Tropical instability waves and tropical instability vortices (TIVs) exert major controls on ocean dynamics, thermodynamics, and biology on intraseasonal to seasonal time scales. To understand the fundamental mechanisms at play, a Lagrangian analysis of the 3D circulation of westward-propagating...
The part of the meridional overturning circulation driven by time-varying winds is usually assumed to be an Ekman flux within a mixed layer, and a depth- and laterally independent return flow beneath. For a simple linear frictional ocean model, the return flow is studied for a range of...
Analysis of results from a high-resolution general circulation model confirms the existence of a “buffering” effect in the Indo-Australian Basin in which the upper ocean receives an excess of water from February to June and releases it during the rest of the year. A similar, but significantly...
Steady flows in regions of closed geostrophic contours, such as in ocean basins or over seamounts, are examined by calculating solutions to the nonlinear quasigeostrophic and shallow-water equations with topography. For oceanically realistic choices of parameters, the solutions are asymmetric in...
