Computations of the eddy heat and density transports across the Gulf Stream by Abraham H Oort( )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data of the current velocity, temperature and salinity of the Gulf Stream, collected during 200 crossings of the current in cruises off Onslow Bay, Jacksonville (30 0 N) and Cape Hatteras, are used to compute the eddy fluxes of heat and density across the mean current. In each cruise an eddy transport of heat is observed, which is directed from the colder coastal water to the Sargasso Sea in the surface layers. The meanders in the stream appear to increase the thermal contrast across the so called Gulf Stream front and thus violate the ordinary diffusion laws by not transporting heat from the warm to the cold source. The transport of density across the stream is, in general, towards the shore, reflecting mostly the influence of the temperature on the density. Webster (1961b) has shown in an earlier study that there is a surface flow of kinetic energy and momentum from the meanders to the mean flow of the Gulf Stream. Since the meanders of the scale considered in these studies appear to speed up the Gulf Stream and do not feed upon, but actually build up the thermal contrast near the surface, these eddies must be forced. More measurements of the kind described in this paper, are needed to verify the observed abnormal heat and density fluxes in the Gulf Stream

Direct measurement of the meridional circulation in the stratosphere during the IGY by Abraham H Oort( Book )

4 editions published between 1962 and 1963 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mean meridional circulation in the stratosphere of the northern hemisphere is determined from IGY data available for a network of approximately 240 stations during the period July 1957 - June 1958. Zonal averages for every 5 degrees latitude from the equator to 80 degrees N are presented. The yearly average suggests at 100 mb a three cell pattern with poleward motion north of 55 degrees N, equatorial motion from 15 to 55 degrees N and weak poleward motion from the equator to 15 degrees N. At higher levels equatorward motions are observed in middle and low latitudes. The highest meridional velocity of +60 cm/sec is observed at 70 degrees N at the 100 mb level. These averages are compared with similar results for the southern hemisphere. Vertical velocities, computed adiabatically at 75 and 40 mb, made it possible to estimate the contribution of the diabatic heating to the horizontal meridional velocities at 50 mb, and also to give an estimate of the diabatic heating itself.
