      Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Jan, Sen; Lermusiaux, Pierre F.J.; McClean, Julie L.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Taylor, Kevin; Cornuelle, Bruce D.; Duda, Timothy F.; Wang, Joe; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Sanford, Thomas B.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Lee, Craig M.; Lee, Ming-An; Leslie, Wayne; Haley, Patrick J.; Niiler, Pearn P.; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Velez-Belchi, Pedro; Lee, Dong-Kyu; Kim, Yoo Yin (The Oceanography Society, 2011-12)
      An important element of present oceanographic research is the assessment and quantification of uncertainty. These studies are challenging in the coastal ocean due to the wide variety of physical processes occurring on a ...

    • Eddy-Kuroshio interaction processes revealed by mooring observations off Taiwan and Luzon 

      Tsai, Cheng-Ju; Andres, Magdalena; Jan, Sen; Mensah, Vigan; Sanford, Thomas B.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Lee, Craig M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-10-08)
      The influence and fate of westward propagating eddies that impinge on the Kuroshio were observed with pressure sensor-equipped inverted echo sounders (PIESs) deployed east of Taiwan and northeast of Luzon. Zero lag ...
    • Experimental and numerical studies of sound propagation over a submarine canyon northeast of Taiwan 

      Lin, Ying-Tsong; Duda, Timothy F.; Emerson, Chris; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Newhall, Arthur E.; Calder, Brian; Lynch, James F.; Abbot, Philip A.; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Jan, Sen (IEEE, 2015-01-09)
      A study of sound propagation over a submarine canyon northeast of Taiwan was made using mobile acoustic sources during a joint ocean acoustic and physical oceanographic experiment in 2009. The acoustic signal levels ...
    • The formation and fate of internal waves in the South China Sea 

      Alford, Matthew H.; Peacock, Thomas; MacKinnon, Jennifer A.; Nash, Jonathan D.; Buijsman, Maarten C.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Chao, Shenn-Yu; Chang, Ming-Huei; Farmer, David M.; Fringer, Oliver B.; Fu, Ke-Hsien; Gallacher, Patrick C.; Graber, Hans C.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Jachec, Steven M.; Jackson, Christopher R.; Klymak, Jody M.; Ko, Dong S.; Jan, Sen; Johnston, T. M. Shaun; Legg, Sonya; Lee, I-Huan; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Mercier, Matthieu J.; Moum, James N.; Musgrave, Ruth; Park, Jae-Hun; Pickering, Andrew I.; Pinkel, Robert; Rainville, Luc; Ramp, Steven R.; Rudnick, Daniel L.; Sarkar, Sutanu; Scotti, Alberto; Simmons, Harper L.; St Laurent, Louis C.; Venayagamoorthy, Subhas K.; Wang, Yu-Huai; Wang, Joe; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Paluszkiewicz, Theresa; Tang, Tswen Yung (2015-03)
      Internal gravity waves, the subsurface analogue of the familiar surface gravity waves that break on beaches, are ubiquitous in the ocean. Because of their strong vertical and horizontal currents, and the turbulent mixing ...
    • Mean structure and fluctuations of the Kuroshio east of Taiwan from in situ and remote observations 

      Yang, Yiing-Jang; Jan, Sen; Chang, Ming-Huei; Wang, Joe; Mensah, Vigan; Kuo, Tien-Hsia; Tsai, Cheng-Ju; Lee, Chung-Yaung; Andres, Magdalena; Centurioni, Luca R.; Tseng, Yu-Heng; Liang, Wen-Der; Lai, Jian-Wu (The Oceanography Society, 2015-12)
      The Kuroshio is important to climate, weather prediction, and fishery management along the northeast coast of Asia because it transports tremendous heat, salt, and energy from east of the Philippines to waters southeast ...
    • Mean structure and variability of the cold dome northeast of Taiwan 

      Jan, Sen; Chen, Chung-Chi; Tsai, Ya-Ling; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Wang, Joe; Chern, Ching-Sheng; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Centurioni, Luca R.; Kuo, Jia-Yu (The Oceanography Society, 2011-12)
      The "cold dome" off northeastern Taiwan is one of the distinctive oceanic features in the seas surrounding Taiwan. The cold dome is important because persistent upwelling makes the region highly biologically productive. ...
    • Mean structure and variability of the Kuroshio from northeastern Taiwan to southwestern Japan 

      Andres, Magdalena; Jan, Sen; Sanford, Thomas B.; Mensah, Vigan; Centurioni, Luca R.; Book, Jeffrey W. (The Oceanography Society, 2015-12)
      In the subtropical western North Pacific Ocean, the Kuroshio delivers heat, salt, and momentum poleward, much like its North Atlantic analog, the Gulf Stream. Though the Kuroshio generally flows along the western boundary ...
    • Nutrient supply in the Southern East China Sea after Typhoon Morakot 

      Hung, Chin-Chang; Chung, Chih-Ching; Gong, Gwo-Ching; Jan, Sen; Tsai, Ya-Ling; Chen, Kuo-Shu; Chou, Wen Chen; Lee, Ming-An; Chang, Yi; Chen, Meng-Hsien; Yang, Wen-Rong; Tseng, Chiung-Jung; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2013-01-01)
      Recent studies show that typhoons have profound effects on phytoplankton assemblages along their tracks, but it is difficult to quantitatively estimate nutrient supply after a typhoon's passage due to a lack of nutrient ...
    • Observations of a freshwater pulse induced by Typhoon Morakot off the northern coast of Taiwan in August 2009 

      Jan, Sen; Wang, Joe; Yang, Yiing-Jang; Hung, Chin-Chang; Chern, Ching-Sheng; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Centurioni, Luca R.; Kuo, Jia-Yu; Wang, Bee (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2013-01-01)
