  • Trask, Richard P.; Dean, Jerome P.; Valdes, James R.; Marquette, Craig D. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-02)
    In 1986, FASINEX, a Frontal Air-Sea Interaction Experiment, a multi-investigator cooperative experiment, was conducted to study the role of horizontal variability in air-sea interaction in the persistent front formed ...
  • Hosom, David S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-10)
    This report will present the results of an investigation into the feasibility of several modes of wireless data transmission including: (1) radio frequency modems, (2) acoustic modems (using the ship's steel hull for a ...
  • Montgomery, Ellyn T.; Toole, John M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-11)
    This report describes fine- and microstructure profile data taken on a cruise to Fieberling Guyot, a seamount in the northeast subtropical Pacific Ocean. The work performed at sea, instruments used, data return and ...
  • Ferrari, Raffaele; Polzin, Kurt L. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-08)
    Distributions of temperature (T) and salinity (S) and their relationship in the oceans are the result of a balance between T–S variability generated at the surface by air–sea fluxes and its removal by molecular dissipation. ...
  • Schmitt, Raymond W. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-01-24)
    Salt fingers are a form of double-diffusive convection that can occur in a wide variety of fluid systems, ranging from stellar interiors and oceans to magma chambers. Their amplitude has long been difficult to quantify, ...
  • Chen, Changsheng; Huang, Haosheng; Beardsley, Robert C.; Liu, Hedong; Xu, Qichun; Cowles, Geoffrey W. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-03-28)
    An unstructured grid, finite volume, three-dimensional (3-D) primitive equation coastal ocean model (FVCOM) has been developed for the study of coastal ocean and estuarine circulation by Chen et al. (2003a). The finite ...
  • Warren, Bruce A. (2006-01-30)
    The First Law of Thermodynamics is developed from fundamentals for open, non-equilibrium systems of seawater in motion, exchanging salt and freshwater internally and with their surroundings, and varying continuously in ...
  • Gregg, M. C.; Pratt, Lawrence J. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
    Hood Canal, a long fjord in Washington State, has strong tides but limited deep-water renewal landward of a complex constriction. Tide-resolving hydrographic and velocity observations at the constriction, with a depth-cycling ...
  • Emond, Marc; Vandemark, Doug; Forsythe, James; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Farrar, J. Thomas (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-03)
    A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study was performed of the wind flow around two ocean buoys used to collect meteorological data from sensors mounted on the buoy tower. The CFD approach allowed wind velocity perturbations ...
  • Mahadevan, Amala; Orpe, A. V.; Kudrolli, A.; Mahadevan, L. (2012-05-17)
    Flow through a saturated, granular, porous medium can lead to internal erosion, preferential flow enhancement and the formation of channels within the bulk of the medium. We examine this phenomenon using a combination ...
  • Thompson, LuAnne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-11)
    One and two layer models are used to study flow over axisymmetric isolated topography. Inviscid or nearly inviscid flow in which non-linear effects have order one importance is considered, and both the effects of β and ...
  • Cronin, Meghan F.; Bond, Nicholas A.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Ichikawa, Hiroshi; Jayne, Steven R.; Kawai, Yoshimi; Konda, Masanori; Qiu, Bo; Rainville, Luc; Tomita, Hiroyuki (Elsevier Ltd., 2012-07-21)
    Data from the Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO) surface mooring are used to analyze the balance of processes affecting the upper ocean heat content and surface mixed layer temperature variations in the Recirculation ...
  • Deshayes, Julie; Frankignoul, Claude; Drange, Helge (2006-12-13)
    The influence of changes in the rate of deep water formation in the North Atlantic subpolar gyre on the variability of the transport in the Deep Western Boundary Current is investigated in a realistic hind cast simulation ...
  • Thomas, Leif N. (2008-02)
    A mechanism for the generation of intrathermocline eddies (ITEs) at wind-forced fronts is examined using a high resolution numerical simulation. Favorable conditions for ITE formation result at fronts forced by “down-front” ...
  • Rainville, Luc; Jayne, Steven R.; McClean, Julie L.; Maltrud, Mathew E. (2007-03-09)
    A high-resolution numerical model is used to examine the formation and variability of the North Pacific Subtropical ModeWater (STMW) over a 3-year period. The STMW distribution is found to be highly variable in both space ...
  • Watts, D. Randolph; Kennelly, Maureen A.; Donohue, Kathleen A.; Tracey, Karen L.; Chereskin, Teresa K.; Weller, Robert A.; Victoria, Ivan (American Meteorological Society, 2013-10)
    Seven current meters representing four models on a stiffly buoyed mooring were placed for an 11-month deployment to intercompare their velocity measurements: two vector-measuring current meters (VMCMs), two Aanderaa recording ...
  • Sutherland, David A.; Pickart, Robert S.; Jones, E. Peter; Azetsu-Scott, Kumiko; Eert, A. Jane; Olafsson, Jon (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-27)
    The freshwater composition of waters on the southeast Greenland shelf and slope are described using a set of high-resolution transects occupied in summer 2004, which included hydrographic, velocity, nutrient, and chemical ...
  • Hakkinen, Sirpa M. A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-31)
    Arctic Ocean model simulations have revealed that the Arctic Ocean has a basin-wide oscillation with cyclonic and anticyclonic circulation anomalies (Arctic Ocean Oscillation (AOO)) that has a prominent decadal variability ...
  • Fratantoni, Paula S.; McCartney, Michael S. (2009-11)
    Historical hydrographic data, spanning the period 1896-2006, are used to examine the annual mean and seasonal variations in the distribution of freshwater along and across the shelf/slope boundary along the Labrador and ...
  • Thomas, Leif N.; Ferrari, Raffaele (American Meteorological Society, 2008-11)
    The generation and destruction of stratification in the surface mixed layer of the ocean is understood to result from vertical turbulent transport of buoyancy and momentum driven by air–sea fluxes and stresses. In this ...
