Description: Max-Planck-Institut für Chemie (Otto-Hahn-Institut) Hahn-Meitner-Weg 1, 55128 Mainz, Germany. In this study we present gas-exchange measurements conducted in a large-scale wind–wave tank. Fourteen chemical species spanning a wide range of solubility (dimensionless solubility, Α = 0.4 to 5470) and diffusivity (Schmidt number in water, Scw = 594 to 1194) were examined under various turbulent (u10 = 0.73 to 13.2 m s−...

Description: University of California, Irvine, Irvine, California, USA. A compact, low-cost atmospheric pressure, chemical ionization mass spectrometer (mini-CIMS) has been developed for continuous underway shipboard measurements of dimethylsulfide (DMS) in seawater. The instrument was used to analyze DMS in air equilibrated with flowing seawater across a porous Teflon membrane equilibrator. The equilibrated gas stream was diluted with air containing an isotopically...

By: A. MacKe; M. Hieronymi

Description: Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (IFT), Leipzig, Germany. We present a detailed study of the influence of various wind and wave conditions on the distribution of downwelling irradiance within the upper ocean mixed layer down to 100 m water depth. The work is based on a two-dimensional Monte Carlo radiative transfer model with high spatial resolution. We treat conditions that are favorable for the development of extreme ligh...

Description: IRSTEA, Hydrology Group, UR HBAN, 1 rue Pierre-Gilles de Gennes CS 10030, 92761 Antony, France. The aim of this paper is to investigate the use of statistical correction techniques in hydrological ensemble prediction. Ensemble weather forecasts (precipitation and temperature) are used as forcing variables to a hydrologic forecasting model for the production of ensemble streamflow forecasts. The impact of different bias correction strategies on the qualit...

By: J. Schneider Von Deimling; C. Papenberg

Description: Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Rostock, Germany. Hydroacoustic detection of natural gas release from the seafloor has been conducted in the past by using singlebeam echosounders. In contrast modern multibeam swath mapping systems allow much wider coverage, higher resolution, and offer 3-D spatial correlation. However, up to the present, the extremely high data rate hampers water column backscatter investigations. More sophisticated visualiza...

Description: National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK. The first (and second) baroclinic deformation (or Rossby) radii are presented and discussed north of ~60° N, focusing on deep basins and shelf seas in the high Arctic Ocean, the Nordic Seas, Baffin Bay, Hudson Bay and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, derived from high-resolution ice-ocean general circulation model output. Comparison of the model output with measured results shows that low values of t...

Description: IAMC, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Oristano, Italy. The spatial and temporal variability of eddy and mean kinetic energy of the Central Mediterranean Sea has been investigated, from January 2008 to December 2010, by mean of a numerical simulation mainly to quantify the mesoscale dynamics and their relationships with physical forcing. In order to understand the energy redistribution processes, the baroclinic energy conversion has been analysed, su...

By: D. M. Sonechkin

Description: P. P. Shirshov Oceanology Institute, RAS, Moscow, Russia. The problem of a hard contradiction between limited possibilities of meteorological observations and uncontrolled complication of the present-day weather forecasting models, and its consequences for the planetary wave predictability are considered with examples from the ECMWF short- and medium-range H500 forecasts for the Northern Hemisphere. A supposition is voiced that this problem adds difficu...
