  • Sutherland, David A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-02)
    The subtidal circulation of the southeast Greenland shelf is described using a set of highresolution hydrographic and velocity transects occupied in summer 2004. The main feature present is the East Greenland Coastal ...
  • Sutherland, David A.; Pickart, Robert S. (2008-03-12)
    The subtidal circulation of the southeast Greenland shelf is described using a set of high-resolution hydrographic and velocity transects occupied in summer 2004. The main feature is the East Greenland Coastal Current ...
  • Pickart, Robert S.; Torres, Daniel J.; Fratantoni, Paula S. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-06)
    High-resolution hydrographic and velocity measurements across the East Greenland shelf break south of Denmark Strait have revealed an intense, narrow current banked against the upper continental slope. This is believed to ...
  • Hodges, Benjamin A.; Fratantoni, David M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-12)
    This report describes the collection of water property data from EcoMapper AUVs during the R/V Knorr 209-1 cruise as part of the SPURS (Salinity Processes Upper-ocean Regional Study) project. Post-processing was required ...
  • Fox-Kemper, Baylor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-06)
    Inertial terms dominate the single-gyre ocean model and prevent western-intensification when the viscosity is small. This occurs long before the oceanically-appropriate parameter range. It is demonstrated here that the ...
  • Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Toole, John M.; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Krishfield, Richard A.; Plueddemann, Albert J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-01)
    Five ice-tethered profilers (ITPs), deployed between 2004 and 2006, have provided detailed potential temperature θ and salinity S profiles from 21 anticyclonic eddy encounters in the central Canada Basin of the Arctic ...
  • Kida, Shinichiro (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-09)
    The importance of eddies and nonlinearities in ß-plume dynamics in the deep ocean was investigated using reduced gravity models of the deep ocean forced by a small region of cross isopycnal transport in the interior. The ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bracco, Annalisa; Pedlosky, Joseph; Pickart, Robert S. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-09)
    This paper extends A. Bracco and J. Pedlosky’s investigation of the eddy-formation mechanism in the eastern Labrador Sea by including a more realistic depiction of the boundary current. The quasigeostrophic model consists ...
  • Klinger, Barry A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-03)
    Rotating baroclinic and barotropic boundary currents flowing around a corner in the laboratory were studied in order to discover the circumstances under which eddies were produced at the corner. Such flows are reminiscent ...
  • Rypina, Irina I.; Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Berloff, Pavel S.; Pratt, Lawrence J. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-12)
    This study investigates the anisotropic properties of the eddy-induced material transport in the near-surface North Atlantic from two independent datasets, one simulated from the sea surface height altimetry and one derived ...
  • Waterman, Stephanie N.; Hogg, Nelson G.; Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
    The authors use data collected by a line of tall current meter moorings deployed across the axis of the Kuroshio Extension (KE) jet at the location of maximum time-mean eddy kinetic energy to characterize the mean jet ...
  • Waterman, Stephanie N. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)
    This thesis examines the nature of eddy-mean flow interactions in western boundary current jets and recirculation gyre dynamics from both theoretical and observational perspectives. It includes theoretical studies of ...
  • Naveira Garabato, Alberto C.; Ferrari, Raffaele; Polzin, Kurt L. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-09-17)
    There is an ongoing debate concerning the distribution of eddy stirring across the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) and the nature of its controlling processes. The problem is addressed here by estimating the isentropic ...
  • Mathis, Jeremy T.; Pickart, Robert S.; Hansell, Dennis A.; Kadko, David; Bates, Nicholas R. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-04)
    In September 2004 a detailed physical and chemical survey was conducted on an anticyclonic, cold-core eddy located seaward of the Chukchi Shelf in the western Arctic Ocean. The eddy had a diameter of ∼16 km and was centered ...
  • Kukulka, Tobias; Hara, Tetsu (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
    This is the second part of a two-part investigation of a coupled wind and wave model that includes the enhanced form drag of breaking waves. The model is based on the wave energy balance and the conservation of air-side ...
  • Kukulka, Tobias; Hara, Tetsu (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
    This is the first of a two-part investigation of a coupled wind and wave model that includes the enhanced form drag of breaking waves. In Part I here the model is developed and applied to mature seas. Part II explores the ...
  • Clayson, Carol Anne; Bogdanoff, Alec S. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-04-15)
    Diurnal sea surface warming affects the fluxes of latent heat, sensible heat, and upwelling longwave radiation. Diurnal warming most typically reaches maximum values of 3°C, although very localized events may reach 7°–8°C. ...
  • Whitehead, John A. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-16)
    Mathematical solutions for constant potential vorticity critically controlled flow through ocean passages are complicated and not available in simple form. Therefore, to provide formulas for numerical circulation and ocean ...
  • Spall, Michael A. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-04)
    The impact of the observed relationship between sea surface temperature and surface wind stress on baroclinic instability in the ocean is explored using linear theory and a nonlinear model. A simple parameterization of the ...
