  • 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 ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Jiang, Houshuo; Farrar, J. Thomas (2013-05-30)
    An unstructured grid, phase-averaged wave model forced with winds from a high resolution atmospheric model is used to evaluate wind wave conditions in the Red Sea over an approximately 2-year period. The Red Sea lies in a ...
  • Eisenman, Ian; Yu, Lisan; Tziperman, Eli (2005-12-15)
    Westerly wind bursts (WWBs) in the equatorial Pacific occur during the development of most El Niño events and are believed to be a major factor in ENSO's dynamics. Because of their short time scale, WWBs are normally ...
  • Nikolopoulos, Anna; Pickart, Robert S.; Fratantoni, Paula S.; Shimada, Koji; Torres, Daniel J.; Jones, E. Peter (2008-01-16)
    From August 2002 to September 2004 a high-resolution mooring array was maintained across the western Arctic boundary current in the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska. The array consisted of profiling instrumentation, providing ...
  • Fratantoni, Paula S.; Zimmermann, Sarah; Pickart, Robert S.; Swartz, Marshall (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-12)
    A high-resolution mooring array was deployed at the edge of the continental shelf in the Beaufort Sea as a part of the western Arctic Shelf-Basin Interactions Program, a multidisciplinary experiment that was designed to ...
  • Spall, Michael A.; Pickart, Robert S.; Fratantoni, Paula S.; Plueddemann, Albert J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-08)
    The mean structure and time-dependent behavior of the shelfbreak jet along the southern Beaufort Sea, and its ability to transport properties into the basin interior via eddies are explored using high-resolution mooring ...
  • Fratantoni, Paula S.; Pickart, Robert S. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-10)
    Twelve years of historical hydrographic data, spanning the period 1990–2001, are analyzed to examine the along-stream evolution of the western North Atlantic Ocean shelfbreak front and current, following its path between ...
  • Zhao, Liuzhi; Chen, Changsheng; Vallino, Joseph J.; Hopkinson, Charles S.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Lin, Huichan; Lerczak, James A. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-10-16)
    Wetland-estuarine-shelf interaction processes in the Plum Island Sound and Merrimack River system in the Massachusetts coast are examined using the high-resolution unstructured grid, finite volume, primitive equations, ...
  • Seo, Hyodae; Brink, Kenneth H.; Dorman, Clive E.; Koracin, Darko; Edwards, Christopher A. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-08-09)
    Analysis of sea surface temperature (SST) from coastal buoys suggests that the summertime over-shelf water temperature off the U.S. West Coast has been declining during the past 30 years at an average rate of −0.19°C ...
  • LeGrand, Pascal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    Paleo-tracers such as carbon 13 and cadmium show that the deep Atlantic was enriched in nutrients during the Last Ice Age. The conventionally accepted interpretation of these higher nutrient levels is that a reduction ...
  • St-Laurent, Pierre; Straneo, Fiamma; Dumais, J.-F.; Barber, David G. (2011-08-16)
    We examine the freshwater balance of Hudson and James bays, two shallow and fresh seas that annually receive 12% of the pan- Arctic river runoff. The analyses use the results from a 3–D sea ice-ocean coupled model with ...
  • Rack, Frank R.; Zook, Robert; Levy, Richard H.; Limeburner, Richard; Stewart, Craig; Williams, Michael J. M.; Luyendyk, Bruce; ANDRILL Coulman High Project Site Survey Team (The Oceanography Society, 2012-09)
    Extensive field operations were conducted on the northwestern Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica from November 2010 through January 2011. A significant amount of equipment, supplies, and people safely traversed from McMurdo ...
  • Bennett, Sara L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-09)
    The highly energetic Agulhas Retroflection region south of the African continent lies at the junction of the South Indian, South Atlantic, and Circumpolar Oceans. A new survey of the Agulhas Retroflection taken in March ...
  • Fofonoff, Nick P.; Hayes, S. P.; Millard, Robert C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-12)
    This report describes calibration techniques developed over the past three years for the WHOI/Brown CTD in the Moored Array Program. Comparison is made with classical methods of hydrography for stations obtained in the ...
  • Plueddemann, Albert J.; Weller, Robert A.; Lukas, Roger; Lord, Jeffrey; Bouchard, Paul R.; Walsh, M. Alexander (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-03)
    The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Hawaii Ocean Timeseries (HOT) Site (WHOTS), 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii, is intended to provide long-term, high-quality air-sea fluxes as a coordinated part of the HOT ...
