Correction to “Intraseasonal variability near 10°N in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean”
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-03-16)
A study of the large scale circulation and water mass formation in the Nordic seas and Arctic Ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-10)
In this thesis, production of dense water that feeds the dense overflows across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge has been considered. A new circulation scheme is developed which is consistent with the water masses, currents ...
Horizontal advection, diffusion, and plankton spectra at the sea surface
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-02-04)
Plankton patchiness is ubiquitous in the oceans, and various physical and biological processes have been proposed as its generating mechanisms. However, a coherent statement on the problem is missing, because of both a ...
On the characteristics of Circumpolar Deep Water intrusions to the west Antarctic Peninsula Continental Shelf
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-19)
Hydrographic and current velocity observations collected from March 2001 to February 2003 on the west Antarctic Peninsula shelf as part of the Southern Ocean Global Ecosystems Dynamics program are used to characterize ...
What do paleo-geochemical tracers tell us about the deep ocean circulation during the last ice age?
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
Paleo-tracers such as carbon 13 and cadmium show that the deep Atlantic was enriched in nutrients during the Last Ice Age. The conventionally accepted interpretation of these higher nutrient levels is that a reduction ...
Northern Monterey Bay upwelling shadow front : observations of a coastally and surface-trapped buoyant plume
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-10)
During the upwelling season in central California, northwesterly winds along the coast produce a strong upwelling jet that originates at Point Año Nuevo and flows southward across the mouth of Monterey Bay. A convergent ...
A thin layer of phytoplankton observed in the Philippine Sea with a synthetic moored array of autonomous gliders
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-23)
A synthetic moored array composed of five buoyancy-propelled autonomous underwater gliders was used to characterize mesoscale variability and phytoplankton distribution in a 100 km × 100 km domain in the Philippine Sea ...
Circulation and water mass transformation in a model of the Chukchi Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-11)
The circulation and water mass transformation in a regional ocean-ice model of the Chukchi Sea are discussed. The model has horizontal resolution of O(4 km), is forced by fluxes derived from daily NCEP reanalysis fields, ...
Mixing at the head of a canyon : a laboratory investigation of fluid exchanges in a rotating, stratified basin
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-05)
Observations indicate that oceanic mixing is intensified near the head of submarine canyons. How the presence of canyon walls affects the local production and distribution of mixed fluid is an open question. These dynamics ...
Observations of near-inertial current variability on the New England shelf
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-17)
Observations from the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) moored array (deployed from August 1996 through June 1997) and supplemental moored observations are used to describe near-inertial current variability over the New ...
