By: D. Vicinanza; L. Cavallaro; C. Iuppa; E. Foti

Description: Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, University of Catania Via Santa Sofia 64, 95123 Catania, Italy. An analysis of wave energy along the coasts of Sicily (Italy) is presented with the aim of selecting possible sites for the implementation of Wave Energy Converters (WECs). The analysis focuses on the selection of hot-spot-areas of energy concentration. A third-generation model was adopted to reconstruct the wave data along the coast over a p...

Ventilation of the Mediterranean Sea Constrained by Multiple Trans...

By: T. Tanhua; T. Stöven

Description: GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Kiel, Germany. Ventilation is the prime pathway for ocean surface perturbations, such as temperature anomalies, to be relayed to the ocean interior. It is also the conduit for gas exchange between atmosphere and ocean and thus the mechanism whereby, for instance, the interior ocean is oxygenated and enriched in anthropogenic carbon. The ventilation of the Mediterranean Sea is fast in comparison to the wor...

By: B. Ahrens; S. Krähenmann

Description: Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, Goethe-University Frankfurt, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. This paper investigates the potential impact of secondary information on rainfall mapping applying Ordinary Kriging. Secondary information tested is a natural area indicator, which is a combination of topographic features and weather conditions. Cross validation shows that secondary information only marginally improves the final mapping, indicat...

By: H. Zuo; K. Haines; V. N. Stepanov

Description: ESSC, University of Reading, Reading, UK. An analysis of observational data in the Barents Sea along a meridian at 33°30´ E between 70°30´ and 72°30´ N has reported a negative correlation between El Niño/La Niña-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events and water temperature in the top 200 m: the temperature drops about 0.5 °C during warm ENSO events while during cold ENSO events the top 200 m layer of the Barents Sea is warmer. Results from 1 and 1/4-degree g...

On the Use of the Stokes Number to Explain Frictional Tidal Dynami...

By: A. J. Souza

Description: National Oceanography Centre, Joseph Proudman Building, 6 Brownlow Street, Liverpool, L3 5DA, UK. In recent years coastal oceanographers have suggested using the Strouhal number or its inverse, the Stokes number, to describe the effect of bottom boundary layer turbulence on the vertical structure of both density and currents. These are defined as the ratios of the frictional depth (Δ) to the water column depth (h) or vice versa. Although many res...

Description: Baltic Sea Research Institute, Seestraße 15, D-18119 Warnemünde, Germany. The 2004 Gibbs thermodynamic potential function of naturally abundant water ice is based on much more experimental data than its predecessors, is therefore significantly more accurate and reliable, and for the first time describes the entire temperature and pressure range of existence of this ice phase. It is expressed in the ITS-90 temperature scale and is consistent with the cur...

Geothermal Heating, Diapycnal Mixing and the Abyssal Circulation :...

By: G. Madec; J. Emile-geay

Description: Department of Earth Sciences, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA. The dynamical role of geothermal heating in abyssal circulation is reconsidered using three independent arguments. First, we show that a uniform geothermal heat flux close to the observed average (86.4 mW m−2) supplies as much heat to near-bottom water as a diapycnal mixing rate of ~10−4 m2 s−1 – the canonical value thought to b...

Description: Department of Oceanography, Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, USA. The spatial and temporal sea surface height energy distribution of the Northeast Pacific Ocean is described and discussed. Using an altimetric data set covering 15 years (1993–2007), the energy within the 3–9 month band is primarily located within 10° of the coast. In the Gulf of Alaska, this energy signal is on the shelf, while further south, west of the California/Oregon...

Description: Department of Geography, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan USA. The characteristics of winter season persistent deep stable layers (PDSLs) over Utah's Salt Lake Valley are examined using 30-year twice daily rawinsonde soundings. The results highlight the basic climatological characteristics of the PDSLs, including the strengths of the inversion, the frequency of the occurrence, and the duration of the events. The data analyses also revea...
