Madden-Julian Oscillation and sea level: Local and remote forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-01)
The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is the dominant mode of atmospheric variability in the tropical atmosphere on intraseasonal time scales (i.e., weeks to seasons). This study examines the connection between the MJO and ...
A modified galerkin-spectral model for three-dimensional, barotropic, wind-driven shelf circulation
The authors describe an efficient numerical scheme for calculating wind-driven currents on the continental shelf. Our scheme is based on the spectral approach introduced by Heaps and subsequently modified by Lardner. The ...
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 ...
A description of water types on the Mackenzie Shelf of the Beaufort Sea during winter
For a number of years during the 1980s, observations of the physical and chemical properties of seawater in the southeastern Beaufort Sea have been acquired in late winter. The most complete data set, from 1987, has been ...
