    Used in conjunction with the ADCP current measurements, they helped identify periods of deepwater exchange (which tends to be colder and saltier) between PWS and the Gulf of Alaska. The data also helped to determine the amount of freshwater coming into the Sound from the Copper River Delta and the many glaciers around the Sound. nesting choices for the northwest North Atlantic would be expected (relative to the Middle Atlantic Bight) because of its extreme variability and large dynamical complexity. Here we describe the implementation of a nested regional ocean model for the northwest North Atlantic shelves, includ-ing the Gulf of Maine, the Scotian Shelf, the Gulf of.

The Atlantic Ocean is the second largest of the world's oceans, with an area of aboutsquare kilometers (41, square miles). It covers approximately 20 percent of Earth's surface and about 29 percent of its water surface area. It separates the "Old World" from the "New World".The Atlantic Ocean occupies an elongated, S-shaped basin extending longitudinally between Europe and Basin countries: List of countries, ports.

With respect to station-based time series there are many good examples in the North Sea and North Atlantic, for instance the Helgoland Roads time series in the German Bight which was established inthe Western Channel Observatory off Plymouth, established inor Hydrostation ‘S’ which started its measurements in the Sargasso Sea.

INTRODUCTION As discussed by [7,6] in the current issue, repeated full-depth transoceanic observations are an indispensable effective tool for assessing the large-scale circulation and thermohaline changes in the deep ocean and. A World Ocean Circulation experiment Hydrographic Program section along 66 degreesW in the North Atlantic was made in In addition to the usual variables (hydrographic and tracer) measured in WOCE onetime sections, we made lowered acoustic doppler current profiler (LADCP) measurements at nearly all of the stations.

[1] The first sustained glider observations in the Middle Atlantic Bight are used to describe the seasonal evolution of hydrographic fields off New Jersey.

Near-surface temperatures respond to the seasonal cycle of surface heating, while waters at depth are primarily influenced by advection of cold waters from the north in the cold-pool.

Husby. In ocean current: Thermohaline circulation types contribute to the so-called North Atlantic Deep one of them differs, though they share a common attribute of being relatively warm (greater than 2° C) and salty (greater than parts per thousand) compared with the other major producer of deep and bottom water, the Southern Ocean.

The Southwestern region of the Atlantic Ocean (Figure 1) comprises one of the most dynamically active regions of the World Ocean, the Brazil-Malvinas Confluence (BMC) region.

The BMC comprises territorial waters of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina, and is an oceanographic front between the Brazil Current (BC) and the Malvinas Current (MC), where.

Though the Kuroshio generally flows along the western boundary from Taiwan to southeastern Japan. North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW) is a water mass that forms in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is largely formed in the Labrador Sea and in the Greenland Sea by the sinking of highly saline, dense overflow water from the Greenland Sea.
