Tide-surge interaction off the east coast of Canada and northeastern United States
 Sea level observations and a dynamical model are used to investigate tide-surge interaction in the coastal waters off the east coast of Canada and northern USA. The study is motivated in part by the need to improve ...
Modeling events of sea-surface variability using spectral nudging in an eddy permitting model of the northeast Pacific Ocean
[ 1] Eddies are an important part of the current system that hugs the coasts of British Columbia and Alaska. The ability of "spectral nudging'' to improve the eddy statistics determined from model simulations of this current ...
Predicting the frequency of storm surges and extreme sea levels in the northwest Atlantic
 A 40 year hindcast of storm surges in the northwest Atlantic and adjacent shelf seas is performed using a 2-D nonlinear barotropic ocean model forced by realistic 6 hourly winds and air pressures. This hindcast is used ...
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 ...
Predicting mesoscale variability of the North Atlantic using a physically motivated scheme for assimilating altimeter and Argo observations
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-07)
A computationally efficient scheme is described for assimilating sea level measured by altimeters and vertical profiles of temperature and salinity measured by Argo floats. The scheme is based on a transformation of ...
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 ...
