  • Estimates of cabbeling in the global ocean 

    Schanze, Julian J.; Schmitt, Raymond W. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-04)
    Owing to the larger thermal expansion coefficient at higher temperatures, more buoyancy is put into the ocean by heating than is removed by cooling at low temperatures. The authors show that, even with globally balanced ...
  • The global oceanic freshwater cycle : a state-of-the-art quantification 

    Schanze, Julian J.; Schmitt, Raymond W.; Yu, Lisan (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2010-05-01)
    The current capabilities of quantifying the oceanic freshwater cycle are shown based on new observations from satellite data and re-analysis models for evaporation and precipitation over the ocean. For this purpose, we ...
  • The production of temperature and salinity variance and covariance : implications for mixing 

    Schanze, Julian J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
    Large-scale thermal forcing and freshwater fluxes play an essential role in setting temperature and salinity in the ocean. A number of recent estimates of the global oceanic freshwater balance as well as the global oceanic ...
