This study provides a climatology of the circulation and water mass distribution by using historical data combined with observations from dozens of recent cruises near the Philippine coast. The most striking results are related to the poleward contraction of the subtropical gyre on denser...
The linear instability of circular quasigeostrophic vortices with horizontal cross sections of angular velocity identical to those that fit the observations of submesoscale eddies in the ocean is investigated analytically and numerically. The theoretical necessary conditions for instability are...
The evolution of a buoyancy-driven intermediate water current along an idealized continental slope is investigated using a three-dimensional primitive equation ocean model. The outflow current, originating in a marginal sea, flows northward along a linear sloping bottom where it undergoes...

The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and Institut Francais Pour la Recherche et l’’Exploitation de la Mer European Remote-Sensing Satellite, named IFR2, surface wind velocity data products are compared during July 1995 over the Arabian Sea. Substantial differences...
The dynamical control of the eddy-induced transport is investigated in a series of idealized eddy-resolving experiments. When there is an active eddy field, the eddy-induced transport is found to correlate with isopycnic gradients of potential vorticity, rather than gradients of layer thickness....
Interdecadal variability in sea level pressure (SLP) and sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in the Pacific Ocean was ““quasiperiodic”” from 1900––91. The coherent variability of this phenomenon is investigated using gridded observational data from the turn of the century (SST and...
The vertical structure of the variability in the equatorial Pacific in a high-resolution ocean general circulation model (OGCM) simulation for 1985––94 is investigated. Near the equator the linear vertical modes are estimated at each grid point and time step of the OGCM simulation. The...
