    • How does Labrador Sea Water enter the deep western boundary current? 

      Palter, Jaime B.; Lozier, M. Susan; Lavender, Kara L. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-05)
      Labrador Sea Water (LSW), a dense water mass formed by convection in the subpolar North Atlantic, is an important constituent of the meridional overturning circulation. Understanding how the water mass enters the deep ...
    • How entraining density currents influence the stratification in a one-dimensional ocean basin 

      Wåhlin, A. K.; Cenedese, Claudia (2005-11-03)
      The sensitivity of the basin-scale ocean stratification to the vertical distribution of plume entrainment is being analyzed. A large ocean basin supplied by dense water from an adjoining marginal sea is considered. The ...
    • How is the ocean filled? 

      Gebbie, Geoffrey A.; Huybers, Peter (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03-23)
      The ocean surface rapidly exchanges heat, freshwater, and gases with the atmosphere, but once water sinks into the ocean interior, the inherited properties of seawater are closely conserved. Previous water-mass decompositions ...
    • How much did Glacial North Atlantic Water shoal? 

      Gebbie, Geoffrey A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-03-13)
      Observations of δ13C and Cd/Ca from benthic foraminifera have been interpreted to reflect a shoaling of northern source waters by about 1000 m during the Last Glacial Maximum, with the degree of shoaling being significant ...

      The High Resolution Profiler II (HRP-II), a unique, autonomous untethered, deep-ocean capable, profiling vehicle was designed and developed at WHOI during 2002-2003. During a vertical profile, it measures and records ...
    • A hybrid particle–ensemble Kalman filter for Lagrangian data assimilation 

      Slivinski, Laura; Spiller, Elaine; Apte, Amit; Sandstede, Bjorn (American Meteorological Society, 2015-01)
      Lagrangian measurements from passive ocean instruments provide a useful source of data for estimating and forecasting the ocean’s state (velocity field, salinity field, etc.). However, trajectories from these instruments ...
    • Hydraulic adjustment to an obstacle in a rotating channel 

      Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Chassignet, Eric P. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-09-08)
      In order to gain insight into the hydraulics of rotating-channel flow, a set of initial-value problems analogous to Long's towing experiments is considered. Specifically, we calculate the adjustment caused by the introduction ...
    • Hydraulic criticality of the exchange flow through the Strait of Gibraltar 

      Sannino, Gianmaria; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Carillo, Adriana (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
      The hydraulic state of the exchange circulation through the Strait of Gibraltar is defined using a recently developed critical condition that accounts for cross-channel variations in layer thickness and velocity, applied ...
    • Hydraulics and instabilities of quasi-geostrophic zonal flows 

      Ralph, Elise A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
      The thesis addresses the applicability of traditional hydraulic theory to an unstable, mid-latitude jet where the only wave present is the Rossby wave modified by shear. While others (Armi 1989, Pratt 1989, Haynes et ...

      In late June, 1990, a 17-day cruise aboard R/V ENDEAVOR was undertaken to investigate the manner in which the Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC) crosses under the Gulf Stream. Forty-four CTD casts, comprising five ...
    • Hydrographic data from Endeavor 223 : formation and spreading of the shallow component of the North Atlantic deep western boundary current
