[1] Sea surface temperature (SST) fronts are determined for the 2001–2004 time period from Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) data in the California Current System (CCS). The probability of detecting a SST front at an individual pixel location in the CCS is presented as a bi-monthly climatology. Fronts clearly indicate the seasonal(More)
[1] Data from Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites are used to study the seasonal evolution of temperature fronts in the northern California Current System (CCS), focusing on the interactions with topographic features. Fronts first appear close to the coast in response to upwelling winds, moving offshore with the continuous input of energy to(More)
[1] A young cold core cyclonic eddy displaying a significant increase in surface chlorophyll was observed offshore Lanai Island, Hawai’i, where the Marine Optical Buoy (MOBY) is located. During one of its deployments, MOBY broke free from its mooring. In the course of its 3-day free drifting period, MOBY followed a cyclonic eddy, which is manifested by(More)
One way to reduce the need and demand for hospital services is via health promotion initiatives. A prenatal instructors' education module preventing the learning of violence as acceptable behaviour by children in their first year of life was developed by a health promoting hospital in partnership with its community. Children learn through observing(More)
A method to estimate means and variance of strength based on anthropometric data is presented. The method is applied using a database of 10 lower extremity strength measures recorded from 48 typically developing children with a handheld dynamometer. Seven anthropometric variables are considered, and the combination of height and BMI is determined as a set(More)
Remotely sensed sea surface temperatures (SST) derived from the NOAA polar (POES) and geostationary (GOES) satellites continue to be an indispensable resource that directly supports NOAA’s missions and strategic goals. Since the inception of satellite oceanography in the 1970s, NOAA/NESDIS has been an international contributor in the advancement of(More)
