  • Whitehead, John A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
    As a driving parameter is slowly altered, thermohaline ocean circulation models show either a smooth evolution of a mode of flow or an abrupt transition of temperature and salinity fields from one mode to another. An abrupt ...
  • Hodges, Benjamin A.; Fratantoni, David M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-12)
    This report describes the collection of water property data from EcoMapper AUVs during the R/V Knorr 209-1 cruise as part of the SPURS (Salinity Processes Upper-ocean Regional Study) project. Post-processing was required ...
  • Timmermans, Mary-Louise; Toole, John M.; Proshutinsky, Andrey; Krishfield, Richard A.; Plueddemann, Albert J. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-01)
    Five ice-tethered profilers (ITPs), deployed between 2004 and 2006, have provided detailed potential temperature θ and salinity S profiles from 21 anticyclonic eddy encounters in the central Canada Basin of the Arctic ...
  • Bowen, Melissa M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    The variability of salt transport determines the variation of the length of the salinity intrusion and the large-scale density gradient in an estuary. This thesis contains three studies that address salt transport and ...
  • Warren, Bruce A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-10)
    Some (not all) of the oceanographic literature slightly miscalculates the vertical velocity (w) and diffusive salt flux induced by evaporation (E) and precipitation (P) at the sea surface. Short, simple, physical derivations ...
  • Yu, Lisan (American Meteorological Society, 2010-01)
    The existence of a cool and salty sea surface skin under evaporation was first proposed by Saunders in 1967, but few efforts have since been made to perceive the salt component of the skin layer. With two salinity missions ...
  • Knapp, George P.; Stalcup, Marvel C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-01)
    Improvements in the measurement of salinity and dissolved oxygen during the past few years at WHOI have increased the accuracy of salinity observations to +/- 0.001 ppt and that of dissolved oxygen determinations to +/- ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M.; Bacon, Sheldon; Kalashnikov, Pave; Romanov, Alexander; Stalcup, Marvel C.; Zaburdaev, Vladimir (WOCE Hydrographic Programme Offce, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-07)
    This report summarizes the work, under the auspices of the WOCE Hydrographic Programme (WHP), which took place on the R/V Akademik Vernadsky in June-July 1991. The goal of the exercise was an international comparison/training ...
  • Johnson, Gregory C.; Toole, John M.; Larson, Nordeen G. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-06)
    Sensor response corrections for two models of Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., conductivity–temperature–depth (CTD) instruments (the SBE-41CP and SBE-41) designed for low-energy profiling applications were estimated and applied ...
  • Engel, Patricia Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-09)
    Mechanisms for the tidal component of salt flux in the Hudson River estuary are investigated using a 3D numerical model. Variations with river discharge, fortnightly tidal forcing, and along channel variability are ...
  • Stuebe, David Allen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-09)
    A moored profiler record from the western tropical North Atlantic provides the first continuous time series of temperature, salinity and velocity profiles in a thermohaline staircase. Variations in the intensity of ...
  • Yang, Jiayan; Comiso, Josefino C. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-17)
    The salinity in the upper Beaufort Sea from the mixed layer to the thermocline layer was observed by drifting buoys from 1996 to 1998. The salinity in this depth range was lower in winter and higher in the summer, the exact ...
  • Fofonoff, Nick P.; Hayes, S. P.; Millard, Robert C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-12)
    This report describes calibration techniques developed over the past three years for the WHOI/Brown CTD in the Moored Array Program. Comparison is made with classical methods of hydrography for stations obtained in the ...
