  • Eddy-driven sediment transport in the Argentine Basin : is the height of the Zapiola Rise hydrodynamically controlled? 

    Weijer, Wilbert; Maltrud, Mathew E.; Homoky, William B.; Polzin, Kurt L.; Maas, Leo R. M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-03-27)
    In this study, we address the question whether eddy-driven transports in the Argentine Basin can be held responsible for enhanced sediment accumulation over the Zapiola Rise, hence accounting for the existence and growth ...
  • Formation of Subtropical Mode Water in a high-resolution ocean simulation of the Kuroshio Extension region 

    Rainville, Luc; Jayne, Steven R.; McClean, Julie L.; Maltrud, Mathew E. (2007-03-09)
    A high-resolution numerical model is used to examine the formation and variability of the North Pacific Subtropical ModeWater (STMW) over a 3-year period. The STMW distribution is found to be highly variable in both space ...
  • The Kuroshio Extension and its recirculation gyres 

    Jayne, Steven R.; Hogg, Nelson G.; Waterman, Stephanie N.; Rainville, Luc; Donohue, Kathleen A.; Watts, D. Randolph; Tracey, Karen L.; McClean, Julie L.; Maltrud, Mathew E.; Qiu, Bo; Chen, Shuiming; Hacker, Peter (2009-07-01)
    This paper reports on the strength and structure of the Kuroshio Extension and its recirculation gyres. In the time average, quasi-permanent recirculation gyres are found to the north and south of the Kuroshio Extension ...
  • Sea level variability in the Arctic Ocean from AOMIP models 

    Proshutinsky, Andrey; Ashik, Igor M.; Hakkinen, Sirpa M. A.; Hunke, Elizabeth C.; Krishfield, Richard A.; Maltrud, Mathew E.; Maslowski, Wieslaw; Zhang, Jinlun (American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-26)
    Monthly sea levels from five Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (AOMIP) models are analyzed and validated against observations in the Arctic Ocean. The AOMIP models are able to simulate variability of sea level ...
  • Subtropical mode water variability in a climatologically forced model in the northwestern Pacific Ocean 

    Douglass, Elizabeth M.; Jayne, Steven R.; Peacock, Synte; Bryan, Frank O.; Maltrud, Mathew E. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-01)
    A climatologically forced high-resolution model is used to examine variability of subtropical mode water (STMW) in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Despite the use of annually repeating atmospheric forcing, significant ...
