  • Min, K.-E.; Pusede, S. E.; Browne, Eleanor C.; LaFranchi, B. W.; Cohen, R. C. (Copernicus GmbH on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-06)
    Exchange of NO[subscript x] (NO+NO[subscript 2]) between the atmosphere and biosphere is important for air quality, climate change, and ecosystem nutrient dynamics. There are few direct ecosystem-scale measurements of the ...
  • Velasco, Erik; Pressley, S.; Grivicke, R.; Allwine, E.; Coons, T.; Foster, W.; Jobson, T.; Westberg, H.; Ramos, R.; Hernandez, F.; Molina, Luisa Tan; Lamb, B. (European Geosciences Union / Copernicus, 2009-10)
    Eddy covariance (EC) flux measurements of the atmosphere/surface exchange of gases over an urban area are a direct way to improve and evaluate emissions inventories, and, in turn, to better understand urban atmospheric ...
  • Waterman, Stephanie; Jayne, Steven R. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-03)
    The generation of time-mean recirculation gyres from the nonlinear rectification of an oscillatory, spatially localized vorticity forcing is examined analytically and numerically. Insights into the rectification mechanism ...
  • Waterman, Stephanie; Jayne, Steven R. (© 2011 American Meteorological Society, 2010-12)
    A theoretical study on the role of eddy-mean flow interactions in the time-mean dynamics of a zonally evolving, unstable, strongly inertial jet in a configuration and parameter regime that is relevant to oceanic western ...
  • Ferrari, Raffaele; Boccaletti, Giulio (The Oceanography Society, 2004-09)
    The oceanic surface mixed layer is where communication takes place between the oceanic reservoir of heat, freshwater, and carbon dioxide, and the overlying atmosphere in which we live. The exchange of properties and their ...
  • Mazloff, Matthew R.; Heimbach, Patrick; Wunsch, Carl (American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
    An eddy-permitting general circulation model of the Southern Ocean is fit by constrained least squares to a large observational dataset during 2005–06. Data used include Argo float profiles, CTD synoptic sections, Southern ...
  • Ferrari, Raffaele; Garabato, A. C. Naveira; Polzin, K. L. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2011-09)
    There is an ongoing debate concerning the distribution of eddy stirring across the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) and the nature of its controlling processes. The problem is addressed here by estimating the isentropic ...
  • Cerovecki, Ivana; Plumb, R. Alan; Heres, William (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
    The baroclinically unstable wind- and buoyancy-driven flow in a zonally reentrant pie-shaped sector on a sphere is numerically modeled and then analyzed using the transformed Eulerian-mean (TEM) formalism. Mean fields are ...
  • Hubbard, Amanda E.; Whyte, Dennis G.; Churchill, Randy Michael; Cziegler, Istvan; Golfinopoulos, Theodore; Hughes, Jerry W.; Rice, John E.; Bespamyatnov, I.; Greenwald, Martin J.; Howard, Nathaniel Thomas; Lipschultz, Bruce; Marmar, Earl S.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Rowan, W. L.; Terry, James L.; Alcator C-Mod Group (American Institute of Physics, 2011-05)
    We report extended studies of the I-mode regime [Whyte et al., Nucl. Fusion 50, 105005 (2010)] obtained in the Alcator C-Mod tokamak [Marmar et al., Fusion Sci. Technol. 51(3), 3261 (2007)]. This regime, usually accessed ...
  • Potter, Andrew C.; Lee, Patrick A. (American Physical Society, 2014-03)
    In mean-field descriptions of nodal d-wave superconductors, generic edges exhibit dispersionless Majorana fermion bands at zero energy. These states give rise to an extensive ground-state degeneracy, and are protected by ...
  • Subr, Kartic; Soler, Cyril; Durand, Fredo (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2009)
    We propose a new model for detail that inherently captures oscillations, a key property that distinguishes textures from individual edges. Inspired by techniques in empirical data analysis and morphological image analysis, ...
  • Hutchinson, Ian H.; Lipschultz, Bruce; McDermott, R. M.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Catto, Peter J.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Granetz, Robert S.; Greenwald, Martin J.; Labombard, Brian; Marr, K.; Rice, John E.; Whyte, Dennis G.; Alcator C-Mod Team; Reinke, Matthew Logan (American Institute of Physics, 2009-03)
    High-resolution charge-exchange recombination spectroscopic measurements of B[superscript 5+] ions have enabled the first spatially resolved calculations of the radial electric field (E[subscript r]) in the Alcator C-Mod ...
  • Rice, John E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Diamond, P. H.; Kosuga, Y.; Podpaly, Yuri A.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Greenwald, Martin J.; Gürcan, Ö. D.; Hahm, T. S.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Marmar, Earl S.; McDevitt, C. J.; Whyte, Dennis G. (American Physical Society, 2011-05)
    Intrinsic rotation has been observed in I-mode plasmas from the C-Mod tokamak, and is found to be similar to that in H mode, both in its edge origin and in the scaling with global pressure. Since both plasmas have similar ...
  • Doyle, Joseph J.; Muehlegger, Erich; Samphantharak, Krislert (Elsevier B.V., 2009-09)
    Some gasoline markets exhibit remarkable price cycles, where price spikes are followed by a series of small price declines: a pattern consistent with a model of Edgeworth cycles described by Maskin and Tirole. We extend ...
  • Ritvo, Harriet (Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, )
    In The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication, which appeared first in 1868 and in a revised edition in 1875, Charles Darwin developed a theme to which he had accorded great rhetorical and evidentiary significance. ...
  • Chen, Zhe; Barbieri, Riccardo (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-11)
    With cardiovascular diseases being among the main causes of death in the world, quantitative modeling, assessment and monitoring of cardiovascular dynamics, and functioning play a critical role in bringing important ...
  • Seager, Sara; Demory, Brice-Olivier; Bonfils, Xavier; Deming, D.; Triaud, Amaury H.M.J.; Gillon, M. (EDP Sciences, 2010-11)
    Because the planets of a system form in a flattened disk, they are expected to share similar orbital inclinations at the end of their formation. The high-precision photometric monitoring of stars known to host a transiting ...
  • Steinfeld, Jeffrey I.; Mino, Takashi (Springer Japan, 2009-03)
  • Dauwels, Justin H. G.; Vialatte, Francois; Latchoumane, Charles; Jeong, Jaeseung; Cichocki, Andrzej (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    It has frequently been reported in the medical literature that the EEG of Alzheimer disease (AD) patients is less synchronous than in healthy subjects. In this paper, it is explored whether loss in EEG synchrony can be ...
  • He, Ruijie; Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Roy, Nicholas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    A helicopter agent has to plan trajectories to track multiple ground targets from the air. The agent has partial information of each target's pose, and must reason about its uncertainty of the targets' poses when planning ...
