      Pritchard, Mark; Weller, Robert A. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-03-23)
      During July–August 2001, oceanographic variability on the New England inner continental shelf was investigated with an emphasis on temporal scales shorter than tidal periods. Mooring and ship survey data showed that subtidal ...
    • Observations of long period waves in the tropical oceans and atmosphere 

      Luther, Douglas S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
      The existence of resonant, baroclinic, equatorially-trapped inertia-gravity waves (discovered by Wunsch and Gill (1976)) is confirmed in the mid-Pacific by spectral analysis of long sea level records. The energy of the ...
