Multiple Choice (circle one answer for each) (2 points each) 1) Which is TRUE about the Equatorial Undercurrent (EUC) in the Pacific A) The EUC provides a circuitous path for the transport of water from the south Pacific to the North Size: 2MB. Here, we investigate the role of oceanic Rossby waves forced in the interior South Pacific on observed MHW occurrences off southeast Australia from , including the extreme /16 MHW event. First, we used an upper-ocean heat budget analysis to show that 51% of these historical Tasman Sea MHWs were primarily due to increased East.
Correspondingly, an enhancement of the Pacific trade winds 2 increased heat uptake from the atmosphere into the ocean, leading to an increase in heat stored in the tropical Pacific by: 2. A thorough understanding of the Pacific Ocean circulation is a necessity to solve global climate and environmental problems. Here we present a new picture of the circulation by integrating observational results.

Sherfesee. This work represents a synoptic study conducted in the North Pacific Ocean to determine mass, salt, and heat transports from a calculation of geostrophic currents.
Comprehensive depth, temperature, and salinity data were obtained from the INDOPAC 1 and 16 expeditions (April and July ) which covered a complete cross-sectional area along 35 deg N from California to : A close balance is demonstrated between geostrophic convergence, relative to m, and Ekman divergence, in a control volume defined by the modern (1 Cited by: The meridional heat transport is also calculated from the surface heat budget of Esbensen and Kushnir, who used Budyko's method.
The heat transport is southward at most latitudes if the numbers of Clark and of Weare are used. It is northward in the North Pacific and southward in the South Pacific if Eshensen and Kushnir's numbers are by: PDF | Meridional heat transport in the North Pacific in a seasonally forced high-resolution global ocean GCM is compared to observations.

For example, Trenberth and Caron () made a point that the poleward heat fluxes in the South Pacific and Indian Oceans are not well defined because of the existence of the Indonesian Throughflow.
A region that exerts rate-limiting effects on the transport of heat and mass in the world ocean is called. If we enclose salt water in an airtight bottle and leave it there for years, its density will. The name of the eastern boundary current in the South Pacific Ocean is the.

Using atmospheric reanalyses, only half of the mean heat gain by the Pacific north of °S is compensated by oceanic heat transport out of the by: The size and character of the temperature variations depend on the net rate of heat flow (transport) into or out of a water body.
Heat budgets quantify these balances. In the following list, the symbol Q represents the rate of heat flow measured in Joules per second (Watts) per square meter, W/m 2. Subscripts are used to distinguish the. Purchase Ocean Circulation and Climate, Volume - 2nd Edition. Print Book & E-Book.

Phys. Oceanogr., 13, The reduced climatological wind speeds, which are associated with the seasonal intensification of the South Pacific convergence zone (SPCZ), lead to anomalous boundary layer Ekman pumping and a reduced surface momentum damping of the combined boundary layer/lower-troposphere surface wind response to El by: Thermohaline circulation (THC) is a part of the large-scale ocean circulation that is driven by global density gradients created by surface heat and freshwater fluxes.
The adjective thermohaline derives from thermo-referring to temperature and -haline referring to salt content, factors which together determine the density of sea water. Wind-driven surface currents (such as the Gulf Stream. Water Transport of Heat Water is about 1, times as dense as air, and, since the amount of thermal energy transported by a moving fluid is proportional to its density, a volume of water can transport about a thousand times as much heat as an equivalent volume of air.

South Pacific.Descriptive Physical Oceanography, Sixth Edition, provides an introduction to the field with an emphasis on large-scale oceanography based mainly on observations.
Topics covered include the physical properties of seawater, heat and salt budgets, instrumentation, data analysis methods, introductory dynamics, oceanography and climate variability of each of the oceans and of the global ocean, and.Warm ocean currents flow away from the equatorial region on the western side of ocean basins.
The Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic and the Kuroshio Current in the North Pacific are examples of warm currents. Of all the warm currents, the Gulf Stream has been studied most extensively.
