In order to describe aspects of the baroclinic dynamics in the region of the Strait of Sicily a high-resolution multilayer numerical model has been implemented in a central Mediterranean region including the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian Seas. Three layers have been considered representing water of...
A synthesis of WOCE (and other) hydrographic data shows that the deep western boundary current of Antarctic Bottom Water has a double-core structure, and that it is differentially modified during its northward transit through the Brazil Basin. At 25°°S, it descends about 200 m while continuing...
An isopycnal model coupled with a mixed layer model is used to study transformation and formation rates in the North Pacific. When annual formation rates are averaged over the entire North Pacific, a large peak in water mass formation is found at a density of approximately σσ θθ == 26 kg m −−3 ....
The distribution and circulation of the coastal Oyashio intrusion were examined with a CTD and shipboard ADCP survey conducted in the vicinity of the east coast of Japan in May 1994. The estimate of mixing ratios in the density range of 26.4––27.2 σσ θθ , assuming isopycnal mixing between the...
An objective and quantitative estimate of all mean annual interocean mass transfers together with a picture of the associated mean pathways is presented. The global ocean circulation transfers mass, heat, and salinity between the various ocean subbasins on timescales that are likely to interact...
Boundary layer separation occurs in classical fluids when the boundary layer is decelerated by an adverse pressure gradient. Here a ““separation formula”” is derived for downstream variations in the velocity, or pressure, of an ocean boundary current. The formula is implicit in the sense that it...
The sea breeze introduces harmonics of its diurnal cycle into water bodies, which can be notable for strong sea breeze and microtidal and nontidal conditions. The harmonics can be of the same magnitude as those produced by bottom friction and dominate those produced by nonlinear terms in the...
