Connectivity of marine populations: open or closed?
Most marine populations are thought to be well connected via long-distance dispersal of larval stages. Eulerian and Lagrangian flow models, coupled with linear mortality estimates, were used toExpand

Observations of seasonal exchange through the Straits of Hormuz and the inferred heat and freshwater budgets of the Persian Gulf
The exchange between the Persian (Arabian) Gulf and the Indian Ocean is investigated using hydrographic and moored acoustic Doppler current profiler data from the Straits of Hormuz during the periodExpand

Excess nitrate and nitrogen fixation in the North Atlantic Ocean
The process of nitrogen fixation in the subtropical North Atlantic has received considerable study over the last few decades. The findings have highlighted a large discrepancy in estimates for theExpand

Inputs, losses and transformations of nitrogen and phosphorus in the pelagic North Atlantic Ocean
The North Atlantic Ocean receives the largest allochthonous supplies of nitrogen of any ocean basin because of the close proximity of industrialized nations. In this paper, we describe the majorExpand

Temporal variations in the separation of Brazil and Malvinas Currents
Abstract The separation of the Brazil and Malvinas (Falkland) Currents from the western boundary is explored with the use of satellite and drifter data. The location of the separation of theseExpand

Seascape Genetics: A Coupled Oceanographic-Genetic Model Predicts Population Structure of Caribbean Corals
Population genetics is a powerful tool for measuring important larval connections between marine populations [1-4]. Similarly, oceanographic models based on environmental data can simulate particleExpand

Maintenance of the low-oxygen layer in the central Arabian Sea
Abstract An intermediate depth layer, approximately 1 km thick, in the northwestern Indian Ocean contains essentially no detectable dissolved oxygen. Previous suggestions for primary causes of thisExpand

Influence of monsoonally-forced Ekman dynamics upon surface layer depth and plankton biomass distribution in the Arabian Sea
Abstract Oceanic surface layer properties in the central Arabian Sea at the height of the northeast 1986, 1987 and southwest 1987 monsoons are described. Data from two research cruises on the R.R.S.Expand

RINGS IN THE OCEAN
Certain robust, long-lived eddy features in t he world's ocean have come to be k nown as rings. The nomenclature stems from Fuglister 1 (1972), who c oined t he name based on the c ircle or ring ofExpand

Rings of the Agulhas current
Abstract A combination of satellite-tracked surface drifters, satellite-derived sea surface temperature, and ship-measured isotherm depth fields are used to describe two rings formed from the AgulhasExpand
