      Recent observations of surface meteorology and exchanges of heat, freshwater, and momentum between the ocean and the atmosphere in the Bay of Bengal are presented. These observations characterize air-sea interaction at ...
    • Algorithms for computation of fundamental properties of seawater 

      Fofonoff, Nick P.; Millard, Robert C. (Unesco, 1983)
      Algorithms for computation of fundamental properties of seawater, based on the practical salinity scale (PSS-78) and the international equation of state for seawater (EOS-80), are compiled in the present report for ...
    • An all-thermistor pyrgeometer 

      Payne, Richard E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-12)
      The design and testing of an all-thermistor (no thermopile) pyrgeometer (LWT) is descrbed. After calibration by comparison with a Kipp & Zonen CG4, 9.2 months of data show mean differences of order 1-2 W m-2 with standard ...
    • Along-shelf current variability on the Catalan inner-shelf (NW Mediterranean) 

      Grifoll, Manel; Aretxabaleta, Alfredo L.; Espino, Manuel; Warner, John C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-22)
      We examine the circulation over the inner-shelf of the Catalan Sea using observations of currents obtained from three Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (two at 24 m and one at 50 m) during March–April 2011. The along-shelf ...
    • Altimeter analysis of ocean currents 

      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 ...
    • Altimeter processing tools for analyzing mesoscale ocean features 

      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 ...
    • Analysis and interpretation of tidal currents in the coastal boundary layer 

      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 ...
