Seasonal Variability of Retroflection Structures and Transports in the Atlantic Ocean as Inferred from Satellite-Derived Salinity Maps
Three of the world’s most energetic regions are in the tropical and South Atlantic: the North Brazil Current Retroflection, the Brazil-Malvinas Confluence, and the Agulhas Current Retroflection. All three regions display ...
PIRATA: A Sustained Observing System for Tropical Atlantic Climate Research and Forecasting
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2019)
Prediction and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic (PIRATA) is a multinational program initiated in 1997 in the tropical Atlantic to improve our understanding and ability to predict ocean‐atmosphere variability. ...
Freshwater budget in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf and exchanges at the Strait of Hormuz
Excess evaporation within the Persian (also referred as the Arabian) Gulf induces an inverse-estuary circulation. Surface waters are imported, via the Strait of Hormuz, while saltier waters are exported in the deeper layers. ...
Highly variable upper and abyssal overturning cells in the South Atlantic
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2020-08-05)
The Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) is a primary mechanism driving oceanic heat redistribution on Earth, thereby affecting Earth's climate and weather. However, the full-depth structure and variability of the MOC ...
Memory Effect of the Southern Atlantic Subtropical Dipole
(American Meteorological Society, 2020-08-04)
The South Atlantic subtropical dipole is the dominant mode of coupled variability in the South Atlantic, connecting sea level pressure and sea surface temperature. Previous studies have shown its great relevance to the ...
Biophysical model of coral population connectivity in the Arabian/Persian Gulf
The coral reef ecosystems of the Arabian/Persian Gulf (the Gulf ) are facing profound pressure from climate change (extreme temperatures) and anthropogenic (land-use and population-related) stressors. Increasing degradation ...
