A double-diffusive interface tank for dynamic-response studies
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-01)
A large tank capable of long-term maintenance of a sharp temperature-salinity interface has been developed and applied to measurements of the dynamical response of oceanographic sensors. A two-layer salt-stratified system ...
Buoyancy-forced circulations in shallow marginal seas
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-07)
The properties of water mass transformation and the thermohaline circulation in shallow marginal seas with topography and subject to surface cooling are discussed in the context of an eddy-resolving primitive equation model ...
Greenland's Island Rule and the Arctic Ocean circulation
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2007-09)
In order to explain observed southward water transport of 2-3 Sv through Davis Strait, a simple extension of Godfrey's (1989) Island Rule and a 2-D idealized numerical model simulations were made for the flow around ...
Reply to “Comments on ‘The interaction of an eastward-flowing current and an island : sub- and supercritical flow’”

A report of data and preliminary analysis from Discovery 247, a process study of the Faroe Bank Channel overflow
CTD, XCP and LADCP data acquired during the June 2000 Discovery cruise 247 to Faroe Bank Channel are shown in a variety of graphical forms. Most of the data were collected as part of 17 sections run in a direction mainly ...
An experimental study of a mesoscale vortex colliding with topography of varying geometry in a rotating fluid
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2004-09)
The interaction of a self-propagating barotropic cyclonic vortex with an obstacle has been investigated and the conditions for a vortex to bifurcate into two vortices determined. As in a previous study, after a self-propagating ...
Knorr 147 leg v hydrographic data report : Labrador Sea Deep Convection Experiment
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-05)
Between 2 February and 20 March 1997, the first phase of the Labrador Sea Deep Convection Experiment was carried out on R/V Knorr, during which 127 hydrographic stations were occupied throughout the Labrador basin. This ...
Air-sea interaction for the International Indian Ocean Expedition
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1968-02)
A C-54Q aircraft was bailed to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to participate in the International Indian Ocean Expedition and other research projects in the fields of meteorology and oceanography. With the joint ...
Corrigendum to "Laser vision: lidar as a transformative tool to advance critical zone science" published in Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci., 19, 2881–2897, 2015
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2015-06-24)
Continuously stratified nonlinear low-mode internal tides
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2008-05)
A model for hydrostatic, fully nonlinear, low-mode internal tides is extended to continuously stratified conditions. Periodic inertia-gravity solutions of permanent form are shown to exist only for a limited range of ...
