Shelfbreak frontal eddies over the continental slope north of Cape Hatteras
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-02-20)
Shelfbreak and slope eddies have been implicated as important agents in the exchange of water between the shelf and slope domains of the Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB). Here we present temperature, salinity, and velocity data ...
Ocean turbulence, III : new GISS vertical mixing scheme
We have found a new way to express the solutions of the RSM (Reynolds Stress Model) equations that allows us to present the turbulent diffusivities for heat, salt and momentum in a way that is considerably simpler and ...
Eddy transport of organic carbon and nutrients from the Chukchi Shelf : impact on the upper halocline of the western Arctic Ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-04)
In September 2004 a detailed physical and chemical survey was conducted on an anticyclonic, cold-core eddy located seaward of the Chukchi Shelf in the western Arctic Ocean. The eddy had a diameter of ∼16 km and was centered ...
Dynamical roles of mixed layer in regulating the meridional mass/heat fluxes
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-17)
The mixed layer is an important component of the oceanic circulation system. Recent progress in energetics of the oceanic circulation suggests that the amount of external mechanical energy available for mixing is directly ...
Preface to special section on Arctic Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (AOMIP) Studies and Results
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-26)
Age characteristics of a shelf-break eddy in the western Arctic and implications for shelf-basin exchange
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-02-22)
Radioisotope evaluation of a cold-core, anticyclonic eddy surveyed in September 2004 on the Chukchi Sea continental slope was used to determine its age since formation over the shelf environment. Because the eddy can be ...
Role of gyration in the oceanic general circulation : Atlantic Ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-03-14)
Wind-driven gyres transport volume and heat in the meridional direction, which is an important component of the climate system. The contribution of wind-driven gyres to both poleward volume and heat fluxes can be clearly ...
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 ...
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 ...
