  • Alessi, Carol A.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Caruso, Michael J.; Churchill, James H.; Irish, James D.; Lentz, Steven J.; Limeburner, Richard; Werner, R.; Weller, Robert A.; Williams, Albert J.; Williams, W.; Manning, James P.; Smith, P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-08)
    The 1995 Geoges Bank Stratification Study (GBSS) was the first intensive process study conducted as part of the U.S. GLOBEC Northwest Atlantic/Georges Bank field program. The GBSS was designed to investigate the physical ...
  • Ru, Hua (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-04)
    A simple quasi-two dimensional dynamical model of Thermohaline circulation (THC) is developed, assuming that the mixing only occurs near western and eastern boundary layers. When the surface density is prescribed, the ...
  • Whitehead, John A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
    As a driving parameter is slowly altered, thermohaline ocean circulation models show either a smooth evolution of a mode of flow or an abrupt transition of temperature and salinity fields from one mode to another. An abrupt ...
  • Hall, Melinda M.; Torres, Daniel J.; Yashayaev, Igor (Elsevier B.V., 2012-11-19)
    Nearly every spring since 1990, hydrographic data have been collected along a section in the Labrador Sea known as AR7W. Since 1995, lowered acoustic doppler current profiler (LADCP) data have also been collected. In this ...
  • Dell, Rebecca Walsh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    This paper begins to explore a previously neglected mechanism for abyssal ocean mixing using bottom boundary layer dynamics. Abyssal mixing and the associated upward buoyancy fluxes are necessary to balance the sinking ...
  • Chapman, David C.; Lentz, Steven J. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-08)
    An idealized theoretical model is developed for the acceleration of a two-dimensional, stratified current over a uniformly sloping bottom, driven by an imposed alongshelf pressure gradient and taking into account the effects ...
  • Colbo, Keir; Weller, Robert A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-09)
    The accuracies of the meteorological sensors (air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, near-surface temperature, longwave and shortwave radiation, and wind speed and direction) that compose the Improved ...
  • Bahr, Frank B.; Joyce, Terrence M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-04)
    The objective of this cruise was to occupy a hydrographic section nominally along 149E from Papua New Guinea to the shelf off the coast of Japan near Yokohama as part of the one-time WOCE Hydrographic Programe survey of ...
  • Chester, David B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
    Variability of the Florida Current has been monitored via acoustic tomography. A reciprocal tomography experiment was conducted in the eastern half of the Florida Straits during mid October and November, 1983. A triangular ...
  • Baumgartner, Mark F.; Anderson, Steven P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-03)
    Numerical weather forecasting model products were acquired for use in the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Experiment to augment in situ observations of meteorological parameters (e.g., wind speed and direction, air ...
  • Chechelnitsky, Michael Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-06)
    Data assimilation methods, such as the Kalman filter, are routinely used in oceanography. The statistics of the model and measurement errors need to be specified a priori. In this study we address the problem of estimating ...
  • Plueddemann, Albert J.; Galbraith, Nancy R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    The ICESHELF 94 Experiment was conducted during April of 1994 from an ice camp in the Lincoln Sea at approximately 84 degrees N, 63 degrees W. An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was operated at the camp from 8 to ...
  • Williams, William J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-02)
    During January-March, Scotian Shelf water has been observed to flow episodically from the southwestern Scotian Shelf directly across the Northeast Channel to Georges Bank. The possible factors that allow Scotian Shelf ...
  • Kadko, David; Pickart, Robert S.; Mathis, Jeremy T. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-02-22)
    Radioisotope evaluation of a cold-core, anticyclonic eddy surveyed in September 2004 on the Chukchi Sea continental slope was used to determine its age since formation over the shelf environment. Because the eddy can be ...
  • Richardson, Philip L. (2006-12-02)
    Surface drifters and subsurface floats drifting at depths near 800 m were used to study the pathways of warm salty Indian Ocean water leaking into the South Atlantic that is a component of the upper limb of the Atlantic ...
  • Farrar, J. Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
    The role of ocean dynamics in driving air-sea interaction is examined at two contrasting sites on 125°W in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean using data from the Pan American Climate Study (PACS) field program. Analysis ...
  • Bunker, Andrew F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1968-02)
    A C-54Q aircraft was bailed to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to participate in the International Indian Ocean Expedition and other research projects in the fields of meteorology and oceanography. With the joint ...
  • Fofonoff, Nick P.; Millard, Robert C. (Unesco, 1983)
    Algorithms for computation of fundamental properties of seawater, based on the practical salinity scale (PSS-78) and the international equation of state for seawater (EOS-80), are compiled in the present report for ...
  • Payne, Richard E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-12)
    The design and testing of an all-thermistor (no thermopile) pyrgeometer (LWT) is descrbed. After calibration by comparison with a Kipp & Zonen CG4, 9.2 months of data show mean differences of order 1-2 W m-2 with standard ...
  • Grifoll, Manel; Aretxabaleta, Alfredo L.; Espino, Manuel; Warner, John C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-22)
    We examine the circulation over the inner-shelf of the Catalan Sea using observations of currents obtained from three Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (two at 24 m and one at 50 m) during March–April 2011. The along-shelf ...
