One the major factors determining the development and evolution of atmospheric convection is the sea surface temperature and its variability. Results of this thesis show that state of atmospheric convection impacts the diurnal distribution of thermal energy in the upper ocean. Under calm and clear sky conditions a shallow warm layer of several meters depth develops on the surface of the ocean. This warm layer drives an anomalous flux from the ocean to the atmosphere. A novel Kelvin wave… 



Clouds, Radiation, and the Diurnal Cycle of Sea Surface Temperature in the Tropical Western Pacific

Abstract The relationship among clouds, surface radiation flux, and the sea surface temperature (SST) of the tropical western Pacific Ocean over the diurnal cycle is addressed in the context of the

Bulk parameterization of air‐sea fluxes for Tropical Ocean‐Global Atmosphere Coupled‐Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment

This paper describes the various physical processes relating near-surface atmospheric and oceanographic bulk variables ; their relationship to the surface fluxes of momentum, sensible heat, and

Multiscale Air–Sea Interactions during TOGA COARE

Abstract Two distinct intraseasonal oscillations (ISO) are found in the tropical ocean atmosphere in the western Pacific region during Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere

Surface meteorology and air-sea fluxes in the western equatorial Pacific warm pool during the TOGA c

Abstract A major goal of the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) was to achieve significantly more accurate and complete descriptions of the surface meteorology and air-sea fluxes in

Mechanisms of Short-Term Sea Surface Temperature Regulation: Observations during TOGA COARE

Abstract Analyses of ocean–atmosphere data from Tropical Oceans Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere Response Experiment indicate that short-term (weekly to monthly) fluctuations of SST in the

Intraseasonal Variability of Surface Fluxes and Sea Surface Temperature in the Tropical Western Pacific and Indian Oceans

Abstract Composites of sea surface temperature (SST), surface heat, momentum, and freshwater flux anomalies associated with intraseasonal oscillations of convection are developed for the warm pool of

The Feedback between Equatorial Convection and Local Radiative and Evaporative Processes: The Implications for Intraseasonal Oscillations

Abstract Existing theories of the Madden–Julian oscillation neglect the feedback between the modification of sea surface temperature by the convection and development of a convective cluster itself.

A dynamical ocean feedback mechanism for the Madden–Julian Oscillation

Composite analysis is applied to study the dynamical ocean response to Madden–Julian (MJ) events, measured by anomalies in sea surface height from the merged TOPEX/Poseidon–European Remote Sensing

The Surface Diurnal Warm Layer in the Indian Ocean during CINDY/DYNAMO

A surface diurnal warm layer is diagnosed from Seaglider observations, and develops on half the days in the CINDY/DYNAMO Indian Ocean experiment. The diurnal warm layer occurs on days of high solar
