea to provide high quality time series of local forcing and upper ocean currents, temperature, and conductivity in order to investigate the dynamics ...
  • Yang, Jiayan (American Meteorological Society, 2005-12)
    According to observations, the Arctic Ocean circulation beneath a shallow thermocline can be schematized by cyclonic rim currents along shelves and over ridges. In each deep basin, the circulation is also believed to be ...
  • Dukhovskoy, Dmitry S.; Johnson, Mark A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2004-02-05)
    This paper presents a mechanism of decadal variability in the Artic Ocean–GIN Sea (Greenland, Iceland and Norwegian Seas) atmosphere-ice-ocean system. We hypothesize that Arctic variability is regulated by heat and freshwater ...
  • Dukhovskoy, Dmitry S.; Johnson, Mark; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-20)
    This paper describes a simple “multibox” model of the Arctic atmosphere-ice-ocean system. The model consists of two major modules (an Arctic module and a Greenland Sea module) and several sub-modules. The Arctic module ...
  • Dukhovskoy, Dmitry S.; Johnson, Mark; Proshutinsky, Andrey (2006-06-20)
    A simple model of the Arctic Ocean and Greenland Sea, coupled to a thermodynamic sea ice model and an atmospheric model, has been used to study decadal variability of the Arctic ice-ocean-atmosphere climate system. The ...

Scott; Straneo, Fiamma; Steele, Michael; Woodgate, Rebecca; Yang, Daqing; Yoshikawa, Kenji; Zhang, Tingjun (American Geophysical Union, 2007-11-20)
    Dramatic changes have been observed in the Arctic over the last century. Many of these involve the storage and cycling of fresh water. On land, precipitation and river discharge, lake abundance and size, glacier area and ...
  • Sugimura, Peter Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)
    The mid-to-deep Arctic Ocean is generally characterized by a cyclonic circulation, contained along shelves and ridges. Here we analyze the general Arctic circulation using an idealized numerical model consisting of a ...
