New production in the warm waters of the Tropical Pacific Ocean
The average depth-integrated rate of new production in the tropical Pacific Ocean was estimated from a calculation of horizontal and vertical nitrate balance over the region enclosed by the climatological 26 degree C ...
A relationship between heat transfer to sea ice and temperature-salinity properties of Arctic Ocean waters
It is demonstrated that the characteristic temperature-salinity relationship shown by thermocline waters of the Arctic Ocean can be reproduced using a simple model based on transfer of heat directly from these waters to ...
Surface heat flux, horizontal advection, and the seasonal evolution of water temperature on the Scotian Shelf
Seasonal temperature variations on the Scotian Shelf penetrate to a depth of about 75 m. The net surface heat flux (Q) can explain about 85% of the annual cycle in the rate of change of mean temperature over this depth ...
