This work focuses on the study of thermal dispersion of plumes emitted by power plants into the sea. Wastewater discharge from power stations causes impacts that require investigation or monitoring. A study to characterize the physical effects of thermal plumes into the sea is carried out here by numerical modeling and field measurements. The case study is the thermal discharges of the Cited by: 4.

  During September and February , the NR/V Alliance extensively sampled the waters of the Sea of Marmara within the framework of the Turkish Straits System (TSS) experiment coordinated by the NATO Undersea Research Centre.

The study is based on recent observations, analysis of historical data, and literature review. A strong flow of Antarctic Bottom Water from the Argentine Basin to the Brazil Basin through the Vema Channel (32 S) is studied on the basis of CTD sections combined with LADCP profiling carried out annually and long-term moored measurements. Kosro et al. [ ] and Huyer et al. [ ] showed that acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) maps of the velocity field reproduced the patterns in the circulation observations derived from conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) measurements. In the drifter tended to be inshore of the high-velocity portion of the meander.

Volume transport was computed for a portion of the survey area using the two velocity data sets and the Ekman transport, computed from the observed wind : Francis L. Daggett. CTD and ADCP data from the Coastal Transition Zone (CTZ) pilot cruise off Point Arena, California, during Junewere combined to make optimal estimates of the current velocity field.

A transect of CTD profiles crossing the North Atlantic Current (NAC) along WOCE line ACM6 near °N during August 1–7,provides geostrophic shear velocity profiles, which were. The structure of the filament observed here is qualitatively different from a dense filament (e.g., McWilliams et al., ) in that the dense isopycnals of the filament do not outcrop near the center of the filament.

In contrast, the halocline above is a low salinity/low density layer on top that actually gets accumulated near the center of Cited by: 6.

The flow patterns of the Gulf Stream warm core rings and surrounding shelf break and slope water are constructed from shipboard acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) transects of the Oleander Pr Cited by: The M/V North Star covered a smaller nearshore area with CTD casts and towed ADCP.

They suggested that the salinity minimum layer water could flow out as the KSBCW. We still do not have a satisfactory explanation, however, on how this cold water reaches the near-bottom layer in the western channel of Korea Strait. A few ADCP measurements have been made to find the non-tidal component of the current in Korea by: The presence of lee waves in these regions is usually inferred from finescale (order m) measurements of variance in velocity shear and isopycnal strain, which show a predominance of upward.

But this value is much higher than the 20 cm s − 1 seen in the surface waters (Fig. 7d) and in general lies at the highest level of the filament velocity range cited in the literature. Verification of this issue and a systematic study of filament exchange are planned, by means of the combination of hydrologic measurements and ADCP data by: The CTD and ADCP data were used to create velocity maps on isopycnals and trajectories of the isopycnal parcels were determined by integrating these velocities with respect to time.

During the second cruise (in early fall ) PV fields around two parcels were studied—both upstream of a meander by: 9. Near-surface drifters were deployed in the California Current System during the period in order to study mean and eddy currents.

The distribution of relative vorticity and vertical velocity within the filament structure are similar between the modeling study and the observations in SS1. The reported length scales of baroclinic instabilities in the model are on the order of 60– km (this represents a half-wavelength).Cited by: Two different sampling strategies were employed throughout the cruise and are illustrated in Fig.
