The Long Term Upper Ocean Study (Lotus) : cruise summary and hydrographic data report, Oceanus 119 - May 1982
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-02)
OCEANUS cruise number 119 (6-14 May, 1982) was the seventh in a series of cruises to the Long Term Upper Ocean Study (LOTUS) area centered at 34°N, 70°W. During this cruise five moorings were set at the LOTUS site; four ...
A compilation of moored current meter observations : volume I
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1965-08)
Summaries of current measurements made with Richardson current meters at three moored stations in the Western North Atlantic are presented. Averaged quantities are presented in the form of computer-plotted curves.
A compilation of moored current meter and wind observations, volume VIII (1970 array experiment)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-02)
Summaries of wind and current measurements made with current meters and wind recorders by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution during June, July and August of 1970 are presented. Averaged quantities are presented ...
Stratus 15 fifteenth setting of the Stratus Ocean Reference Station cruise on board RV Cabo de Hornos June 15 – 29, 2016 Valparaiso, Chile – Valparaiso, Chile
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-10)
The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing climate-quality records of surface meteorology, air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
Interannual variability of the South Indian Countercurrent
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-05-26)
In the present work, we investigate the interannual variability of the South Indian Countercurrent (SICC), a major and still understudied current of the Indian Ocean circulation. To characterize the interannual variability ...
The Long Term Upper Ocean Study (Lotus) : cruise summary and hydrographic data report, Oceanus 129--October 1982
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-08)
OCEANUS cruise number 129 (28 October-4 November, 1982) was the eighth in a series of cruises to the Long Term Upper Ocean Study (LOTUS) area centered at 34°N, 70°W. In the LOTUS area seven SOFAR floats were launched, two ...
Variations of the global net air–sea heat flux during the “hiatus” period (2001–10)
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-05-15)
An assessment is made of the mean and variability of the net air–sea heat flux, Qnet, from four products (ECCO, OAFlux–CERES, ERA-Interim, and NCEP1) over the global ice-free ocean from January 2001 to December 2010. For ...
How well would modern-day oceanic property distributions be known with paleoceanographic-like observations?
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-04-08)
Compilations of paleoceanographic observations for the deep sea now contain a few hundred points along the oceanic margins, mid-ocean ridges, and bathymetric highs, where seawater conditions are indirectly recorded in the ...
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 ...
Production and destruction of eddy kinetic energy in forced submesoscale eddy-resolving simulations
We study the production and dissipation of the eddy kinetic energy (EKE) in a submesoscale eddy field forced with downfront winds using the Process Study Ocean Model (PSOM) with a horizontal grid resolution of 0.5 km. We ...
