  • Colbo, Keir; Weller, Robert A. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2007-09)
    The persistent stratus clouds found west of Chile and Peru are important for the coupling of the ocean and atmosphere in the eastern Pacific and thus in the climate of the region. The relatively cool sea-surface temperatures ...
  • Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M.; Toole, John M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12-22)
    Horizontal velocity, temperature and salinity measurements from the Line W array for the period 2004–2008 show large changes in the water mass structure and circulation of the Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC). Fluctuations ...
  • Pena-Molino, Beatriz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-09)
    The variability in the DWBC, its connection to the forcing in the northern North Atlantic and interaction with the Gulf Stream were explored from a combination of remote sensing and in-situ measurements in the western ...
  • Pena-Molino, Beatriz; Joyce, Terrence M. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-02-06)
    Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and Sea Surface Height (SSH) data for 1993–2007 for the North Atlantic are combined with hydrographic data at 69W to investigate the relation between the Gulf Stream (GS) position and the Slope ...
  • Chen, Changsheng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-06)
    This thesis consists of two parts: (I) variability of currents and water properties in late spring in the northern Great South Channel and (II) numerical study of stratified tidal rectification over Georges Bank. In part ...
  • Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Yeager, Stephen G.; Kwon, Young-Oh; Tribbia, Joseph J.; Phillips, Adam S.; Hurrell, James W. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-08-01)
    Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) variability is documented in the Community Climate System Model, version 4 (CCSM4) preindustrial control simulation that uses nominal 1° horizontal resolution in all its ...
  • Wells, Andrew J.; Cenedese, Claudia; Farrar, J. Thomas; Zappa, Christopher J. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    The aqueous thermal boundary layer near to the ocean surface, or skin layer, has thickness O(1 mm) and plays an important role in controlling the exchange of heat between the atmosphere and the ocean. Theoretical arguments ...
  • Bunker, Andrew F.; Haurwitz, B.; Malkus, Joanne Starr; Stommel, Henry M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1949)
    The observations presented and discussed in this paper were obtained as part of a research project conducted under contract NObs-2083 with the Bureau of Ships of the U. S. Navy by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. ...
  • Shroyer, Emily L.; Moum, James N.; Nash, Jonathan D. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-04-24)
    Comprehensive observations of velocity, density, and turbulent dissipation permit quantification of the nonlinear internal wave (NLIW) contribution to vertical heat flux and lateral mass transport over New Jersey's shelf. ...
  • Leaman, Kevin Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-06)
    A set of vertical profiles of horizontal ocean currents, obtained by electro-magnetic profilers in the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Bermuda in the spring of 1973, has been analyzed in order to study the vertical structure ...
  • Werner, Sandra R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    The bottom boundary layer structure on the southern flank of Georges Bank was investigated for the period February 19 to March 20, 1995. During this time, vertical stratification was weak and the near bottom waters were ...
  • Young, William R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-08)
    This thesis consists of three loosely related theoretical studies. In chapters 1 - 3 the physical mechanisms which determine the three dimensional structure of the currents in the Sverdrup interior of a wind-driven gyre ...
  • Balmforth, Neil J.; Burbidge, A. S.; Craster, R. V.; Salzig, J.; Shen, A. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-09-08)
    The dynamics of expanding domes of isothermal lava are studied by treating the lava as a viscoplastic material with the Herschel–Bulkley constitutive law. Thin-layer theory is developed for radially symmetric extrusions ...
  • White, Brian L.; Nepf, Heidi M. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-01-08)
    This paper presents a method for predicting the distributions of velocity and shear stress in shallow channels with a boundary of emergent vegetation. Experiments in a laboratory channel with model vegetation show that the ...
  • Furey, Heather H.; Bower, Amy S.; Richardson, Philip L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-11)
    This is the final data report of all acoustically tracked RAFOS float data collected by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1996-1999 during the Atlantic Climate Change Experiment (ACCE). The RAFOS float component ...
  • von Appen, Wilken-Jon; Pickart, Robert S.; Brink, Kenneth H.; Haine, Thomas W. N. (2013-10-30)
    Data from seven moorings deployed across the East Greenland shelfbreak and slope 280 km downstream of Denmark Strait are used to investigate the characteristics and dynamics of Denmark Strait Overflow Water (DSOW) cyclones. ...
  • Harris, Carolyn L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-05)
    The water mass distribution in the southwestern Barents Sea, the thermohaline structure of the western Barents Sea Polar Front, and the formation of local water masses are described based on an analysis of historical ...
  • Kirincich, Anthony R.; Lentz, Steven J.; Barth, John A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    Recent work by S. Lentz et al. documents offshore transport in the inner shelf due to a wave-driven return flow associated with the Hasselmann wave stress (the Stokes–Coriolis force). This analysis is extended using ...
  • Durland, Theodore S.; Farrar, J. Thomas (American Meteorological Society, 2012-11)
    The theoretical resonant excitation of equatorial inertia–gravity waves and mixed Rossby–gravity waves is examined. Contrary to occasionally published expectations, solutions show that winds that are broadband in both zonal ...
  • Farrar, J. Thomas; Durland, Theodore S. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-11)
    In the 1970s and 1980s, there was considerable interest in near-equatorial variability at periods of days to weeks associated with oceanic equatorial inertia–gravity waves and mixed Rossby–gravity waves. At that time, the ...
