  • Engel, Patricia Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-09)
    Mechanisms for the tidal component of salt flux in the Hudson River estuary are investigated using a 3D numerical model. Variations with river discharge, fortnightly tidal forcing, and along channel variability are ...
  • Cole, Sylvia T.; Rudnick, Daniel L. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-02-18)
    Observations of the spatial distribution and persistence of thermohaline structure are presented, and show how advection and diffusion affect a passive tracer. More than two years of underwater glider observations in the ...
  • Moore, G. W. K.; Renfrew, I. A.; Pickart, Robert S. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-27)
    On a variety of spatial and temporal scales, the energy transferred by air-sea heat and moisture fluxes plays an important role in both atmospheric and oceanic circulations. This is particularly true in the sub-polar North ...
  • Kirincich, Anthony R.; Lentz, Steven J.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Ganju, Neil K. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-09)
    The spatial structure of the tidal and background circulation over the inner shelf south of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, was investigated using observations from a high-resolution, high-frequency coastal radar system, ...
  • Sloyan, Bernadette M. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-16)
    Strain variance from standard hydrographic profiles in the southern hemisphere oceans shows that turbulent mixing is vertically and spatially non-uniform. In the South Atlantic, Indian and South Pacific Oceans, enhanced ...
  • Zang, Xiaoyun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    A simple dynamic model is used with various observations to provide an approximate spectral description of low frequency oceanic variability. Such a spectrum has wide application in oceanography, including the optimal ...
  • Cenedese, Claudia; Linden, P. F. (Cambridge University Press, 2002-02-15)
    Buoyancy-driven surface currents were generated in the laboratory by releasing buoyant fluid from a source adjacent to a vertical boundary in a rotating container. Different bottom topographies that simulate both a continental ...
  • Barth, John A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-10)
    A two-layer shallow water equation model is used to investigate the linear stability of a coastal upwelling front. The model features a surface front near a coastal boundary and bottom topography which is an arbitrary ...
  • Valdes, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-06)
    The intent of this project was to test and evaluate a new data collection concept; that of utilizing a "store and forward" message system in a low earth orbiting satellite, and to determine its suitabilty for oceanographic ...
  • Goldner, Daniel R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06)
    Efforts to understand the Arctic system have recently focused on the role in local and global circulation of waters from the Arctic shelf seas. In this study, steady-state exchanges between the Arctic shelves and the ...
  • Danielson, S.; Aagaard, Knut; Weingartner, Thomas J.; Martin, S.; Winsor, Peter; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Quadfasel, D. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-09-19)
    Using 14 year-long instrumented moorings deployed south of St. Lawrence Island, along with oceanographic drifters, we investigate the circulation over the central Bering shelf and the role of polynyas in forming and ...
  • Kwon, Young-Oh; Frankignoul, Claude (2011-02-02)
    The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) in the last 250 years of the 700-yearlong present-day control integration of the Community Climate System Model version 3 with T85 atmospheric resolution exhibits a ...
  • Guan, Yu Ping; Huang, Rui Xin (American Meteorological Society, 2008-04)
    The classical two-box model of Stommel is extended in two directions: replacing the buoyancy constraint with an energy constraint and including the wind-driven gyre. Stommel postulated a buoyancy constraint for the ...
  • Yang, Jiayan; Comiso, Josefino C.; Walsh, David; Krishfield, Richard A.; Honjo, Susumu (American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-09)
    Observations of the ocean, atmosphere, and ice made by Ice-Ocean Environmental Buoys indicate that mixing events reaching the depth of the halocline have occurred in various regions in the Arctic Ocean. Our analysis suggests ...
  • Mathis, Jeremy T.; Pickart, Robert S.; Byrne, Robert H.; McNeil, Craig L.; Moore, G. W. K.; Juranek, Laurie W.; Liu, Xuewu; Ma, Jian; Easley, Regina A.; Elliot, Matthew M.; Cross, Jessica N.; Reisdorph, Stacey C.; Bahr, Frank B.; Morison, James H.; Lichendorf, Trina; Feely, Richard A. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-04-11)
    The carbon system of the western Arctic Ocean is undergoing a rapid transition as sea ice extent and thickness decline. These processes are dynamically forcing the region, with unknown consequences for CO2 fluxes and ...
