    • Assessment of mesoscale eddy parameterizations for coarse resolution ocean models 

      Solovev, Mikhail A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-09)
      Climate simulation with numerical oceanic models requires a proper parameterization scheme in order to represent the effects of unresolved mesoscale eddies. Even though a munber of schemes have been proposed and some ...
    • Rotating convection driven by differential bottom heating and its application 

      Park, Young-Gyu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
      A convection experiment was done with a rotating rectangular tank as a model of oceanic meridional overturning circulation. Heat flux was fixed at one bottom end of the tank using an electrical heater. Temperature was ...
    • Thermoconvective eddies in air : application to meteorology 

      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 ...
