  • Andres, Magdalena; Park, Jae-Hun; Wimbush, Mark; Zhu, Xiao-Hua; Nakamura, Hirohiko; Kim, Kuh; Chang, Kyung-Il (American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-28)
    Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) index is strongly correlated with vertically integrated transport carried by the Kuroshio through the East China Sea (ECS). Transport was determined from satellite altimetry calibrated ...
  • Kida, Shinichiro; Yang, Jiayan; Price, James F. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-02)
    Marginal sea overflows and the overlying upper ocean are coupled in the vertical by two distinct mechanisms—by an interfacial mass flux from the upper ocean to the overflow layer that accompanies entrainment and by a ...
  • Plueddemann, Albert J.; Weller, Robert A.; Dickey, Thomas D.; Marra, John; Tupper, George H.; Way, Bryan S.; Ostrom, William M.; Bouchard, Paul R.; Oien, Andrea L.; Galbraith, Nancy R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-05)
    The Marine Light - Mixed Layer experiment took place in the sub-Arctic North Atlantic ocean, approximately 275 miles south of Reykjavik, Iceland. The field program included a central surface mooring to document the temporal ...
  • Smirnov, A.; Holben, B. N.; Slutsker, I.; Giles, D. M.; McClain, C. R.; Eck, T. F.; Sakerin, S. M.; Macke, A.; Croot, P.; Zibordi, G.; Quinn, P.

Krishna; Matarrese, R.; Robertson, E. J.; Jourdin, F. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-03-21)
    The paper presents the current status of the Maritime Aerosol Network (MAN), which has been developed as a component of the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET). MAN deploys Microtops handheld Sun photometers and utilizes the ...
  • Rintoul, Stephen R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-03)
    Inverse methods are applied to historical hydrographic data to address two aspects of the general circulation of the Atlantic Ocean. The method allows conservation statements for mass and other properties, along with a ...
  • Macdonald, Alison M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-07)
    Six hydrographic basinwide sections, two in each of the three major ocean basins, are employed in a set of inverse calculations to determine the extent of exchange between the Pacific and Indian Oceans through the ...
  • Cheng, Xuhua; Li, Lijuan; Du, Yan; Wang, Jing; Huang, Rui Xin (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-08-02)
    Over the period 2003–2011, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite pair revealed a remarkable variability in mass-induced sea surface height (MSSH) in the northwestern North Pacific. A significant ...
  • Gebbie, Geoffrey A.; Huybers, Peter (American Meteorological Society, 2012-02)
    A number of previous observational studies have found that the waters of the deep Pacific Ocean have an age, or elapsed time since contact with the surface, of 700–1000 yr. Numerical models suggest ages twice as old. Here, ...
  • Lentz, Steven J. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
    The mean heat and salt balances over the Middle Atlantic Bight continental shelf are investigated by testing the hypothesis that surface fluxes of heat or freshwater are balanced by along-isobath fluxes resulting from the ...
  • Bates, Susan C.; Fox-Kemper, Baylor; Jayne, Steven R.; Large, William G.; Stevenson, Samantha; Yeager, Stephen G. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-11-15)
    Air–sea fluxes from the Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) are compared with the Coordinated Ocean-Ice Reference Experiment (CORE) dataset to assess present-day mean biases, variability errors, and late ...
  • Jan, Sen; Chen, Chung-Chi; Tsai, Ya-Ling; Yang, Yiing Jiang; Wang, Joe; Chern, Ching-Sheng; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Centurioni, Luca; Kuo, Jia-Yu (The Oceanography Society, 2011-12)
    The "cold dome" off northeastern Taiwan is one of the distinctive oceanic features in the seas surrounding Taiwan. The cold dome is important because persistent upwelling makes the region highly biologically productive. ...
  • Eriksen, Charles Curtis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
    Measurements of horizontal and vertical current by propeller cluster current meters and temperature by thermistors mounted on a rigid array 8 m high and 20 m long moored in the oceanic main thermocline near Bermuda are ...
  • Gerbi, Gregory P.; Trowbridge, John H.; Edson, James B.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Terray, Eugene A.; Fredericks, Janet J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-05)
    This study makes direct measurements of turbulent fluxes in the mixed layer in order to close heat and momentum budgets across the air–sea interface and to assess the ability of rigid-boundary turbulence models to predict ...
  • Richards, Clark; Bourgault, Daniel; Galbraith, Peter S.; Hay, Alex; Kelley, Dan E. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-01-30)
    The shoaling of horizontally propagating internal waves may represent an important source of mixing and transport in estuaries and coastal seas. Including such effects in numerical models demands improvements in the ...
  • Liu, Ling Ling; Wang, Wei; Huang, Rui Xin (American Meteorological Society, 2008-06)
    Wind stress and tidal dissipation are the most important sources of mechanical energy for maintaining the oceanic general circulation. The contribution of mechanical energy due to tropical cyclones can be a vitally important ...
  • Wang, Wei; Qian, Chengchun; Huang, Rui Xin (2005-08-02)
    Mechanical energy input to the oceans is one of the most important factors controlling the oceanic general circulation. The atmosphere transports mechanical energy to the oceans primarily through wind stress, plus changes ...
  • Siedlecki, S. A.; Mahadevan, Amala; Archer, D. E. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-02-11)
    Model simulations performed with a three-dimensional, high-resolution, process study ocean model of eastern boundary upwelling systems are used to describe a mechanism that efficiently transports sediment-derived dissolved ...
  • Bowen, Melissa M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    The variability of salt transport determines the variation of the length of the salinity intrusion and the large-scale density gradient in an estuary. This thesis contains three studies that address salt transport and ...
  • Gelderloos, Renske; Straneo, Fiamma; Katsman, Caroline A. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-10-01)
    From 1969 to 1971 convection in the Labrador Sea shut down, thus interrupting the formation of the intermediate/dense water masses. The shutdown has been attributed to the surface freshening induced by the Great Salinity ...
  • Deshayes, Julie; Straneo, Fiamma; Spall, Michael A. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2009-05)
    An idealized model for a convective basin is used to investigate the mechanisms of variability of the formation and export of dense water. In this model, which consists of two isopycnic layers, dense water formation is ...
