Annual cycle of the South Indian Ocean (Seychelles-Chagos) thermocline ridge in a regional ocean model

[1] The presence of an upwelling “dome”-like feature in the thermocline depth at 55°E–65°E, 5°S–12°S in the southwest tropical Indian Ocean (SWTIO) has been suggested in earlier work. However, the

Oceanographic Conditions of the Eastern Tropical Pacific

The eastern Pacific warm pool supports reef-building corals, as well as distinct communities of plankton, fishes, marine mammals and birds. This habitat is characterized by warm, low-salinity surface

Monsoon‐like winds reverse oceanic circulation in the Panama Bight

Seasonal circulation and three‐dimensional thermohaline structure within the Panama Bight are examined by employing satellite‐derived sea surface winds and dense in‐situ hydrographic datasets. The

Seasonal changes in the tropical Atlantic circulation: Observation and simulation of the Guinea Dome

The Guinea Dome is a permanent, quasi-stationary feature on the eastern side of the thermal ridge extending zonally across the tropical North Atlantic. The dome is a part of the large-scale

Response of the Eastern Tropical Pacific to Meridional Migration of the ITCZ: The Generation of the Costa Rica Dome

Abstract A regional ocean circulation model with fine horizontal resolution has been developed in order to obtain a coherent seasonal picture of the eastern tropical Pacific off Central America. The

Response of the Western Tropical Pacific to the Asian Winter Monsoon: The Generation of the Mindanao Dome

Abstract We have investigated the evolution of the Mindanao Dome off the Philippine coast using the GFDL ocean model. It is found that the model's Mindanao Dome evolves in late fall due to local

Offshore wind forcing in the Gulf of Tehuantepec, Mexico: The asymmetric circulation

Since the early surveys carried out by the Eastern Tropical Pacific (EASTROPIC) and Scripps Tuna Oceanographic Research (STOR) projects in the tropical Pacific off Mexico, the northerly winds which

Seasonal climatologies and variability of eastern tropical Pacific surface waters

Interannual variability caused by the El Nino-Southern Oscillation in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) is analogous to seasonal variability of comparable magnitude. Climatological spatial

The global distribution of wind‐induced upwelling

The global distribution of wind-induced upwelling at the base of the surface Ekman layer has been computed from the COADS monthly wind stress from 1950 to 1988. In contrast to previous studies where

Observations of long Rossby waves in the northern tropical Pacific

Long baroclinic Rossby waves are potentially important in the adjustment of the tropical Pacific pycnocline to both annual and interannual wind stress curl fluctuations. Evidence for such waves is

Thermocline topography, horizontal currents and “ridging” in the Eastern Tropical Pacific

ENGLISH: A primary objective of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission is a knowledge of the ecology of tunas which inhabit the Eastern Tropical Pacific. This paper presents some results of the

Characteristics of wind‐generated rings in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean

Eddies are generated in the eastern tropical Pacific (3°S–23°N, 75°–105°W) by winds blowing through Central American mountain passes from the Atlantic. We used Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) and

Tropical Atlantic geostrophic currents and ship drifts

Historical ship drifts and geostrophic surface currents obtained from hydrographic data are compared in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. The major components of the current system (North Equatorial
