The pattern of disturbance left by internal wave groups traveling in a uniformly stratified ocean is examined. Particular attention is given to the temporal and spatial reoccurrence of extreme values of some parameter Q, such as the Richardson number or the wave slope, which may determine, for...
Seasonal sea ice, which plays a pivotal role in air––sea interaction in the Weddell Sea (a region of large deep-water formation with potential impact on climate), depends critically on heat flux from the deep ocean. During the austral winter of 1994, an intensive process-oriented field program...
Convection experiments were carried out in a rectangular tank as a model of oceanic meridional overturning circulation. The objective was finding a relation between the meridional heat flux and thermal forcing. To make the meridional heat flux estimate possible, the heat flux was fixed at one...
Numerical simulations of the local equatorial ocean response to idealized westerly wind burst (WWB) forcing are described. In particular, the authors examine the development and evolution of the subsurface westward jet (SSWJ) that has been observed to accompany these wind events. This westward...
Hydrographic observations and current measurements with a Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler over the continental shelf––slope junction northeast of Taiwan during 10––17 August 1994 allow the construction of the mesoscale flow pattern generated by the collision of the Kuroshio and a...
An expression is derived for the surface salt input needed to induce complete convective overturning of a polar water column consisting of 1) a layer of sea ice, 2) a freezing temperature mixed layer, 3) a pycnocline with linearly varying temperature and salinity, and 4) deep water with fixed...
