  • Eddies and an extreme water mass anomaly observed in the eastern south Pacific at the Stratus mooring 

    Stramma, Lothar; Weller, Robert A.; Czeschel, Rena; Bigorre, Sebastien P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-02-12)
    In the tropical eastern South Pacific the Stratus Ocean Reference Station (ORS) (∼20°S, 85.5°W) is located in the transition zone between the oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) and the well-oxygenated subtropical gyre. In February/March ...
  • Eddies and friction : removal of vorticity from the wind-driven gyre 

    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 ...
  • Eddies in the Canada Basin, Arctic Ocean, observed from ice-tethered profilers 

    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 ...
  • Eddy dynamics of ß plumes 

    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 ...
  • Eddy forcing of the mean circulation in the western North Atlantic 

    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 ...
  • Eddy formation near the west coast of Greenland 

    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 ...
  • Eddy generation at a convex corner by a coastal current in a rotating system 

    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 ...
  • Eddy stirring in the Southern Ocean 

    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 ...
  • Eddy transport of organic carbon and nutrients from the Chukchi Shelf : impact on the upper halocline of the western Arctic Ocean 

    Mathis, Jeremy T.; Pickart, Robert S.; Hansell, Dennis A.; Kadko, David; Bates, Nicholas R. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-04)
