The SSTa tendency has maximum correlations with meridional wind stress
off the coasts of California and Baja California, from -130[degrees] to 140[degrees]W (Fig.
Dr David Gwyther from the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania, and a contributor to the new research, said the study combined satellite images of the ice sheet, wind stress
data, and oceanography observations, to determine the chain of events that bring warm water to the Totten.
In shallow tropical coastal areas, like the VRSNP, a high correlation is expected between wind stress
and sea level.
Principal component analysis was used to define the alongshore and cross-shore components of the wind stress
for each MB.
The advantage of using drogues or sails is that the slippage between the drifter and current motion due to wind stress
In the theoretical study, we will need to develop a new theory in which the wind effects such as the wind stress
and the wind-induced surface current are considered.
This thermal anomaly has been attributed to mixing and upwelling induced by the curl of wind stress
Cross sections were obtained from Gledistia tricanthos and Tilia americana that experienced mechanical wind stress
primarily from just two directions, which resulted in elliptical stems.
was used as an indication of wind mixing or turbulence because it can affect larval encounter rates with zooplankton prey and subsequent feeding, growth, and survival for each cohort.
The angle determined between the surface wind stress
and the surface drift velocity differs in general from the angle obtained by the classical Ekman solution (Cushman-Roisin 1994).
In the north, where ice-dependent species are disappearing, sea ice cover has declined and wind stress
There are two main reasons for choosing this approach over what was done for GloSea3 (SST and wind stress
perturbation of a central analysis) or at others centres such as ECMWF and MeteoFrance: First, perturbing a central analysis degrades the initial conditions (as demonstrated in Bowler et al.
