Dynamics of global ocean heat transport variability
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
A state-of-the-art, high-resolution ocean general circulation model is used to estimate the time-dependent global ocean heat transport and investigate its dynamics. The north-south heat transport is the prime manifestation ...
Analysis and interpretation of tidal currents in the coastal boundary layer
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1979)
Concern with the impact of human activities on the coastal region of the world's oceans has elicited interest in the so-called "coastal boundary layer"-that band of water adjacent to the coast where ocean currents adjust ...
