Ocean data assimilation systems for GODAE
(The Oceanography Society, 2009-09)
Ocean data assimilation has matured to the point that observations are now routinely combined with model forecasts to produce a variety of ocean products. Approaches to ocean data assimilation vary widely both in terms ...
Earth science – oceanography
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
Satellite oceanography began with the Gemini XII flight in November 1966. From a Hasselblad camera mounted in the pilot’s window large internal waves in the eastern tropical Atlantic were photographed via sunglitter for ...
Annual cycles of sea level and sea surface temperature in the western Mediterranean Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-01)
In the western Mediterranean Sea, sea level variations are the result of seasonal steric effect, atmospheric forcing and mesoscale circulation activity, particularly in the Alboran and Algerian basins, as well as water ...
Application of a hybrid EnKF-OI to ocean forecasting
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-10-01)
Data assimilation methods often use an ensemble to represent the background error covariance. Two approaches are commonly used; a simple one with a static ensemble, or a more advanced one with a dynamic ensemble. The latter ...
Intermediate water from the Greenland Sea in the Faroe Bank Channel : spreading of released sulphur hexafluoride
The Faroe Bank Channel is the deepest passage for dense water leaving the Nordic Seas into the North Atlantic. The contribution to this part of the Greenland-Scotland Overflow by intermediate water from the Greenland ...
Tracer-derived transit time of the waters in the eastern Nordic Seas
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2005-08-25)
The spatial-temporal distribution of the anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plant in the Irish Sea is simulated using a global version of the Miami Isopycnic ...
Decreasing Arctic Sea Ice Mirrors Increasing CO2 on Decadal Time Scale
(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2008-11-16)
Arctic sea ice is a keystone indicator of greenhouse-gas induced global climate change, which is expected to be amplified in the Arctic. Here we directly compare observed variations in arctic sea-ice extent and CO2 since ...
Greenland Ice Sheet Elevation Ehange in Winter and Influence of Atmospheric Teleconnections in the Northern Hemisphere
(Institute of atmospheric physics, Chinese academy of sciences, Science press, 2009-11-16)
Measuring Ocean Salinity with ESA’s SMOS Mission – Advancing the Science
(European Space Agency, 2002-08)
