    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 ...

    We analyze abyssal temperature data in the western North Atlantic Ocean from the 1980s–2000s, showing that reductions in Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) signatures have reached even that basin. Trans-basin oceanographic ...
  • The reduced Ostrovsky equation : integrability and breaking 

    Grimshaw, Roger H. J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Johnson, Edward R. (2012-05-10)
    The reduced Ostrovsky equation is a modi cation of the Korteweg-de Vries equation, in which the usual linear dispersive term with a third-order deriva- tive is replaced by a linear non-local integral term, which represents ...
  • Reevaluating the roles of eddies in multiple barotropic wind-driven gyres 

    Fox-Kemper, Baylor (American Meteorological Society, 2005-07)
    Multiple-gyre ocean models have a weaker mean subtropical circulation than single-gyre calculations with the same viscosity and subtropical forcing. Traditionally, this reduction in circulation is attributed to an intergyre ...
  • Reflection and transmission of equatorial Rossby waves 

    Spall, Michael A.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2005-03)
    The interaction of equatorial Rossby waves with a western boundary perforated with one or more narrow gaps is investigated using a shallow-water numerical model and supporting theory. It is found that very little of the ...
  • Reflection and tunneling of ocean waves observed at a submarine canyon 

    Thomson, James M.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-04-07)
    Ocean surface gravity waves with periods between 20 and 200 s were observed to reflect from a steep-walled submarine canyon. Observations of pressure and velocity on each side of the canyon were decomposed into incident waves ...
  • Regime-dependent nonstationary relationship between the East Asian winter monsoon and North Pacific Oscillation 

    Pak, Gyundo; Park, Young-Hyang; Vivier, Frederic; Kwon, Young-Oh; Chang, Kyung-Il (American Meteorological Society, 2014-11-01)
    The East Asian winter monsoon (EAWM) and the North Pacific Oscillation (NPO) constitute two outstanding surface atmospheric circulation patterns affecting the winter sea surface temperature (SST) variability in the western ...
  • Regional impact of submarine canyons during seasonal upwelling 

    Connolly, Thomas P.; Hickey, Barbara M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-02-12)
    A numerical model of the northern California Current System along the coasts of Washington and British Columbia is used to quantify the impact of submarine canyons on upwelling from the continental slope onto the shelf. ...
  • A regional modeling study of the entraining Mediterranean outflow 

    Xu, X.; Chassignet, Eric P.; Price, James F.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Peters, Hartmut (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-12)
    We have evaluated a regional-scale simulation of the Mediterranean outflow by comparison with field data obtained in the 1988 Gulf of Cádiz Expedition. Our ocean model is based upon the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) ...
  • The relationship among oceanography, prey fields, and beaked whale foraging habitat in the Tongue of the Ocean 

    Hazen, Elliott L.; Nowacek, Douglas P.; St. Laurent, Louis C.; Halpin, Patrick N.; Moretti, David J. (Public Library of Science, 2011-04-27)
    Beaked whales, specifically Blainville's (Mesoplodon densirostris) and Cuvier's (Ziphius cavirostris), are known to feed in the Tongue of the Ocean, Bahamas. These whales can be reliably detected and often localized within ...
