Dynamics of Ocean Circulation [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   

Ocean circulation describes the amplitude and pathways of fluid transport within the world’s oceans. It is responsible for the transport of mass and heat, chemical constituents, and biological organisms throughout the ocean basins. Oceanic motion contributes significantly to the planet’s meridional heat transport and helps define oceanic regions fertile for biological growth. In the time mean, a general structure to the circulation exists and can be described phenomenologically and dynamically. For example, the Gulf Stream is a very well-known feature in the western North Atlantic Ocean. This ocean current is among the fastest on Earth and is part of the
