Along-Stream Evolution of Gulf Stream Volume Transport

  title={Along-Stream Evolution of Gulf Stream Volume Transport},
  author={Joleen Heiderich and Robert E. Todd},
  journal={Journal of Physical Oceanography},
AbstractThe Gulf Stream affects global climate by transporting water and heat poleward. The current’s volume transport increases markedly along the US East Coast. An extensive observing program usi... 
Gulf Stream Marine Hydrokinetic Energy Off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina
AbstractMulti-year measurements of current velocity, salinity, and temperature from fixed and vessel-mounted sensors quantify Gulf Stream (GS) marine hydrokinetic energy (MHK) resource variability
Characterizing the impact of underwater glider observations on the Navy Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM) in the Gulf Stream Region
As the western boundary current of the North Atlantic, the Gulf Stream is a well established area of interest for the United States Navy, predominately due to its proximity to the continental shelf

The strong, meandering, and eddy‐shedding Gulf Stream is a large oceanic reservoir of both mean and eddy kinetic energy in the northwestern Atlantic. Since 2015, underwater gliders equipped with
Overview of the Processes Driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras Program
The Processes driving Exchange At Cape Hatteras (PEACH) program seeks to better understand seawater exchanges between the continental shelf and the open ocean near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. This
Population connectivity of the euphausiid, Stylocheiron elongatum, in the Gulf Stream (NW Atlantic Ocean) in relation to COI barcode diversity of Stylocheiron species
It is hypothesized that position-keeping by this deep-living, non-migrating euphausiid species may prevent genetic homogenization (panmixia) in the dynamic Gulf Stream System.
Development of a benchmark solution in compressible liquid flows: analytical solution to the water shock tube problem
This paper discusses the development of an analytical solution to a pure liquid shock tube problem with water as the working fluid. The solution procedure associated with classical gas shock tube

The westward intensification of wind‐driven ocean currents
A study is made of the wind-driven circulation in a homogeneous rectangular ocean under the influence of surface wind stress, linearised bottom friction, horizontal pressure gradients caused by a
The Effect of the New England Seamounts on Gulf Stream Meandering as Observed from Satellite IR Imagery
Abstract It is commonly held belief that meandering of the Gulf Stream increases dramatically downstream of the New England Seamount chain. In fact this appears not to be the case. The envelope of
Low‐frequency current and temperature variability from Gulf Stream frontal eddies and atmospheric forcing along the southeast U.S. outer continental shelf
Low-frequency current and temperature time series from the outer shelf between Cape Canaveral, Florida, and Cape Romain, South Carolina, are compared with shipboard hydrographic data, satellite VHRR,
Distribution of Antarctic intermediate water over the Blake Plateau
During a cruise in September 1980 over the Blake Plateau we observed a northward spread of Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) in the main axis of the Gulf Stream. The AAIW appeared as a lobe less
Gulf Stream Dynamics along the Southeastern U.S. Seaboard
AbstractThe Gulf Stream strongly interacts with the topography along the southeastern U.S. seaboard, between the Straits of Florida and Cape Hatteras. The dynamics of the Gulf Stream in this region
Potential Vorticity Structure in the North Atlantic Western Boundary Current from Underwater Glider Observations
AbstractPotential vorticity structure in two segments of the North Atlantic’s western boundary current is examined using concurrent, high-resolution measurements of hydrography and velocity from
Dynamics of the Gulf Stream/Deep Western Boundary Current Crossover. Part I: Entrainment and Recirculation
Abstract A regional primitive equation model is applied to the study of the interaction between the Gulf Stream and the deep western boundary current (DWBC) where they cross at Cape Hatteras. It is
Profiling the Gulf Stream with a current meter mooring
A current meter mooring was deployed for one year at the mean position of the Gulf Stream at 68°W. With instruments from 400 m to 4000 m, it provides the first unambiguous evidence that the Gulf
On the recent destabilization of the Gulf Stream path downstream of Cape Hatteras
Mapped satellite altimetry reveals interannual variability in the position of initiation of Gulf Stream meanders downstream of Cape Hatteras. The longitude where the Gulf Stream begins meandering
