  • Tupper, George H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-12)
    Geographic exploration of the eddy and mean fields in the world's oceans using moored instrumentation was concentrated in the North Atlantic in the 1970s. Initial efforts to obtain zero-order coverage in the North Pacific ...
  • Stuebe, David Allen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-09)
    A moored profiler record from the western tropical North Atlantic provides the first continuous time series of temperature, salinity and velocity profiles in a thermohaline staircase. Variations in the intensity of ...
  • Kerfoot, W. Charles; Yousef, Foad; Hobmeier, Martin M.; Maki, Ryan P.; Jarnagin, S. Taylor; Churchill, James H. (Springer, 2011-09-04)
    The spiny water flea (Bythotrephes longimanus) is spreading from Great Lakes coastal waters into northern inland lakes within a northern temperature-defined latitudinal band. Colonization of Great Lakes coastal embayments ...
  • Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-03)
    Current-meter data from a two-year mooring within a fracture zone on the western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in the South Atlantic Ocean are reported. The mooring, deployed in conjunction with the Brazil Basin Tracer ...
  • Robbins, Paul E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-09)
    This thesis is a study of the physical mechanisms that ventilate the subtropical thermocline of the eastern North Atlantic. The starting point is an analysis of the existent historical database of natural and anthropogenic ...
  • Ni, Bingjian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
    This thesis addresses the issue, "Which approach to instabilities-temporal, spatial or pulse theory- is the most appropriate model for the Gulf Stream?" I also address the question of how the observations might be compared ...
  • Worrilow, Scott E.; Bradshaw, Kenton M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-07)
    This is a description of the design and motivation for the newest generation of submersible ARGOS transmitters currently used by the Subsurface Mooring Operations Group at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as well ...
  • Siddall, M.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Giosan, Liviu (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-17)
    We apply a shock-capturing numerical model based on the single-layer shallow water equations to an idealized geometry of the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara in order to test the implications of a suggested sudden Black ...
  • Nelken, Haim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-08)
    Several problems connected by the theme of thermal forcing are addressed herein. The main topic is the stratification and flow field resulting from imposing a specified heat flux on a fluid that is otherwise confined to ...
  • Huang, Rui Xin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-05)
    Part one of this thesis discusses the structure of the thermocline and the current pattern within a two-layer model. The corresponding flow field is explored as the amount of water in the upper layer is gradually reduced ...
  • Avsec, Dusan (E. Blondel la Rougery : Gauthier-VillarsWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1939)
    The object of the present work is a study thermoconvective eddies in a layer of air heated uniformly from below. Being given the importance that these eddies present in meteorlogical phenomena, we have tried to attain three ...
  • Schmitt, Raymond W. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2011-07-01)
    New experimental results on haline convection show a surprising preference for narrow fingers over large-scale convection when even a small stabilizing temperature gradient is present (Hage and Tilgner, 2010). This regime ...
  • Todd, Robert E.; Rudnick, Daniel L.; Mazloff, Matthew R.; Cornuelle, Bruce D.; Davis, Russ E. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-02-03)
    Upper ocean thermohaline structure in the California Current System is investigated using sustained observations from autonomous underwater gliders and a numerical state estimate. Both observations and the state estimate ...
  • Hodges, Benjamin A.; Fratantoni, David M. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-23)
    A synthetic moored array composed of five buoyancy-propelled autonomous underwater gliders was used to characterize mesoscale variability and phytoplankton distribution in a 100 km × 100 km domain in the Philippine Sea ...
  • Lu, Zhu Min; Huang, Rui Xin (American Meteorological Society, 2010-07)
    Based on the classical Ekman layer theory, a simple analytical solution of the steady flow induced by a stationary hurricane in a homogenous ocean is discussed. The model consists of flow converging in an inward spiral in ...
  • Rosenfeld, Leslie K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-12)
    The focus of this dissertation is on the description and dynamical interpretation of the tidal band current fluctuations over the continental shelf off northern California. The term "tidal band" is used here to denote ...
  • Chen, Changsheng; Huang, Haosheng; Beardsley, Robert C.; Xu, Qichun; Limeburner, Richard; Cowles, Geoffrey W.; Sun, Yunfang; Qi, Jianhua; Lin, Huichan (American Geophysical Union, 2011-12-10)
    The unstructured-grid, Finite-Volume Community Ocean Model (FVCOM) was used to simulate the tides in the Gulf of Maine (GoM) and New England Shelf (NES) for homogeneous and summer stratified conditions. FVCOM captures the ...
  • Thomson, James M.; Elgar, Steve; Raubenheimer, Britt; Herbers, T. H. C.; Guza, R. T. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-01)
    The strong tidal modulation of infragravity (200 to 20 s period) waves observed on the southern California shelf is shown to be the result of nonlinear transfers of energy from these low-frequency long waves to ...
  • Gunson, James R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-03)
    For two CTD surveys taken two months apart during the 1981 Ocean Tomography experiment southwest of Bermuda, a time-dependent ocean state is estimated that evolves from the first to the second survey. The mesoscale motions ...
  • Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2006-11)
    The time-dependent response of an ocean basin to the imposition of cooling (or heating) is examined in the context of a quasigeostrophic, two-layer model on the beta plane. The focus is on the structure and magnitude of ...
