  • Karabasov, S. A.; Berloff, Pavel S.; Goloviznin, V. M. (2009-06)
    A new high-resolution Eulerian numerical method is proposed for modelling quasigeostrophic ocean dynamics in eddying regimes. The method is based on a novel, second-order non-dissipative and lowdispersive conservative ...
  • Kirincich, Anthony R.; Lentz, Steven J.; Gerbi, Gregory P. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
    Recently, the velocity observations of acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) have been successfully used to estimate turbulent Reynolds stresses in estuaries and tidal channels. However, the presence of surface gravity ...
  • Payne, Richard E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    An analysis has been made of the calibrations done during 1990 through 1994 on Rotronic MP- 100 relative humidity sensors (used in the Improved METeorological (IMET) system and sensors built at the Woods Hole Oceanographic ...
  • Richardson, Philip L. (2004-11-29)
    Recent satellite-tracked surface drifter trajectories were analyzed to describe the mean currents and eddies in the Caribbean Sea. The structure of the Caribbean Current and its variability were determined from high-resolution ...
  • Cherubin, L. M.; Richardson, Philip L. (2007-04-16)
    The variability of the Caribbean Current is studied in terms of the influence on its dynamics of the freshwater inflow from the Orinoco and Amazon rivers. Sea-surface salinity maps of the eastern Caribbean and SeaWiFS color ...
  • Hutto, Lara; Farrar, J. Thomas; Weller, Robert A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-04)
    The long-range scientific objective of the Coupled Boundary Layer Air Sea Transfer (CBLAST) project is to observe and understand the temporal and spatial variability of the upper ocean, to identify the processes that ...
  • Chen, Shuyi S.; Zhao, Wei; Donelan, Mark A.; Price, James F.; Walsh, Edward J. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-03)
    The record-setting 2005 hurricane season has highlighted the urgent need for a better understanding of the factors that contribute to hurricane intensity, and for the development of corresponding advanced hurricane ...
  • Pritchard, Mark; Gobat, Jason I.; Ostrom, William M.; Lord, Jeffrey; Bouchard, Paul R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-05)
    During the summer of 2001, several moorings and cruises were used as part of the CBLAST-Low (Coupled Boundary Layer Air-Sea Transfer under low wind conditions) pilot experiment in the North Atlantic, south of Martha’s ...
  • Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Bates, Susan C.; Briegleb, Bruce P.; Jayne, Steven R.; Jochum, Markus; Large, William G.; Peacock, Synte; Yeager, Stephen G. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-03-01)
    The ocean component of the Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) is described, and its solutions from the twentieth-century (20C) simulations are documented in comparison with observations and those of CCSM3. ...
  • Balch, William M.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Bowler, B. C.; Drapeau, D. T. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-07-18)
    The fate of particles in the mixed layer is of great relevance to the global carbon cycle as well as to the propagation of light in the sea. We conducted four manipulative field experiments called “Chalk-Ex” in which known ...
  • Straneo, Fiamma; Heimbach, Patrick; Sergienko, Olga; Hamilton, Gordon S.; Catania, Ginny; Griffies, Stephen; Hallberg, Robert; Jenkins, Adrian; Joughin, Ian; Motyka, Roman; Pfeffer, W. Tad; Price, Stephen F.; Rignot, Eric; Scambos, Ted; Truffer, Martin; Vieli, Andreas (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    The recent retreat and speedup of outlet glaciers, as well as enhanced surface melting around the ice sheet margin, have increased Greenland's contribution to sea level rise to 0.6 ± 0.1 mm yr−1 and its discharge of ...
  • Deese, Heather E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
    I study the exchange between a boundary current and flanking horizontal recirculations in a 'sliced-cylinder' rotating tank laboratory experiment. Two flow configurations are investigated: a single recirculation and a ...
  • Rypina, Irina I.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Pullen, Julie; Levin, Julia C.; Gordon, Arnold L. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-09)
    Techniques from dynamical systems theory have been applied to study horizontal stirring of fluid in the Philippine Archipelago. The authors’ analysis is based on velocity fields produced by two high-resolution (3 and 6 km) ...
  • Pratt, Lawrence J.; Rypina, Irina I.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Wang, P.; Childs, H.; Bebieva, Y. (Cambridge University Press, 2013-12-05)
    We investigate and quantify stirring due to chaotic advection within a steady, three-dimensional, Ekman-driven, rotating cylinder flow. The flow field has vertical overturning and horizontal swirling motion, and is an ...
  • Racine, Brian S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-08)
    A field experiment was undertaken during July and August of 1995 aimed at understanding the interaction of acoustic signals with the internal wave field off the coast of New Jersey. As part of SWARM (Shallow Water Acoustics ...
  • Våge, Kjetil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Aspects of the circulation and convection in the Irminger Sea are investigated using a variety of in-situ, satellite, and atmospheric reanalysis products. Westerly Greenland tip jet events are intense, small-scale wind ...
  • Pratt, Lawrence J.; Spall, Michael A. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-12)
    A theory for the exchange between a rotating, buoyancy-forced marginal sea and an ocean is developed and tested numerically. Cooling over the marginal sea leads to sinking and sets up a two-layer exchange flow, with a warm ...
  • Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Jan, Sen; Lermusiaux, Pierre F.J.; McClean, Julie L.; Centurioni, Luca; Taylor, Kevin; Cornuelle, Bruce D.; Duda, Timothy F.; Wang, Joe; Yang, Yiing Jiang; Sanford, Thomas B.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Lee, Craig M.; Lee, Ming-An; Leslie, Wayne; Haley, Patrick J.; Niiler, Pearn P.; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Velez-Belchi, Pedro; Lee, Dong-Kyu; Kim, Yoo Yin (The Oceanography Society, 2011-12)
    An important element of present oceanographic research is the assessment and quantification of uncertainty. These studies are challenging in the coastal ocean due to the wide variety of physical processes occurring on a ...
  • Spall, Michael A. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-11)
    The circulation and water mass transformation in a regional ocean-ice model of the Chukchi Sea are discussed. The model has horizontal resolution of O(4 km), is forced by fluxes derived from daily NCEP reanalysis fields, ...

    Laboratory and numerical experiments are used to study flow of a uniform-density fluid on the [beta]-plane around a thin zonally elongated island (or ridge segment in the abyss). This orientation is chosen specifically to ...
