The wind field measured during Project JASIN 1972, a joint
British-American venture during September 1972, was analyzed.
These measurements were done, with equipment manufactured by
Ivar Aanderaa of Bergen, Norway, on large, anchored toroid buoys.
The results of the analysis of the wind field, which included
divergence and vorticity estimates...
Two land breeze events occurred off the Oregon coast on the
nights of April 19th and 20th, 1973. An array of four moored toroid
buoys and one land station recorded the effect of the land breeze event
on the surface mesoscale wind and temperature fields. The land
breezes may have...
The one-dimensional numerical model developed by Carl R.
Goodwin is applied to the Siuslaw estuary. Vertical displacement,
horizontal velocity and flow of the water as a function of time and
distance from the mouth given by the model are compared with field
observations taken under different water mixing conditions in...
The climate and the exchange of heat between atmosphere and
ocean are examined in a region adjacent to Washington and Oregon,
and in two sub-regions adjacent to Oregon. The sub-regions are
chosen such that one contains the nearshore upwelling region and the
other borders it on the seaward side.
Fourier techniques have recently become popular for the
description of underwater image transmission. Two properties
necessary for the application of Fourier techniques to any system
are those of linearity and invariance. This work describes a
laboratory investigation of these properties for a variety of
aqueous media. The hypothesis is found...
