      Oceans, Tropical. Tropical oceans encircle Earth in an equatorial band between the Tropic of Cancer ( ° North latitude) and the Tropic of Capricorn ( ° South latitude). * The central portions of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and most of the Indian Ocean lie in the tropics. The warm tropical oceans play a critical role in regulating Earth's climate and large-scale weather patterns.

Topics: Ocean temperature--Pacific Ocean, Ocean currents--Pacific Ocean, Ocean-atmosphere Author: Thomas M Smith. This book is an excellent companion to the study of tropical medicine and clinical parasitology for the beginner as well as the experienced pictures, graphs and maps are very good and this edition has been updated and expanded significantly with new illustations, maps, updates of life cycles of parasites, relevant x-rays, clinical pictures and illustrations of parasites and by:   The seasonal cycle and interannual variability in the tropical oceans simulated by three versions of the Flexible Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System (FGOALS) model (FGOALS-g, FGOALS-g2 and FGOALSs2), which have participated in phases 3 and 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP3 and CMIP5), are presented in this paper.

The seasonal cycle of SST in the tropical Pacific Cited by: Annual cycle of sea surface temperature in the tropical Atlantic Ocean James A. Carton and Zengxi Zhou • Department of Meteorology, University of Maryland, College Park Abstract. The strongest temporal variation of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Atlantic occurs at the annual period.

In this paper we examine the causes of the annualCited by: World Ocean Atlas Pacific Ocean. You Searched For: The series of official Cook narratives is the cornerstone of any collection of books relating to the Pacific.

Illustrated with marvellous engravings based on the work of the official artists on the voyages, including Parkinson, Hodges, and Webber, the series stands as the great monument to. The range of the seasonal cycle of the tropical Pacific is approximately 28 × 10 20 J thus exceeding the range of any other latitude belt in an individual ocean.

Overall, the magnitudes of monthly heat content in tropics and for most of the Southern hemisphere in Figure 1 are slightly (up to 10–15%) larger than in similar figures presented in LA The fidelity of the simulations in the tropical eastern Pacific is diagnosed by the annual-mean meridional asymmetry index and the seasonal cycle of the asymmetry index.

The meridional rain asymmetry index (north–south) is defined for each month as the average rain from the equator to 25°N minus the rain from the equator to 25°S, likewise for SST. The dominant statistical mode of tropical Atlantic interannual–decadal atmosphere–ocean variability is an anomalous meridional SST gradient across the mean intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) latitude and a cross-gradient atmospheric boundary layer flow toward the anomalously warmer hemisphere (Nobre and Shukla ; Chang et al.

In the present-day climate, surface water salinities are low in the western tropical Pacific Ocean and increase towards the eastern part of the basin1. The salinity of surface waters in the. We propose a dynamical interpretation of the inverse relationship between the tropical eastern Pacific annual-cycle (AC) amplitude and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) amplitude, based on a pre-industrial simulation of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory Couple climate model with a fixed concentration of greenhouse gases spanning approximately years.

To date only a few regional organisations or arrangements, which are more and less effective, exist and only for tuna. The oldest Commission is the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission, which was established by the Convention of the same name signed in to regulate yellow-fish and skipjack tuna fishing in the Eastern Pacific.

A recent work proposed a simple theory based on the framework of Zebiak–Cane (ZC) ocean model, and successfully characterized the equatorial Atlantic upwelling annual cycle as a combination of the local wind-driven Ekman upwelling and nonlocal wind-driven wave upwelling.

In the present work, utilizing the same simple framework, we examined the fidelity of the upwelling Pacific annual cycle. The results confirm a previous study of the annual cycle based on shipboard oceanographic observations. Based on ten SWFSC cetacean and ecosystem surveys of the eastern tropical Pacific duringwe estimated spatial distributions of the abundance commonly encountered cetaceans with generalized additive models that relate observed.

Introduction. The Costa Rica Dome, located off the coast of Central America, is a shoaling of the generally strong (large dT/dz) and shallow thermocline of the eastern tropical Pacific was first observed in (Wyrtki, ) and first described by Cromwell ().The dome has been observed and studied several times since the late s, when a productive tuna fishery began to.

The lack of obstacles such as large equatorial islands or nearby coastlines in the central tropical Pacific compared to the Indian Ocean also help to allow the waves to propagate freely. [1] This study examines the impacts of the Indian Ocean on the ENSO (El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation) cycle by performing experiments with a coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (CGCM).

In one of the experiments, the ocean model domain includes only the tropical Pacific Ocean (the Pacific. The Tara Oceans eukaryote gene catalog.

The tropical Pacific is, moreover, characterized by the highest rain rates in the world ocean (up to mm per year), by significant rainfall variations associated with the seasonal migration and intensification of major convergence zones (e.g., the Intertropical Convergence Zone and the South Pacific Convergence Zone), and by major.

SST and AT increase toward the eastern tropical oceans, revealing a southeastern propagation of the annual cycle over the Northern Hemisphere oceans.

The annual cycle of AT leads that of SST by 1–3 weeks. The largest phase differences are observed in the regions of western boundary currents in the North Pacific and the North Atlantic oceans.

The global monsoon arises from and manifests itself as a response of the coupled atmosphere–land–ocean system to the annual variation in the solar radiation. As shown in Fig. 3, Fig. 4, the global monsoon dominates the seasonal variation of the tropical precipitation and the lower tropospheric circulation.

The Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) project is a major international effort that instrumented the entire tropical Pacific Ocean with approximately 70 deep ocean development of the TAO array in was motivated by the El Niño event and ultimately designed for the study of year-to-year climate variations related to El Niño and the Southern Oscillation (ENSO).
