Mass, heat and nutrient fluxes in the Atlantic Ocean determined by inverse methods
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-03)
Inverse methods are applied to historical hydrographic data to address two aspects of the general circulation of the Atlantic Ocean. The method allows conservation statements for mass and other properties, along with a ...
The East Greenland Spill Jet as an important component of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
The recently discovered East Greenland Spill Jet is a bottom-intensified current on the upper continental slope south of Denmark Strait, transporting intermediate density water equatorward. Until now the Spill Jet has ...
Distribution and diel vertical movements of mesopelagic scattering layers in the Red Sea
The mesopelagic zone of the Red Sea represents an extreme environment due to low food concentrations, high temperatures and low oxygen waters. Nevertheless, a 38 kHz echosounder identified at least four distinct ...
A modified atmospheric non-hydrostatic model on low aspect ratio grids : part II
(International Meteorological Institute, 2013-06-28)
Sun et al. (2012) proposed a modified non-hydrostatic model (MNH), in which the left-hand side of the continuity equation is multiplied by a parameter δ(4 ≤ δ≤16 in the article) to suppress high-frequency acoustic waves. ...
Investigating the eddy diffusivity concept in the coastal ocean
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-06-29)
This paper aims to test the validity, utility, and limitations of the lateral eddy diffusivity concept in a coastal environment through analyzing data from coupled drifter and dye releases within the footprint of a ...
Reply to “Comments on ‘The interaction of an eastward-flowing current and an island : sub- and supercritical flow’”

Mixing across the Arctic Ocean : microstructure observations during the Beringia 2005 Expedition
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-04-30)
Turbulent-scale temperature and conductivity were measured during the pan-arctic Beringia 2005 Expedition. The rates of dissipation of thermal variance and diapycnal diffusivities are calculated along a section from Alaska ...
Boundary mixing in Orkney Passage outflow
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-16)
One of the most remarkable features of contemporary oceanic climate change is the warming and contraction of Antarctic Bottom Water over much of global ocean abyss. These signatures represent changes in ventilation mediated ...
Characterizing the eddy field in the Arctic Ocean halocline
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-22)
Ice-Tethered Profilers (ITP), deployed in the Arctic Ocean between 2004 and 2013, have provided detailed temperature and salinity measurements of an assortment of halocline eddies. A total of 127 mesoscale eddies have been ...
Eddy-driven sediment transport in the Argentine Basin : is the height of the Zapiola Rise hydrodynamically controlled?
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-03-27)
In this study, we address the question whether eddy-driven transports in the Argentine Basin can be held responsible for enhanced sediment accumulation over the Zapiola Rise, hence accounting for the existence and growth ...
