  • Reconstructing the ocean's interior from surface data 

    Wang, Jinbo; Flierl, Glenn R.; LaCasce, Joseph H.; McClean, Julie L.; Mahadevan, Amala (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    A new method is proposed for extrapolating subsurface velocity and density fields from sea surface density and sea surface height (SSH). In this, the surface density is linked to the subsurface fields via the surface ...
  • Reconstruction and analysis of the Chukchi Sea circulation in 1990–1991 

    Panteleev, G.; Nechaev, D. A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Woodgate, Rebecca; Zhang, Jinlun (American Geophysical Union, 2010-08-24)
    The Chukchi Sea (CS) circulation reconstructed for September 1990 to October 1991 from sea ice and ocean data is presented and analyzed. The core of the observational data used in this study comprises the records from 12 ...
