A forcing mechanism is sought for the large-scale circulation changes in the Kuroshio Extension region of the western North Pacific Ocean as inferred by TOPEX/Poseidon sea surface height (SSH) data. The low-frequency signal of the Kuroshio Extension over the last decade was characterized by a...
Wind-forced across-shelf flow on a continental shelf is often described as a two-dimensional balance between flow within a surface boundary layer generated by alongshelf winds and a compensating subsurface flow. Typically, the effects of across-shelf winds are ignored because transport in the...
The impact of a meridional gradient in sea surface temperature (warm toward the equator, cold toward the pole) on the circulation around an island is investigated. The upper-ocean eastward geostrophic flow that balances such a meridional gradient is blocked where the isotherms intersect...
