    Holte, James W.; Straneo, Fiamma; Farrar, J. Thomas; Weller, Robert A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-28)
    The surface layer of the southeast Pacific Ocean (SEP) requires an input of cold, fresh water to balance heat gain, and evaporation from air-sea fluxes. Models typically fail to reproduce the cool sea surface temperatures ...

    Between November 20 and December 10, 1994, studies of the deep mixing processes in the Romanche Fracture Zone (RFZ) of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge were conducted from the French research vessel N/O le Noroit. Oceanographers ...
  • High-frequency acoustic scattering from turbulent oceanic microstructure : the importance of density fluctuations 

    Lavery, Andone C.; Schmitt, Raymond W.; Stanton, Timothy K. (Acoustical Society of America, 2003-11)
    Acoustic scattering techniques provide a unique and powerful tool to remotely investigate the physical properties of the ocean interior over large spatial and temporal scales. With high-frequency acoustic scattering it is ...
  • High-latitude contribution to global variability of air–sea sensible heat flux 

    Song, Xiangzhou; Yu, Lisan (American Meteorological Society, 2012-05-15)
    The study examined global variability of air–sea sensible heat flux (SHF) from 1980 to 2009 and the large-scale atmospheric and ocean circulations that gave rise to this variability. The contribution of high-latitude ...
  • A high-resolution bathymetry map for the Marguerite Bay and adjacent west Antarctic Peninsula shelf for the Southern Ocean GLOBEC Program 

    Bolmer, S. Thompson; Beardsley, Robert C.; Pudsey, C.; Morris, P.; Wiebe, Peter H.; Hofmann, Eileen E.; Anderson, J.; Maldonado, A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-05)
    One objective of the U.S. Southern Ocean Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics (SO GLOBEC) program is to gain a better understanding of the sea floor bathymetry in the program study area. Much of Marguerite Bay and the ...
  • High-speed dynamic soaring 

    Richardson, Philip L. (B2Streamlines.com, 2012-04)
    Dynamic soaring uses the gradient of wind velocity (wind shear) to gain energy for energy-neutral flight. Recently, pilots of radiocontrolled gliders have exploited the wind shear associated with fast winds blowing over ...
