  • The 1995 Georges Bank Stratification Study and moored array measurements 

    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 ...
  • Direct interaction between the Gulf Stream and the shelfbreak south of New England 

    Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Todd, Robert E.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Andres, Magdalena; Manning, James P. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-08-02)
    Sea surface temperature imagery, satellite altimetry, and a surface drifter track reveal an unusual tilt in the Gulf Stream path that brought the Gulf Stream to 39.9°N near the Middle Atlantic Bight shelfbreak—200 km north ...
  • Estimates of dispersion from clustered-drifter deployments on the southern flank of Georges Bank 

    Manning, James P.; Churchill, James H. (2006-03-21)
    Data from 16 clustered-drifter deployments are used to examine horizontal dispersion on the southern flank of Georges Bank. The spreading rates of all clusters have an average of 1.6 km d-1 with a standard deviation of 1.8 ...
  • Slope water intrusions onto Georges Bank 

    Churchill, James H.; Manning, James P.; Beardsley, Robert C. (American Geophysical Union, 2003-11-18)
    Data from moored instruments and hydrographic cruises of the U.S. GLOBEC NW Atlantic/Georges Bank program reveal a series of intrusions of high-salinity water extending onto the southern flank of Georges Bank during the ...
  • Wind-induced, cross-frontal exchange on Georges Bank : a mechanism for early summer on-bank biological particle transport 

    Chen, Changsheng; Schlitz, Ronald J.; Lough, R. Gregory; Smith, Keston W.; Beardsley, Robert C.; Manning, James P. (American Geophysical Union, 2003-11-29)
    Water exchange across the tidal-mixing front on the southern flank of Georges Bank (GB) is examined using a two-dimensional (2D) primitive equation ocean model. The model domain features a cross-frontal transect including ...
