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 ...
A model of the circulation on the outer Scotian shelf with open boundary conditions inferred by data assimilation
(American Geophys. Union, 1998-12/15)
The circulation on Western Bank is described using data collected in spring 1991 and 1992 as part of an interdisciplinary study of the early life history of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua). The mean circulation over the crest ...
Subtidal circulation on the Scotian Shelf: assessing the hindcast skill of a linear, barotropic model
(American Geophys. Union, 1997-11/15)
Currents measured during the winter of 1985-1986 by four moorings on the inner Scotian Shelf are used to assess the hindcast skill of a three-dimensional circulation model forced by local wind stress and coastal sea level. ...
Mean surface topography of the northwest Atlantic: Comparison of estimates based on satellite, terrestrial gravity, and oceanographic observations
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-07/08)
The accuracy of a new mean sea surface topography (MSST) of the northwest Atlantic is assessed. The MSST is estimated from 12 years of altimeter observations referenced with respect to a new regional geoid based on a blend ...
