Nine CARbon Interface OCean Atmosphere (CARIOCA) drifters were deployed in the Southern Ocean (south of the subtropical front, STF) between 2001 and 2006. They recorded 65 months of measurements in all seasons between 57uS and 40uS. Hydrological fronts detected by altimetry indicate that one buoy explored the polar zone (PZ) of the Atlantic Ocean and the(More)
We study the signature of rainfall on S 1cm , the sea surface salinity retrieved from the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite mission first by comparing SMOS S 1cm with ARGO sea surface salinity measured at about 5 m depth in the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and in the Southern Pacific Convergence Zone; second by investigating spatial(More)
Rheology and water content properties of cereal boluses collected just before swallowing were investigated. No specific physical markers for swallowing were found between subjects. Each subject had his own mastication strategy leading to food boluses with different rheological and water content properties. However, for most of the subjects, similar physical(More)
The explosion of core-collapse supernova depends on a sequence of events taking place in less than a second in a region of a few hundred kilometers at the centre of a supergiant star, after the stellar core approaches the Chandrasekhar mass and collapses into a proto-neutron star, and before a shock wave is launched across the stellar envelope. Theoretical(More)
The SMOS MIRAS instrument is performing above expectations, and brightness temperatures are being now operationally generated with very high quality. Since the end of the commissioning phase in May 2010 the instrument acquisition mode is set to full polarization. However, the highly demanding requirements imposed by the salinity retrieval to both the(More)
