Improved meteorological measurements from buoys and ships (IMET) : preliminary comparison of precipitation sensors
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-10)
Rainfall data obtained from an optical rain gauge and a capacitive siphon rain gauge are analyzed and discussed. These sensors were developed for unattended use and are being considered for use at sea on ships and buoys.
Four current meter models compared in strong currents in Drake Passage
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-10)
Seven current meters representing four models on a stiffly buoyed mooring were placed for an 11-month deployment to intercompare their velocity measurements: two vector-measuring current meters (VMCMs), two Aanderaa recording ...
Improved meteorological measurements from buoys and ships (IMET) : preliminary report on barometric pressure sensors
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-12)
Stability tests over periods ranging from 3 to 19 months have been carried out on Paroscientific models 215-AT and 760-15A, AIR DB-1A, Rosemount 1201F1B, Setra 270 and Heise 623 electronic barometers. The Paroscientific ...
Chaotic advection in a steady, three-dimensional, Ekman-driven eddy
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-12-05)
We investigate and quantify stirring due to chaotic advection within a steady, three-dimensional, Ekman-driven, rotating cylinder flow. The flow field has vertical overturning and horizontal swirling motion, and is an ...
Interannual variability of wintertime temperature on the inner continental shelf of the Middle Atlantic Bight
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-09-17)
The shallow depth of the inner continental shelf allows for rapid adjustment of the ocean to air-sea exchange of heat and momentum compared with offshore locations. Observations during 2001–2013 are used to evaluate the ...
A tomographic view of the Gulf Stream southern recirculation gyre at 38°N, 55°W
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-02)
Reciprocal acoustic transmissions made in a region just south of the Gulf Stream are analyzed to determine the structure and variability of temperature, current velocity, and vorticity fields at the northern extent of ...
Acoustic tomography in the Straits of Florida
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
Variability of the Florida Current has been monitored via acoustic tomography. A reciprocal tomography experiment was conducted in the eastern half of the Florida Straits during mid October and November, 1983. A triangular ...
Evaluation of GEOSAT data and application to variability of the Northeast Pacific Ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-09)
A portion of the northeast Pacific ocean was chosen within which to evaluate and use altimetric data from the U.S. Navy Geodetic Satellite GEOSAT. The zero-order accuracy of the major GEOSAT geophysical data record (GDR) ...
Impact of surface forcing on Southern Hemisphere atmospheric blocking in the Australia–New Zealand sector
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-11-01)
Characteristics of atmospheric blocking in the Southern Hemisphere (SH) are explored in atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM) simulations with the Community Atmosphere Model, version 3, with a particular focus on ...
Diffusive vertical heat flux in the Canada Basin of the Arctic Ocean inferred from moored instruments
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-01-22)
Observational studies have shown that an unprecedented warm anomaly has recently affected the temperature of the Atlantic Water (AW) layer lying at intermediate depth in the Arctic Ocean. Using observations from four ...
