Velocity field of the western entrance to the Barents Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-13)
By the use of 4-year long records from moored current meters between 71°30′N and 73°30′N of the western entrance to the Barents Sea, the velocity field of the Atlantic inflow is examined. The mean velocity field shows the ...
Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
The impact of mean state errors on equatorial Atlantic interannual variability in a climate model
(American Geophysical Union, 2015-02-23)
Observations show that the Equatorial Atlantic Zonal Mode (ZM) obeys similar physics to the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO): positive Bjerknes and delayed negative feedbacks. This implies the ZM may be predictable on ...
Toward an optimal inversion method for synthetic aperture radar wind retrieval
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-08-01)
In recent years, particular efforts have been made to derive wind fields over the oceans from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. In contrast with the scatterometer, the SAR has a higher spatial resolution and therefore ...
