Predicting Atlantic seasonal hurricane activity using outgoing longwave radiation over Africa
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-07-08)
Seasonal hurricane activity is a function of the amount of initial disturbances (e.g., easterly waves) and the background environment in which they develop into tropical storms (i.e., the main development region). Focusing ...
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. ...

Changes in ocean heat, carbon content, and ventilation : a review of the first decade of GO-SHIP Global Repeat Hydrography
The ocean, a central component of Earth’s climate system, is changing. Given the global scope of these changes, highly accurate measurements of physical and biogeochemical properties need to be conducted over the full water ...
Satellite and in situ salinity : understanding near-surface stratification and subfootprint variability
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-08-31)
Remote sensing of salinity using satellite-mounted microwave radiometers provides new perspectives for studying ocean dynamics and the global hydrological cycle. Calibration and validation of these measurements is challenging ...
Can Australian multiyear droughts and wet spells be generated in the absence of oceanic variability?
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-08-19)
Anomalous conditions in the tropical oceans, such as those related to El Niño–Southern Oscillation and the Indian Ocean dipole, have been previously blamed for extended droughts and wet periods in Australia. Yet the extent ...
Lateral organic carbon supply to the deep Canada Basin
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-06-12)
Understanding the processes driving the carbon cycle in the Arctic Ocean is important for assessing the impacts of the predicted rapid and amplified climate change in this region. We analyzed settling particle samples ...
Biological control of the vernal population increase of Calanus finmarchicus on Georges Bank
An adjoint data assimilation approach was used to quantify the physical and biological controls on Calanus finmarchicus N3 to C stages on Georges Bank and its nearby environs. The mean seasonal cycle of vertically-averaged ...
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 ...
