      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 ...
    • Global patterns of diapycnal mixing from measurements of the turbulent dissipation rate 

      Waterhouse, Amy F.; MacKinnon, Jennifer A.; Nash, Jonathan D.; Alford, Matthew H.; Kunze, Eric; Simmons, Harper L.; Polzin, Kurt L.; St. Laurent, Louis C.; Sun, Oliver M. T.; Pinkel, Robert; Talley, Lynne D.; Whalen, Caitlin B.; Huussen, Tycho N.; Carter, Glenn S.; Fer, Ilker; Waterman, Stephanie N.; Naveira Garabato, Alberto C.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Lee, Craig M. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-07)
      The authors present inferences of diapycnal diffusivity from a compilation of over 5200 microstructure profiles. As microstructure observations are sparse, these are supplemented with indirect measurements of mixing obtained ...
    • Highly resolved observations and simulations of the ocean response to a hurricane 

      Sanford, Thomas B.; Price, James F.; Girton, James B.; Webb, Douglas C. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-07-07)
      An autonomous, profiling float called EM-APEX was developed to provide a quantitative and comprehensive description of the ocean side of hurricane-ocean interaction. EM-APEX measures temperature, salinity and pressure to ...
    • The Kuroshio and Luzon Undercurrent east of Luzon Island 

      Lien, Ren-Chieh; Ma, Barry; Lee, Craig M.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Mensah, Vigan; Centurioni, Luca R.; Cornuelle, Bruce D.; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Gordon, Arnold L.; Chang, Ming-Huei; Jayne, Steven R.; Yang, Yiing-Jang (The Oceanography Society, 2015-12)
      Current structure, transport, and water mass properties of the northward-flowing Kuroshio and the southward-flowing Luzon Undercurrent (LU) were observed for nearly one year, June 8, 2012–June 4, 2013, across the Kuroshio ...
    • The LatMix summer campaign : submesoscale stirring in the upper ocean 

      Shcherbina, Andrey Y.; Sundermeyer, Miles A.; Kunze, Eric; D’Asaro, Eric; Badin, Gualtiero; Birch, Daniel; Brunner-Suzuki, Anne-Marie E. G.; Callies, Joern; Cervantes, Brandy T. Kuebel; Claret, Mariona; Concannon, Brian; Early, Jeffrey; Ferrari, Raffaele; Goodman, Louis; Harcourt, Ramsey R.; Klymak, Jody M.; Lee, Craig M.; Lelong, M.-Pascale; Levine, Murray D.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Mahadevan, Amala; McWilliams, James C.; Molemaker, M. Jeroen; Mukherjee, Sonaljit; Nash, Jonathan D.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Pierce, Stephen D.; Ramachandran, Sanjiv; Samelson, Roger M.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Shearman, R. Kipp; Skyllingstad, Eric D.; Smith, K. Shafer; Tandon, Amit; Taylor, John R.; Terray, Eugene A.; Thomas, Leif N.; Ledwell, James R. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-08)
      Lateral stirring is a basic oceanographic phenomenon affecting the distribution of physical, chemical, and biological fields. Eddy stirring at scales on the order of 100 km (the mesoscale) is fairly well understood and ...
    • 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 ...
    • Observations of the cold wake of Typhoon Fanapi (2010)
