  • Prytherch, John; Farrar, J. Thomas; Weller, Robert A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-09-13)
    An extensive data set is used to examine the dynamics of diurnal warming in the upper ocean. The data set comprises more than 4700 days of measurements at five sites in the tropics and subtropics, obtained from surface ...
  • Heinmiller, Robert H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-08)
    This report covers the techniques of deploying and recovering the moorings used by the Buoy Project at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. A brief description of the moorings and associated hardware is included. Deck ...
  • Moore, G. W. K.; Renfrew, I. A.; Pickart, Robert S. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-04-15)
    The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is one of the most important modes of variability in the global climate system and is characterized by a meridional dipole in the sea level pressure field, with centers of action near ...
  • Wortham, Cimarron J. L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
    Efforts to monitor the ocean for signs of climate change are hampered by ever-present noise, in the form of stochastic ocean variability, and detailed knowledge of the character of this noise is necessary for estimating ...
  • Alessi, Carol A.; Lentz, Steven J.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Castro, Belmiro Mendes; Geyer, W. Rockwell (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
    A Multidisciplinary Amazon Shelf SEDiment Study (AmasSeds) is a cooperative research program by geological, chemical, physical, and biological oceanographers from Brazil and the United States to study sedimentary processes ...
  • Primeau, Francois W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06)
    The steady states of two models of the double-gyre wind-driven ocean circulation are studied. The link between the steady state solutions of the models and their time-mean and low-frequency variability is explored to ...
  • Warren, Bruce A. (2007-09-28)
    Nansen-bottle stations were occupied by ships and personnel of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from 1931 to about 1981. Most of these data are in archives, but using them intelligently to depict the state of the ...
  • Johnson, Gregory C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    Theory and observations of deep circulation in the near-equatorial Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans are reviewed. Flow of deep and bottom water in the near-equatorial Indian and Pacific oceans, the two oceans with ...
  • Silverthorne, Katherine E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    Observational and modeling techniques are employed to investigate the thermal and inertial upper ocean response to wind and buoyancy forcing in the North Atlantic Ocean. First, the seasonal kinetic energy variability of ...
  • Dosser, Hayley V.; Rainville, Luc; Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-02)
    Salinity and temperature profiles from drifting ice-tethered profilers in the Beaufort gyre region of the Canada Basin are used to characterize and quantify the regional near-inertial internal wave field over one year. ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M.; Toole, John M.; Klein, Patrice; Thomas, Leif N. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-08)
    Layering of ocean velocity “fine structure” has been coherently observed across the entire extent of a Gulf Stream warm-core ring using a shipboard acoustic Doppler current profiler system in September 2009 and independently ...
  • Rypina, Irina I.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Lozier, M. Susan (American Meteorological Society, 2011-05)
    Motivated by discrepancies between Eulerian transport estimates and the behavior of Lagrangian surface drifters, near-surface transport pathways and processes in the North Atlantic are studied using a combination of data, ...
  • Chen, Changsheng; Gao, Guoping; Qi, Jianhua; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Beardsley, Robert C.; Kowalik, Zygmunt; Lin, Huichan; Cowles, Geoffrey W. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-27)
    A spherical coordinate version of the unstructured grid 3-D FVCOM (finite volume coastal ocean model) has been applied to the Arctic Ocean to simulate tides with a horizontal resolution ranging from 1 km in the near-coastal ...
  • Wang, Jinbo; Spall, Michael A.; Flierl, Glenn R.; Malanotte-Rizzoli, Paola (American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-16)
    A simple barotropic quasi-geostrophic model is used to demonstrate that instabilities radiated from an unstable eastern boundary current can generate zonal striations in the ocean interior with realistic wavelengths and ...
  • Cenedese, Claudia; Adduce, Claudia (American Meteorological Society, 2010-08)
    Dense overflows entrain surrounding waters at specific locations, for example, sills and constrictions, but also along the descent over the continental slope. The amount of entrainment dictates the final properties of these ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M. (2011-04-08)
    In this report, Eighteen Degree Water (EDW) formation will be discussed, with emphasis on advances in understanding emerging within the past decade. In particular, a recently completed field study of EDW (CLIMODE) is ...
  • Lai, Zhigang; Chen, Changsheng; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Beardsley, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-13)
    The unstructured grid finite volume coastal ocean model (FVCOM) system has been expanded to include nonhydrostatic dynamics. This addition uses the factional step method with both split mode explicit and semi-implicit ...
  • Lai, Zhigang; Chen, Changsheng; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Beardsley, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-12-21)
    The generation, propagation, and dissipation processes of large-amplitude nonlinear internal waves in Massachusetts Bay during the stratified season were examined using the nonhydrostatic Finite-Volume Coastal Ocean Model ...
  • Helfrich, Karl R. (2006-01-29)
    The nonlinear evolution of a localized layer of buoyant, uniform potential vorticity fluid of uniform depth H, width w0 and length L released adjacent to a wall in a rotating system is studied using reduced-gravity ...
  • Helfrich, Karl R.; Grimshaw, Roger H. J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-03)
    The disintegration of a first-mode internal tide into shorter solitary-like waves is considered. Since observations frequently show both tides and waves with amplitudes beyond the restrictions of weakly nonlinear theory, ...
