Description: Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, 18119 Warnemünde, Germany. A new seawater standard for oceanographic and engineering applications has been developed that consists of three independent thermodynamic potential functions, derived from extensive distinct sets of very accurate experimental data. The results have been formulated as Releases of the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam, IAPWS (1996, 2006, 2008) and are expe...

Intrinsic Variability of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current System:...

By: S. Pierini; H. A. Dijkstra; G. Sgubin

Description: Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL), Paris, France. In this paper, the variability of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current system produced by purely intrinsic nonlinear oceanic mechanisms is studied through a sigma-coordinate ocean model, implemented in a large portion of the Southern Ocean at an eddy-permitting resolution under steady surface heat and momentum fluxes. The mean transport through the Drake Passage and the structure of the main Antarctic Ci...

Description: Institut de Ciències del Mar, CSIC, Barcelona, Spain. Nowadays Earth observation satellites provide information about many relevant variables of the ocean-climate system, such as temperature, moisture, aerosols, etc. However, to retrieve the velocity field, which is the most relevant dynamical variable, is still a technological challenge, specially in the case of oceans. New processing techniques, emerged from the theory of turbulent flows, have come t...

Description: Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany. The East Greenland Current in the Western Fram Strait is an important pathway for liquid freshwater export from the Arctic Ocean to the Nordic Seas and the North Atlantic subpolar gyre. We analysed five hydrographic surveys and data from moored current meters around 79° N in the Western Fram Strait between 1998 and 2010. To estimate the composition of southward ...

Description: Mercator Océan, Toulouse, France. Operational systems operated by Mercator Océan provide daily ocean forecasts, and combining these forecasts we can produce ensemble forecast and uncertainty estimates. This study focuses on the mixed layer depth in the North East Atlantic near the Porcupine Abyssal Plain for May 2013. This period is of interest for several reasons: (1) four Mercator Océan operational systems provide daily forecasts at a horizonta...

Description: Georges Lemaître Center for Earth and Climate Research, Earth and Life Institute, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. One of the main features of the oceanic circulation along Antarctica is the Antarctic Slope Current (ASC). This circumpolar current flows westwards and contributes to communication between the three major oceanic basins around Antarctica. The ASC is not very well known due to remote location and the presence of sea ice during several months, allow...

By: A. Hense; A. Düsterhus

Description: Meteorological Institute of the University of Bonn, Auf dem Hügel 20, 53121 Bonn, Germany. A new method for testing time series of environmental data for internal inconsistencies is presented. The method divides the dataset into several disjunct blocks. By means of a comparison of the blocks' estimated probability density distributions, each block is compared with the others. In order to judge the differences, four different measures are used and compare...
