  • Circulation and intrusions northeast of Taiwan : chasing and predicting uncertainty in the cold dome 

    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 Jiang; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Observations of the cold wake of Typhoon Fanapi (2010) 

    Mrvaljevic, Rosalinda K.; Black, Peter G.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Chang, Ya-Ting; D'Asaro, Eric A.; Jayne, Steven R.; Lee, Craig M.; Lien, Ren-Chieh; Lin, I.-I.; Morzel, Jan; Niiler, Pearn P.; Rainville, Luc; Sanford, Thomas B. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-01-19)
    Several tens of thousands of temperature profiles are used to investigate the thermal evolution of the cold wake of Typhoon Fanapi, 2010. Typhoon Fanapi formed a cold wake in the Western North Pacific Ocean on 18 September ...
  • Ocean response to a hurricane, part II : data tabulations and numerical modeling 

    Price, James F.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Forristall, George Z. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
    Field observations of the ocean's forced stage response to three hurricanes, Norbert (1984), Josephine (1984) and Gloria (1985), are analyzed and presented in a storm-centered coordinate system. All three hurricanes had ...
  • Typhoon-ocean interaction in the western North Pacific : Part 1 

    D'Asaro, Eric A.; Black, Peter G.; Centurioni, Luca R.; Harr, Patrick; Jayne, Steven R.; Lin, I.-I.; Lee, Craig M.; Morzel, Jan; Mrvaljevic, Rosalinda K.; Niiler, Pearn P.; Rainville, Luc; Sanford, Thomas B.; Tang, Tswen Yung (The Oceanography Society, 2011-12)
    The application of new technologies has allowed oceanographers and meteorologists to study the ocean beneath typhoons in detail. Recent studies in the western Pacific Ocean reveal new insights into the influence of the ...
  • Upper-ocean response to Hurricane Frances (2004) observed by Profiling EM-APEX floats 

    Sanford, Thomas B.; Price, James F.; Girton, James B. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
    Three autonomous profiling Electromagnetic Autonomous Profiling Explorer (EM-APEX) floats were air deployed one day in advance of the passage of Hurricane Frances (2004) as part of the Coupled Boundary Layer Air–Sea Transfer ...
