Atmospheric interactions with Gulf Stream Rings
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-10)
Four different problems concerning Gulf Stream Rings are considered. The first deals with the particle trajectories of, and advection-diffusion by, a dynamic model of a Ring. It is found that the streaklines computed ...
On the calculation of wind stress curl over open ocean areas from synoptic meteorological data with application to time dependent ocean circulation
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-02)
The method used by N. P. Fofonoff for estimating wind stress curl from surface atmospheric pressure maps is developed for use with the National Meterological Center analysis grid. A formula is developed relating the wind ...
An all-thermistor pyrgeometer
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-12)
The design and testing of an all-thermistor (no thermopile) pyrgeometer (LWT) is descrbed. After calibration by comparison with a Kipp & Zonen CG4, 9.2 months of data show mean differences of order 1-2 W m-2 with standard ...
Endowments and new institutions for long-term observations
(Oceanography Society, 2007-12)
An ever-increasing volume of publications on the changing ocean environment underscores the requirement for long-term observations to understand and predict ocean and climate change. Such observations must be ...
Salinity and the global water cycle
(Oceanography Society, 2008-03)
Eddies and friction : removal of vorticity from the wind-driven gyre
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-06)
Inertial terms dominate the single-gyre ocean model and prevent western-intensification when the viscosity is small. This occurs long before the oceanically-appropriate parameter range. It is demonstrated here that the ...
Eddy forcing of the mean circulation in the western North Atlantic
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-08)
This thesis addresses several aspects of the problem of determining the effect of the low-frequency eddy variability on the mean circulation of the Western North Atlantic. A framework for this study is first established ...
Baroclinic vortices over a sloping bottom
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
Nonlinear quasigeostrophic flows in two layers over a topographic slope are considered. The evolution depends on the size of two parameters which indicate the degree of nonlinearity at depth. The first measures the ...
HYDROBASE : a database of hydrographic stations and tools for climatological analysis
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-03)
This report documents the organization, functionality, and algorithms of a software package which operates as a database manager and toolset for climatological analysis of hydrographic station data. It details the methods ...
RAFOS float processing at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-01)
This report and its accompanying webpage (http://www.whoi.edu/science/PO/rafos/index.htm) describe the processing steps for RAFOS floats, from subscribing to Service Argos to plotting the final data for a data report. ...
