North Pacific Gyre Oscillation links ocean climate and ecosystem change
Decadal fluctuations in salinity, nutrients, chlorophyll, a variety of zooplankton taxa, and fish stocks in the Northeast Pacific are often poorly correlated with the most widely-used index ofExpand

Ocean forecasting in terrain-following coordinates: Formulation and skill assessment of the Regional Ocean Modeling System
Systematic improvements in algorithmic design of regional ocean circulation models have led to significant enhancement in simulation ability across a wide range of space/time scales and marine systemExpand

The Pacific Decadal Oscillation, Revisited
AbstractThe Pacific decadal oscillation (PDO), the dominant year-round pattern of monthly North Pacific sea surface temperature (SST) variability, is an important target of ongoing research withinExpand

A comprehensive ocean prediction and analysis system based on the tangent linear and adjoint of a regional ocean model
The regional ocean modelling system (ROMS) is a new generation ocean general circulation model that is rapidly gaining favour in the ocean modelling community. The tangent linear and adjoint versionsExpand

Interdecadal climate regime dynamics in the North Pacific Ocean: theories, observations and ecosystem impacts
Abstract Basin-scale variations in oceanic physical variables are thought to organize patterns of biological response across the Pacific Ocean over decadal time scales. Different physical mechanismsExpand

The biological response to the 1977 regime shift in the California Current
Among the least understood interactions between physics and biology in the oceans are those that take place on the decadal scale. But this temporal scale is important because some of the greatestExpand

Dynamical suppression of sea level rise along the Pacific coast of North America: Indications for imminent acceleration
[1] Long-term changes in global mean sea level (MSL) rise have important practical implications for shoreline and beach erosion, coastal wetlands inundation, storm surge flooding, and coastalExpand

Interdecadal variability of the Pacific Ocean: Model response to observed heat flux and wind stress anomalies
Variability of the Pacific Ocean is examined in numerical simulations with an ocean general circulation model forced by observed anomalies of surface heat flux, wind stress and turbulent kineticExpand

Coastal phytoplankton blooms in the Southern California Bight
Abstract Surface chlorophyll (CHL) measured at the Scripps Pier in the Southern California Bight (SCB) for 18 years (1983–2000) reveals that the spring bloom occurs with irregular timing andExpand
