Indian ocean biogeochemical processes and ecological variability by Jerry D Wiggert( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series. Indian Ocean Biogeochemical Processes and Ecological Variability provides a synthesis of current knowledge on Indian Ocean biogeochemistry and ecology and an introduction to new concepts and topical paradigm challenges. It also reports on the development of more extensive/frequent observational capacity being deployed in the Indian Ocean. This represents the first collection of syntheses that emphasize a basin-wide perspective, and the contributing authors include some of the most estee
The global coastal ocean : multiscale interdisciplinary processes by Allan R Robinson( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science to understand and manage our planet, contemporary ocean science plays an essential role. These two new volumes in the series The Sea focus on two of the most important components in the interdisciplinary field of ocean science today--the coastal ocean and its interactions with the deep sea, and coupled physical-biogeochemical and ecosystem dynamics. Comprehensive, definitive studies, these volumes chart the real progress being made by ocean scientists in achieving lasting scientific understanding; specifically, they address issues surrounding significant applications--for coastal regions and in general--such as: the development of monitoring and prediction systems; functionality and stability of ecosystems; eutrophication; harmful algae blooms; habitat modification; and regime shift. Intended as companion volumes to Volumes 10 and 11 on physical coastal oceanography, these studies of the global coastal ocean continue the series' overall effort to encourage and facilitate coastal and shelf ocean sciences and technology on a global basis

Coastal ocean processes : wind-driven transport processes on the U.S. west coast : Portland, Oregon, workshop July 14-16, 1993 by Robert L Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wind-driven transport occurs on nearly all of the world's continental shelves. A workshop, open to all interested scientists, was held in Portland, Oregon, on July l4-l6, 1993, to assess the need for a major interdisciplinary study, and to begin defining the relevant questions and approaches. Specific questions were posed in the areas of air-sea feedback, sources and sinks of chemicals in the euphotic zone, plankton distributions and benthic exchanges. The consensus of the entire workshop was that a CoOP study of wind-driven transport processes should be made and should take place over the continental margin adjacent to the U.S. west coast. The central question to be addressed is: What processes control the cross-margin transport of biological, chemical and geological materials in a strongly wind-driven system? Some recommendations were made for locations and measurement techniques to be used in the envisioned two-year field program. (MM)

Coastal Ocean Processes : a science prospectus( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CoOP (Coastal Ocean Processes) is an organization meant to study major interdisciplinary scientific problems in the coastal ocean. Its goal is to obtain a new level of quantitative understanding of the processes that dominate the transformations, transports and fates of biologically, chemically and geologically important matter on the continental margin. Central to obtaining this understanding will be advances in observing and modeling the cross-shelf component of transport. More specific objectives are to understand (1) cross- margin exchanges, (2) air sea exchanges, (3) benthic-pelagic exchanges, (4) terrestrial inputs and (5) biological and chemical transformations within the water column. CoOP research will be carried out primarily through a series of process-oriented field studies, each involving about two years of measurements. Each of these field studies is to be initiated and defined through a community workshop. In addition to the process studies, CoOP will also involve modeling, long time series, exploratory studies, remote sensing, technological innovation, data archiving and communications. A CoOP pilot study has been approved for funding by the National Science Foundation, and funding will begin in 1992. The CoOP science effort is thus already underway ...

Long time series measurements in the coastal ocean : a workshop by Charles L Vincent( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existing long time series efforts can be readily augmented by addition of existing sensors, enhancing their scope and impact. Significant benefits would result from multidisciplinary measurements to document long-term trends in physical as well as other variables. Standard observations as well as a diversity of approaches and measurements should comprise the suite of long-term measurements. Sites for long-term observations should be selected to define processes, represent major and diverse oceanographic systems, and to document pristine as well as stressed systems. The initial rationale for sites and observed properties must be clearly defined to avoid monitoring for monitoring's sake. In the long term, three-dimensional zones ("corridors") of long time series measurements might be created. Long time series measurements should be supplemented with process and modeling studies to ensure appropriate rationale and to provide a regional understanding for the site-specific observations. The Coastal Ocean Processes Program (CoOP) might provide some of these studies
Programs for computing properties of coastal-trapped waves and wind-driven motions over the continental shelf and slope by Kenneth H Brink( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentation and listings are presented for a sequence of computer programs to be used for problems in continental shelf dynamics. Three of the programs are to be used for computing properties of free and forced coastal-trapped waves. A final program may be used to compute wind-driven fluctuations over the continental shelf and slope. This second edition includes several minor revisions and corrections in the computer code and the documentation

FASINEX moored current meter array data report including WHOI meteorologically instrumented surface moorings (F2-845, F4-846, F6-847. F8-848. F10-849) and WHOI long term subsurface moorings (F1-829, F12-830) by Nancy J Pennington( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Frontal Air-Sea Interaction Experiment (FASINEX) examined air-sea interaction in the vicinity of sea surface temperature fronts in the Subtropical Convergence Zone (STCZ). Mooring measurements were made from five surface, four Profiling Current Meter (PCM) and two longer duration subsurface moorings. The surface and PCM moorings, which made up the FASINEX central array were set in January 1986 and remained on station for six months. The two outlying subsurface moorings, set 90 miles south and 30 miles north of the central array were deployed in October 1984 and were recovered with the central array moorings in June 1986. The surface moorings collected oceanographic and meteorological data, using a 3-meter instrumented discus buoy and eight to ten Vector Measuring Current Meters (VMCMs) and Vector Averaging Current Meters (VACMs). The surface buoy carried a Vector Measuring Wind recorder (VAWR) and a Meteorological Recorder (MR) which measured wind speed and direction, sea surface temperature (SST), air temperature, insolation, barometric pressure and relative humidity. The MR also transmitted meteorological and engineering data via ARGOS. The VMCMs and VACMs, placed from 10 to 4000 m, measured oceanic velocities and temperatures. The subsurface moorings measured oceanic velocities and temperature from 160 to 4060 m, carrying a total of seven VACMs and a WOTAN (Wind Observations Through Ambient Noise). This report presents meteorological and oceanographic data from the seven W.H.O.I. moorings, with major emphasis on the surface mooring data. Details of the moored array and a statement of data return and quality are also included
