The observations of sea level at the annual frequency in the Gulf of California are reproduced both in amplitude and phase with a horizontal two-dimensional linear two-layer model. The main forcing agents through which variability is explained are wind stress and the action of the Pacific Ocean,...
A four-dimensional variational method is used to examine the extent to which a time sequence of altimeter measurements can determine the subsurface flow in a linear multilayer model of the tropical Pacific Ocean. The experiments are all of the identical-twin type. Complete maps of sea level...
A ten-year time series (1984––1993) of repeat hydrographic sections from offshore Abaco Island, the Bahamas (26.5°°N), is used to define the mean and time dependent characteristics of the deep western boundary current (DWBC). The DWBC flow is divided into four vertical layers based on...
Based on Longuet-Higgins’’s theory of the probability distribution of wave amplitude and wave period and on some observations, a new probability density function (PDF) of ocean surface slopes is derived. It is where ζζ x and ζζ y are the slope components in upwind and crosswind directions,...
The sensitivity of the separation of the western boundary current of an idealized single gyre circulation to the specification of various model parameters is investigated through a series of quasigeostrophic simulations. The model parameters considered are the value of ββ , bottom topography,...
Measurements of velocity, hydrography, surface meteorology, and microstructure were made through several squall events during a westerly wind burst that occurred in the Western Pacific warm pool in December 1992. Sustained wind forcing generated a weakly stratified turbulent surface layer that...
This paper describes a series of four experiments, each run for 10 years at 1°° ×× 1°° resolution on a North Atlantic domain, designed to illuminate the sensitivity of a Bryan––Cox-type ocean model to changes in the representation of the ridges that restrict the flow of dense, deep water out of...
