  • Shimada, Koji; Kamoshida, Takashi; Itoh, Motoyo; Nishino, Shigeto; Carmack, Eddy; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Zimmermann, Sarah; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2006-04-21)
    The spatial pattern of recent ice reduction in the Arctic Ocean is similar to the distribution of warm Pacific Summer Water (PSW) that interflows the upper portion of halocline in the southern Canada Basin. Increases in ...
  • Anderson, Steven P.; Huang, Kelan; Brink, Nancy J.; Baumgartner, Mark F.; Weller, Robert A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-03)
    The surface mooring component of the NOAA Pan American Climate Study (PACS) took place from April 1997 to September 1998 in the eastern tropical Pacific. PACS was a NOAA funded study with the goal of investigating links ...
  • Way, Bryan S.; Ostrom, William M.; Weller, Robert A.; Ware, Jonathan D.; Trask, Richard P.; Cole, Rick; Donovan, Jeff (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-04)
    Three surface moorings were deployed in the eastern equatorial Pacifc from the R/V Roger Revelle as part of the Pan American Climate Study (PACS). PACS is a NOAA-funded study with the goal of investigating links between ...
  • Trask, Richard P.; Weller, Robert A.; Ostrom, William M.; Way, Bryan S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-08)
    Three surface moorings were recovered and redeployed during R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 73 in the eastern equatorial Pacific as pan of the Pan American Climate Study (PACS). PACS is a NOAA-funded study with the goal ...
  • Ostrom, William M.; Way, Bryan S.; Anderson, Steven P.; Jones, Brent; Key, Erica; Yuras, Gabriel (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-05)
    Two surface moorings were recovered during R/V Melville cruise PACS03MV in the eastern equatorial Pacific as part of the Pan American Climate Study (PACS). PACS is a NOAA-funded study with the goal of investigating links ...
  • Hufford, Gwyneth E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-02)
    Laboratory and numerical experiments are carried out in a parameter regime relevant to open-ocean deep convection. We consider the case of convection in a rotating stratified ocean of finite depth. Convection is induced ...
  • Poulin, Francis J.; Flierl, Glenn R.; Pedlosky, Joseph (Cambridge University Press, 2003-04-28)
    In this article we investigate time-periodic shear flows in the context of the two-dimensional vorticity equation, which may be applied to describe certain large-scale atmospheric and oceanic flows. The linear stability ...
  • MacKinnon, J. A.; Alford, Matthew H.; Sun, Oliver M. T.; Pinkel, Robert; Zhao, Zhongxiang; Klymak, Jody M. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-01)
    Observational evidence is presented for transfer of energy from the internal tide to near-inertial motions near 29°N in the Pacific Ocean. The transfer is accomplished via parametric subharmonic instability (PSI), which ...
  • Winsor, Peter; Chapman, David C. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-02)
    Pathways of Pacific Water flowing from the North Pacific Ocean through Bering Strait and across the Chukchi Sea are investigated using a two-dimensional barotropic model. In the no-wind case, the flow is driven only by a ...
  • Churchill, James H.; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-08-21)
    It has long been recognized that a massive flow of Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB) shelf water is exported to the deep ocean in the region near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. We examine the details of this export using data ...
  • Marchal, Olivier; Whitehead, John A.; Jensen, Anders (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2011-07-01)
    Freshwater is released along a wall of a basin containing salt water and rotating anticlockwise. The freshwater source is located near the surface between the center of the cylindrical basin and a corner along the wall. ...
  • Shimada, Koji; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Carmack, Eddy; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Nishino, Shigeto; Itoh, Motoyo (American Geophysical Union, 2004-10-16)
    Penetration of the 1990s warm temperature anomaly (WTA) of the Fram Strait branch of Atlantic Water (FSBW) in the Canada Basin is described using available temperature, salinity, and velocity data. The core temperatures ...
  • Hogg, Nelson G.; Frye, Daniel E. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-02)
    As part of a program aimed at developing a long-duration, subsurface mooring, known as Ultramoor, several modern acoustic current meters were tested. The instruments with which the authors have the most experience are the ...
  • Ainley, David G.; Spear, Larry B.; Tynan, Cynthia T.; Barth, John A.; Pierce, Stephen D.; Ford, R. Glenn; Cowles, Timothy J. (2004-08-28)
    As a part of the GLOBEC-Northeast Pacific project, we investigated variation in the abundance of marine birds in the context of biological and physical habitat conditions in the northern portion of the California Current ...
  • Woods, Nicholas W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-06)
    This thesis explores the role that the circulation in the Gulf of Maine (GOM) plays in determining the distribution of dense aggregations of copepods. These aggregations are an important part of the marine ecosystem, ...
  • Clayton, Sophie A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-06)
    The physical environment in the oceans dictates not only how phytoplankton cells are dispersed and their populations intermingled, but also mediates the supply of nutrients to the surface mixed layer. In this thesis I ...
  • Chen, Changsheng; Xue, Pengfei; Ding, Pingxing; Beardsley, Robert C.; Xu, Qichun; Mao, Xianmou; Gao, Guoping; Qi, Jianhua; Li, Chunyan; Lin, Huichan; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Shi, Maochong (American Geophysical Union, 2008-02-02)
    Physical mechanisms for the summertime offshore detachment of the Changjiang Diluted Water (CDW) into the East China Sea are examined using the high-resolution, unstructured-grid, Finite-Volume Coastal Ocean Model (FVCOM). ...
  • Epstein, Ari W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-06)
    This thesis addresses the question, "How do small-scale physics and biology combine to produce dense aggregations of certain species of zooplankton in the Great South Channel (GSC) of the Gulf of Maine?" The thesis ...
  • Bourles, Bernard; Lumpkin, Rick; McPhaden, Michael J.; Hernandez, Fabrice; Nobre, Paulo; Campos, Edmo; Yu, Lisan; Planton, Serge; Busalacchi, Antonio J.; Moura, Antonio D.; Servain, Jacques; Trotte, Janice (American Meteorological Society, 2008-08)
    The Pilot Research Moored Array in the tropical Atlantic (PIRATA) was developed as a multinational observation network to improve our knowledge and understanding of ocean–atmosphere variability in the tropical Atlantic. ...
  • Cowen, Robert K.; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Pineda, Jesus; Thorrold, Simon R.; Werner, Francisco E. (Oceanography Society, 2007-09)
    There is growing consensus that life within the world’s ocean is under considerable and increasing stress from human activities (Hutchings, 2000; Jackson et al., 2001). This unprecedented strain on both the structure and ...
