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...
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.
The behavior of different parameterizations of mixed layer physics
when used in an oceanic general circulation model (OGCM) having coarse
resolution of the upper ocean is examined. The method of parameterization
is expected to have an important effect on the resulting sea surface
temperature, and hence affect the model's overall...
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...
