Results from an analysis of the Southampton Oceanography Centre (SOC) global wind stress climatology, which is based on in situ reports for the period 1980––93, are presented. The accuracy of the SOC stresses has been assessed at several locations by comparison of individual monthly means with...
Quasi-Lagrangian trajectories of 26 sound fixing and ranging (SOFAR) floats have been collected near a depth of 700 m in the Central North Atlantic between 1983 and 1989, aiming at studying the influence of the Mid-Atlantic ridge on the large-scale intermediate circulation. Launched as tight...
Part I of this paper has given a descriptive view of the trajectories of 26 SOFAR floats drifting near 700-m depth in the central North Atlantic during the mid-1980s, as part of the TOPOGULF experiment. Here an Eulerian analysis of the 53.4 collected float years is performed by grouping data in...
This study looks at the behavior of fluid particles/parcels that move along isopycnic surfaces. The aim is to show that the diffusive process of mixing by eddies causes such particles to move toward regions of greater isopycnic layer thickness or, equivalently, weaker stratification. This is...
Sea surface elevation and bottom pressure anomalies due to thermohaline forcing are examined through analytical and numerical models, including Boussinesq and non-Boussinesq models. It is shown that Boussinesq approximations can introduce noticeable errors, depending on the spatial and temporal...
A two-dimensional numerical model is used to study the response to upwelling- and downwelling-favorable winds on a shelf with a strong pycnocline. During upwelling or downwelling, the pycnocline intersects the surface or bottom, forming a front that moves offshore. The characteristics of the...
