Submesoscale turbulence in the upper ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
Submesoscale flows, current systems 1-100 km in horizontal extent, are increasingly coming into focus as an important component of upper-ocean dynamics. A range of processes have been proposed to energize submesoscale ...
The evolution of upper ocean thermal structure at 10⁰N, 125⁰W during 1997-1998
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
In this thesis I have endeavored to determine the factors and physical processes that controlled SST and thermocline depth at 10⁰N, 125⁰W during the Pan Amer- ican Climate Study (PACS) field program. Analysis based on the ...
The response of the Red Sea to a strong wind jet near the Tokar Gap in summer
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
Remote sensing and in situ observations are used to investigate the ocean response to the Tokar Wind Jet in the Red Sea. The wind jet blows down the pressure gradient through the Tokar Gap on the Sudanese coast, at about ...
The effects of ocean eddies on tropical cyclones
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
The purpose of this study is to understand the interactions of tropical cyclones with ocean eddies. In particular we examine the influence of a cold-core eddy on the cold wake formed during the passage of Typhoon Fanapi ...
