The adjoint method of data assimilation used operationally for shelf circulation
A real-time shelf circulation model with data assimilation has been successfully used, possibly for the first time, on the outer Nova Scotian Shelf, The adjoint method was used to infer the time histories of flows across ...
A robust method for diagnosing regional shelf circulation from scattered density profiles
We present a straightforward method for estimating surface circulation on an f plane from a set of irregularly spaced vertical density profiles. The first step is to express bottom density rho(h) as the sum of a mean for ...
Extraction of tidal streams from a ship-borne acoustic Doppler current profiler using a statistical-dynamical model
We present a method for extracting the barotropic tide directly from the time-space series of horizontal velocity obtained by a ship-borne acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). The method is conceptually straightforward, ...
Effects of temperature and circulation on the population dynamics of Calanus finmarchicus in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Scotian Shelf: Study with a coupled, three-dimensional hydrodynamic, stage-based life history model
We developed a physical-biological model for the Gulf of St. Lawrence (GSL) and Scotian Shelf (SS) by coupling a stage-based life-history model of the planktonic copepod Calanus finmarchicus to a three-dimensional ocean ...
Prediction of surface currents and drifter trajectories on the inner Scotian Shelf
The predictive skill of a simple model of surface flow on the Scotian Shelf is assessed using oceanographic data collected in February 1996. The model is forced by wind stress, water density, and sea level along the open ...
