Evaluating two numerical advection schemes in HYCOM for eddy-resolving modelling of the Agulhas Current
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-06-02)
A 4th order advection scheme is applied in a nested eddy-resolving Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) of the greater Agulhas Current system for the purpose of testing advanced numerics as a means for improving the model ...
Satellite detection of natural films on the ocean surface
(American Geophysical Union, 1996-11-01)
Natural films on the ocean surface influence air-sea fluxes of momentum, heat, and gas. It is therefore essential to be able to map the geographical extent and variability of such films to determine the resulting impact ...
Microwave Study programs of Air-Ice-Ocean interactive processes in the Seasonal Ice Zone of the Greenland and Barents Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 1992)
Describes the use of satellite ice data into a working technology for the satellite data sets of the recent past and immediate future. Chapters cover basic observations, modeling, geophysical interpretation, and using data ...
Observation and Simulation of Ice Tongues and Vortex Pairs in the Marginal Ice Zone
(American Geophysical Union, 1994)
Recognizes the major advancements of the past decade in understanding the interactions among the polar oceans and global atmospheric and oceanic systems. This volume addresses the following topics: Polar Ocean Circulation ...
Sea ice monitoring in the Arctic using satellite SAR images
(Luleå University of Technology and NERSC, 2007)
Heat in the Barents Sea: Transport, storage, and surface fluxes
(Copernicus Publications, 2010-01-11)
A column model is set up for the Barents Sea to explore sensitivity of surface fluxes and heat storage from varying ocean heat transport. Mean monthly ocean transport and atmospheric forcing are synthesised and force the ...

The Effect of Diapycnal Mixing on the Ventilation and CFC-11 Uptake in the Southern Ocean
(Science Press, 2004-03-04)
The Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) is used to investigate the effect of diapycnal mixing on the oceanic uptake of CFC-11 and the ventilation of the surface waters in the Southern Ocean (south of 45°S). ...
