Climate-scale chlorophyll patterns in the tropical Pacific from a 51 year statistical reconstruction
Understanding large, slow biological changes in the oceans has been hindered by a lack of spatial coverage by direct measurements and a lack of temporal coverage by satellite remote-sensing observations. Global ocean surface ...
OCEAN VARIABILITY IN CMIP5 (COUPLED MODEL INTERCOMPARISON PROJECT PHASE 5) HISTORICAL SIMULATIONS
The oceans play a key role in the global climate variability. This dissertation examines climate variability in historical simulations from fourteen CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) coupled models on ...
The role of the Indian Ocean sector and sea surface salinity for prediction of the coupled Indo-Pacific system
The purpose of this dissertation is to evaluate the potential downstream influence of the Indian Ocean (IO) on El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts through the oceanic pathway of the Indonesian Throughflow (ITF), ...
Strongly Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Data Assimilation with the Local Ensemble Transform Kalman Filter
Current state-of-the-art coupled data assimilation systems handle the ocean and atmosphere separately when generating an analysis, even though ocean atmosphere models are subsequently run as a coupled system for forecasting. ...
EVALUATING OCEANOGRAPHIC HYPOTHESES: THREE METHODS FOR TESTING IDEAS
The disciplines of meteorology and oceanography are both vital to understanding the earth system. Throughout most of the last half century, meteorology has largely been a prognostic discipline. Forecasts made by meteorologists ...
RETRIEVALS OF ANTARCTIC SEA ICE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES FROM SATELLITE RADAR ALTIMETRY
Satellite observations have been used in sea ice research throughout the last 40+ years and have brought to light substantial changes in the global sea ice coverage. More recently, satellite altimetry has become a valuable ...
