  • Dynamics of global ocean heat transport variability 

    Jayne, Steven R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)
    A state-of-the-art, high-resolution ocean general circulation model is used to estimate the time-dependent global ocean heat transport and investigate its dynamics. The north-south heat transport is the prime manifestation ...
  • Formation and erosion of the seasonal thermocline in the Kuroshio Extension Recirculation Gyre 

    Cronin, Meghan F.; Bond, Nicholas A.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Ichikawa, Hiroshi; Jayne, Steven R.; Kawai, Yoshimi; Konda, Masanori; Qiu, Bo; Rainville, Luc; Tomita, Hiroyuki (Elsevier Ltd., 2012-07-21)
    Data from the Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO) surface mooring are used to analyze the balance of processes affecting the upper ocean heat content and surface mixed layer temperature variations in the Recirculation ...
  • Heat and salinity budgets at the Stratus mooring in the southeast Pacific 

    Holte, James W.; Straneo, Fiamma; Farrar, J. Thomas; Weller, Robert A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-28)
    The surface layer of the southeast Pacific Ocean (SEP) requires an input of cold, fresh water to balance heat gain, and evaporation from air-sea fluxes. Models typically fail to reproduce the cool sea surface temperatures ...
  • Interannual variability of wintertime temperature on the inner continental shelf of the Middle Atlantic Bight 

    Connolly, Thomas P.; Lentz, Steven J. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-09-17)
    The shallow depth of the inner continental shelf allows for rapid adjustment of the ocean to air-sea exchange of heat and momentum compared with offshore locations. Observations during 2001–2013 are used to evaluate the ...
  • Summertime cooling of the shallow continental shelf 

    Fewings, Melanie R.; Lentz, Steven J. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-07-19)
    In summer on the shallow New England continental shelf, near the coast the water temperature is much cooler than the observed surface heat flux suggests. Using depth-integrated heat budgets in 12 and 27 m water depth ...
  • Wintertime convection and frontal interleaving in the Southern Ocean 

    Toole, John M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-03)
    The Southern Ocean as defined here is the body of water between the Antarctic Continent and the Antarctic Polar Front, (APF). This ocean is considered important in the global thermodynamic balance of the ocean-atmosphere ...
  • The WOCE–era 3–D Pacific Ocean circulation and heat budget 

    Macdonald, Alison M.; Mecking, Sabine; Toole, John M.; Robbins, Paul E.; Johnson, Gregory C.; Wijffels, Susan E.; Talley, Lynne D.; Cook, Margaret F. (2009-08-17)
    To address questions concerning the intensity and spatial structure of the 3–dimensional circulation within the Pacific Ocean and the associated advective and diffusive property flux divergences, data from approximately ...
