  • Tziperman, Eli; Yu, Lisan (American Meteorological Society, 2007-06-15)
    The correlation between parameters characterizing observed westerly wind bursts (WWBs) in the equatorial Pacific and the large-scale SST is analyzed using singular value decomposition. The WWB parameters include the ...
  • Hristova, Hristina G.; Pedlosky, Joseph; Spall, Michael A. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
    A linear stability analysis of a meridional boundary current on the beta plane is presented. The boundary current is idealized as a constant-speed meridional jet adjacent to a semi-infinite motionless far field. The far-field ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    This thesis addresses the question of how a highly energetic eddy field could be generated in the interior of the ocean away from the swift boundary currents. The energy radiation due to the temporal growth of non-trapped ...
  • Nikurashin, Maxim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)
    Observations and inverse models suggest that small-scale turbulent mixing is enhanced in the Southern Ocean in regions above rough topography. The enhancement extends 1 km above the topography suggesting that mixing is ...
  • Charette, Matthew A.; Breier, Crystaline F.; Henderson, Paul B.; Pike, Steven M.; Rypina, Irina I.; Jayne, Steven R.; Buesseler, Ken O. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-03-28)
    Radium has four naturally occurring isotopes that have proven useful in constraining water mass source, age, and mixing rates in the coastal and open ocean. In this study, we used radium isotopes to determine the fate and ...
  • Wooding, Christine M.; Furey, Heather H.; Pacheco, Marguerite A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-01)
    This report and its accompanying webpage (http://www.whoi.edu/science/PO/rafos/index.htm) describe the processing steps for RAFOS floats, from subscribing to Service Argos to plotting the final data for a data report. ...
  • Richardson, Philip L.; Wooding, Christine M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-04)
    As part of the Semaphore Experiment four Meddies (Mediterranean Water Eddies) were discovered in the Canary Basin and tracked with freely drifting RAFOS floats. An additional Meddy was discovered off Lisbon by Pingree ...
  • McPhaden, Michael J.; Meyers, G.; Ando, K.; Masumoto, Y.; Murty, V. S. N.; Ravichandran, M.; Syamsudin, F.; Vialard, J.; Yu, Lisan; Yu, W. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-04)
    The Indian Ocean is unique among the three tropical ocean basins in that it is blocked at 25°N by the Asian landmass. Seasonal heating and cooling of the land sets the stage for dramatic monsoon wind reversals, strong ...
  • Berloff, Pavel S. (Cambridge University Press, 2005-04-01)
    The role of mesoscale oceanic eddies in driving large-scale currents is studied in an eddy-resolving midlatitude double-gyre ocean model. The reference solution is decomposed into large-scale and eddy components in a way ...
  • McPhee, M. G.; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Morison, James H.; Steele, Michael; Alkire, M. B. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-21)
    The dramatic reduction in minimum Arctic sea ice extent in recent years has been accompanied by surprising changes in the thermohaline structure of the Arctic Ocean, with potentially important impact on convection in the ...
  • Straneo, Fiamma; Hamilton, Gordon S.; Sutherland, David A.; Stearns, Leigh A.; Davidson, Fraser J. M.; Hammill, Mike O.; Stenson, Garry B.; Rosing-Asvid, Aqqalu (2009-12-17)
    The recent rapid increase in mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet is primarily attributed to an acceleration of outlet glaciers. One possible cause is increased melting at the ice/ocean interface driven by the synchronous ...
  • Kukulka, Tobias; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Trowbridge, John H.; Sullivan, Peter P. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-11)
    Langmuir circulation (LC) is a turbulent upper-ocean process driven by wind and surface waves that contributes significantly to the transport of momentum, heat, and mass in the oceanic surface layer. The authors have ...
  • Andresen, Camilla S.; Straneo, Fiamma; Ribergaard, Mads H.; Bjork, Anders A.; Andersen, Thorbjorn J.; Kuijpers, Antoon; Norgaard-Pedersen, Niels; Kjaer, Kurt H.; Schjoth, Frands; Weckstrom, Kaarina; Ahlstrom, Andreas P. (2011-11-08)
    During the early 2000s the Greenland Ice Sheet experienced the largest ice mass loss observed on the instrumental record1, largely as a result of the acceleration, thinning and retreat of major outlet glaciers in West ...
  • McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Carmack, Eddy; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Krishfield, Richard A.; Guay, Christopher K.; Yamamoto-Kawai, Michiyo; Jackson, Jennifer M.; Williams, William J. (Oceanography Society, 2011-09)
    Sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean diminished significantly during the first decade of the 2000s, most particularly in the Canada Basin where the loss of both multiyear and first-year ice was greater than in the other three ...
  • Baumgartner, Mark F.; Fratantoni, David M.; Hurst, Thomas P.; Brown, Moira W.; Cole, Timothy V. N.; Van Parijs, Sofie M.; Johnson, Mark P. (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-08)
    In the past decade, much progress has been made in real-time passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammal occurrence and distribution from autonomous platforms (e.g., gliders, floats, buoys), but current systems focus ...
  • Proshutinsky, Andrey; Aksenov, Yevgeny; Kinney, Jaclyn Clement; Gerdes, Rudiger; Golubeva, Elena; Holland, David; Holloway, Greg; Jahn, Alexandra; Johnson, Mark; Popova, Ekaterina; Steele, Michael; Watanabe, Eiji (Oceanography Society, 2011-09)
    Observational data show that the Arctic Ocean has significantly and rapidly changed over the last few decades, which is unprecedented in the observational record. Air and water temperatures have increased, sea ice volume ...
  • Greene, Charles H.; Monger, Bruce C.; McGarry, Louise P.; Connelly, Matthew D.; Schnepf, Neesha R.; Pershing, Andrew J.; Belkin, Igor M.; Fratantoni, Paula S.; Mountain, David G.; Pickart, Robert S.; Ji, Rubao; Bisagni, James J.; Chen, Changsheng; Hakkinen, Sirpa M. A.; Haidvogel, Dale B.; Wang, Jia; Head, Erica; Smith, Peter; Conversi, Alessandra (The Oceanography Society, 2012-09)
    During recent decades, historically unprecedented changes have been observed in the Arctic as climate warming has increased precipitation, river discharge, and glacial as well as sea-ice melting. Additionally, shifts in ...
  • Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M.; Toole, John M. (2011-07-20)
    Water properties measured by the central mooring in the Line W mooring array southeast of Cape Cod document a large character shift during the period of November 2001 to April 2008. The observed temperature, salinity and ...
  • Bracco, Annalisa; Kucharski, Fred; Molteni, Franco; Hazeleger, Wilco; Severijns, Camiel (2006-08-21)
