A time dependent, vertical plane mathematical model of nitrate distribution in Onslow Bay, North Carolina, is developed using similarity theory and conventional numerical techniques.

Inputs of nitrate into Onslow Bay are the result of Gulf Stream intrusions (Atkinson et al., ) and this forcing is included as a boundary condition for this by: Summer The remaining four measurements of subsurface volumes result from intensive observations during July and August During this period surface temperatures Volume of summer subsurface intrusions into Onslow Bay, North Carolina 5 0 5 0 5 ~ 5 0, ~~^~ 5OOKOUT.~., (94 ~>'~ ~ ~ ~.= ~' \/Cited by: These plumes dominated the surface salinity structure over the inner half of the shelf in Onslow Bay during 14–15 July and 21–23 July In addition, a southwesterly flow of waters from Raleigh Bay into Onslow Bay Onslow Bay physical/dynamical experiments also observed during the same by: 8.

THE EVENT: 20 JULY TO 8 AUGUST Hydrographic observations and measurements by moored meters were made in Onslow Bay throughout the period 12 July to 28 September The event chosen for description occurred from 20 July to 8 August and is well defined by temperature, current, and hydrographic by: Onslow Bay, North Carolina continental shelf.

Fishes associated with the tugboat were censused by divers on three dates during the same period using a modification of the stationary survey technique (Bohnsack and Bannerot, ). Diver surveys included counts of fishes located upstream, downstream, and normal to the tugboat current field.

The microphytobenthos consists of unicellular eukaryotic algae and cyanobacteria that grow within the upper several millimeters of illuminated sediments, typically appearing only as a subtle brownish or greenish shading. The surficial layer of the sediment is a zone of intense microbial and geochemical activity and of considerable physical reworking.

The US study area, located in the northeastern part of Onslow Bay (approximately 34°N), includes near-shore waters, Beaufort Inlet and the Newport River Estuary ().Onslow Bay is a cuspate-shaped semi-enclosed bay from which the bottom slopes gently over a distance of approximately km to the shelf break (Pietrafesa, ).The near-shore sediments are fine Cited by: Onslow Bay (71 words) exact match in snippet view article find links to article no protection from oceanic swells.

The book covers a wide range of topics and describes experimental procedures designed to develop students' understanding of subjects such as the general properties of matter, light and sound, heat and thermodynamics, magnetism, electricity and electronics and the use of computing in nuclear by: 1.

where ρ r and ρ a are the reference and perturbation densities, respectively. The density ρ r is generally chosen to be the time-mean and area-mean density that is a constant at a given depth.

The value ρ 0 = kg m −3 is the constant part of the reference density. According to the density decomposition in Eq., the pressure p is also split as p = p r + p by: PAM is also used to support efforts to mitigate potential negative effects of human activities such as ship traffic, military and civilian sonar and offshore exploration.

This paper surveys the formalism and applications of the postclassical turbulence mechanics (PCTM) grounded on the characterization of turbulent flow field in infinitesimal surroundings of the flow field points besides the flow velocity at these points also by the curvature of the velocity fluctuation streamlines passing these points.
