Fourth Meeting of the Global High Frequency Radar Network; Heraklion, Crete, Greece, 22–23 September 2015
Drifting Floats Reveal Nitrate Patterns in Mediterranean Sea
Next-generation autonomous platforms allow scientists to understand physical mechanisms that control nitrate availability in the Mediterranean surface water.
Distant Rains Contributed to La Niña Ocean Warming Event
Unusually low salinity intensified a warm-water current off the coast of Western Australia in 2010–2011.
Can the North Brazil Current Help Us Understand Atlantic Water Flow?
Currents off the coast of northern Brazil can be used to study changes in the larger oceanic circulation pattern in the Atlantic, when variable winds in the regions are properly accounted for.
Data Correction Needed for Long-Term Heat Transport Monitoring
Scientists assess how historical temperature biases could impact the detection of ocean heat transport changes in a key area of the South Atlantic Ocean where data are scarce.
Underwater Gliders Find Swirling Vortices of Warm, Salty Water
Vortices formed off the west coast of Sardinia could play a large role in Mediterranean water circulation and mixing and are significant for marine ecosystems and regional climate.
Large Variability Measured in Kuroshio Current East of Taiwan
Ship surveys show that the "Gulf Stream" of the Pacific is not a stable boundary current.
Forecasting and Communicating Risk of Rip Currents, Wave Runup
NOAA Coastal Hazards Resilience Workshop—Rip Currents and Wave Runup; Suffolk, Virginia, 14–16 April 2015
Survival of Young Sardines Flushed Out to Open Ocean
Despite favorable conditions within eddies and streamers that form ideal habitats for larval sardines, the young fish may not survive when flushed into the open ocean.
A Ferry Keeps Tabs on Water Headed Northward Near Iceland
A ferry's routine trips from Iceland to Europe provide the most detailed account of the region's water flow.
