Analyzes subscription costs and impact factors for journals in which COAS faculty most frequently published from 1994-2003. Includes a spreadsheet with journal title, subscription cost, impact factor, publisher, information about whether the journal is published by a non-profit or commercial publisher, and cost per page.
From almost 7000 near-surface eddy-covariance flux measurements over the sea, the authors deduce a new
air–sea drag relation for aerodynamically rough flow:
u* = 0.0583Uₙ₁₀ 2 0.243.
Here u* is the measured friction velocity, and Uₙ₁₀ is the neutral-stability wind speed at a reference height
of 10 m. This relation...
Air–sea coupling during coastal upwelling was examined through idealized three-dimensional numerical simulations with a coupled atmosphere–ocean mesoscale model. Geometry, topography, and initial and
boundary conditions were chosen to be representative of summertime coastal conditions off the Oregon coast. Over the 72-h simulations, sea surface temperatures were reduced several degrees near...
Csanady (1998) presents solutions for time-dependent wind-driven flow in a barotropic
coastal ocean. We disagree with two of his three boundary condition options and wish to
clarify the origin of the non-wavelike aspect of the flow
Three general types of swimbladders were found in the eight species of myctophids studied: gas-filled, fat-invested, and atrophied or reduced. Small specimens of all species had thin-walled, gas-filled swimbladders. Large specimens of Stenobrachius leucopsarus had fat-invested swim-bladders and large Diaphus theta had either gas-filled or atrophied swimbladders, as found by...
In summer 1988, we made repeated mesoscale surveys of a grid extending 200 km offshore between
37°N and 39°N in the coastal transition zone off northern California, obtaining continuous acoustic
Doppler current profiler data and conductivity-temperature-depth data at standard stations 25 km apart
on alongshore sections 40 km apart. All...
Our oceans surround us, and we depend upon them for food, transportation, and
recreation. They affect us daily as they shape our climate and rattle our world
with unexpected events. Current headlines indicate that they are in flux and
perhaps in trouble. Coral reefs are dying due to rising ocean...
