  • Luther, Douglas Scott (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 ...
  • Fu, Lee-Lueng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
    The structure of the inertial peak in deep ocean kinetic energy spectra is studied here. Records were obtained from Polymode arrays deployed in the Western North Atlantic Ocean (40°W to 70°W, 15°N to 42°N). The results ...
  • Toole, John M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-03)
    The Southern Ocean as defined here is the body of water between the Antarctic Continent and the Antarctic Polar Front, (APF). This ocean is considered important in the global thermodynamic balance of the ocean-atmosphere ...
  • Bray, Nancy Amanda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-08)
    Observational evidence of seasonal variability below the main thermocline in the eastern North Atlantic is described, and a theoretical model of oceanic response to seasonally varying windstress forcing is constructed to ...
  • Pettigrew, Neal R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-12)
    Data from the COBOLT experiment, which investigated the first 12 km off Long Island's south shore, are analyzed and discussed. Moored current meter records indicate that the nearshore flow field is strongly polarized ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-06)
    The warm, salty water influenced by the Mediterranean outfow can be observed at mid-depth throughout the Central North Atlantic Ocean. Katz (1970) first noted that rather than a gradual salinity decrease away from the ...
  • Young, William R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-08)
    This thesis consists of three loosely related theoretical studies. In chapters 1 - 3 the physical mechanisms which determine the three dimensional structure of the currents in the Sverdrup interior of a wind-driven gyre ...
  • Shaw, Ping-Tung Peter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-02)
    Mean long-isobath drift of the order 5 cm/sec has been observed on several continental shelves, e.g. in the Middle Atlantic Bight and in the Weddell Sea. A theoretical model is developed to explore the driving mechanism ...
  • Pratt, Lawrence J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-04)
    The dynamics of steady and unsteady channel flow over large obstacles is studied analytically and numerically in an attempt to determine the applicability of classical hydraulic concepts to such flows. The study is motivated ...
  • Hotchkiss, Frances Luellen Stephenson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-05)
    Velocity and temperature time series from Hudson Submarine Canyon and hydrographic surveys of seven canyons of the Middle Atlantic Bight indicate that the effects of storms, tides, and incoming internal waves are intensified ...
  • Chereskin, Teresa K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-08)
    The development of nonlinear surface and internal wave groups is investigated. Surface wave evolution was observed in an unusually long wave channel as a function of steepness and group length. Dissipation and frequency ...
  • Dewar, William K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-10)
    Four different problems concerning Gulf Stream Rings are considered. The first deals with the particle trajectories of, and advection-diffusion by, a dynamic model of a Ring. It is found that the streaklines computed ...
  • Fofonoff, Nick P.; Millard, Robert C. (Unesco, 1983)
    Algorithms for computation of fundamental properties of seawater, based on the practical salinity scale (PSS-78) and the international equation of state for seawater (EOS-80), are compiled in the present report for ...
  • Zlotnicki, Victor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-02)
    Altimetric, gravimetric and oceanographic data over the North Atlantic are combined -using techniques of optimum estimation- to infer the surface expression of the time averaged circulation (ζ) and to estimate the ...
  • Cornuelle, Bruce D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-04)
    Ocean acoustic tomography was proposed in 1978 by Munk and Wunsch as a possible technique for monitoring the evolution of temperature, density, and current fields over large regions. In 1981, the Ocean Tomography ...
  • Huang, Rui Xin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-05)
    Part one of this thesis discusses the structure of the thermocline and the current pattern within a two-layer model. The corresponding flow field is explored as the amount of water in the upper layer is gradually reduced ...
  • Meacham, Stephen P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-06)
    Several problems are addressed herein. They are loosely connected by the theme of resonant triad interactions. The main topic is the finite amplitude evolution of weakly unstable, linear eigenmodes in a meridionally ...
  • Brown, Ellen Dunning (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-08)
    This thesis addresses several aspects of the problem of determining the effect of the low-frequency eddy variability on the mean circulation of the Western North Atlantic. A framework for this study is first established ...
  • Hall, Melinda M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-02)
    From October, 1982 to October, 1983 a current meter mooring reaching from the bottom into the thermocline was deployed for the first time in the Gulf Stream at 68°W. The temperatures, pressures, and velocities at the ...
  • Ciesluk, Alfred J.; Guest, Brian J.; Marquette, Craig D.; Tupper, George H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-04)
    The endurance of self-sustained oceanographic instruments is generally limited to battery energy. Tests were initiated to measure the capacities of several types of electrochemical batteries when discharged at temperatures ...
