Analytical and numerical models are used to study the effects of a meridional ridge on the propagation of barotropic Rossby waves produced by distant wind stress forcing. The analytical model illustrates the qualitative aspects of the problem by solving a simplified form of the potential vorticity equation. The analytical results...
The upward flux of heat from the subsurface core of Warm Deep Water
(WDW) to the perennially ice-covered sea surface over the continental slope in the
western Weddell Sea is estimated using data obtained during February-June 1992
from a drifting ice station. Through the permanent pycnocline the diapycnal heat
A field study was established to explore stand structure and development patterns of
mature, mixed-species forests in the Interior Cedar-Hemlock (ICH) zone: moist cold
subzone of northwestern British Columbia. The species of interest in the study area
were: western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.), western redcedar (Thuja
plicata Donn), lodgepole...
