Ocean-atmosphere interaction

Processes, including momentum, heat, gas and other exchanges, which result in profound effects on climate and interactions between the air in the lowest part of the atmosphere and the oceans.
This category is also used for El Nino and La Nina.

Mean high water (MHW) shorelines along the coast of California used to calculated shoreline change from 1998 to 2016

This dataset contains mean high water (MHW) shorelines for sandy beaches along the coast of California for the years 1998/2002, 2015, and 2016. The MHW elevation in each analysis region (Northern, Central, and Southern California) maintained consistency with that of the National Assessment of Shoreline Change. The operational MHW line was extracted from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) digital elevation models (DEMs) using the ArcGIS smoothed contour method. The smoothed contour line was then quality ...

Shoreline change data along the coast of California from 2015 to 2016

This dataset contains shoreline change measurements for sandy beaches along the coast of California over the 2015/2016 El Nino winter season. Mean high water (MHW) shorelines were extracted from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) digital elevation models from the fall of 2015 and the spring of 2016 using the ArcGIS smoothed contour method. The MHW elevation in each analysis region (Northern, Central, and Southern California) maintained consistency with that of the National Assessment of Shoreline Change. ...

Shoreline change rates along the coast of California from 1998 to 2016

This dataset contains California shoreline change rates derived from mean high water (MHW) shorelines from 1998 (in Central and Southern California) and 2002 (in Northern California) to 2016. The MHW elevation in each analysis region (Northern, Central, and Southern California) maintained consistency with that of the National Assessment of Shoreline Change. The operational MHW line was extracted from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) digital elevation models (DEMs) using the ArcGIS smoothed contour method ...

Data and calculations to support the study of the sea-air flux of methane and carbon dioxide on the West Spitsbergen margin in June 2014

A critical question for assessing global greenhouse gas budgets is how much of the methane that escapes from seafloor cold seep sites to the overlying water column eventually crosses the sea-air interface and reaches the atmosphere. The issue is particularly important in Arctic Ocean waters since rapid warming there increases the likelihood that gas hydrate--an ice-like form of methane and water stable at particular pressure and temperature conditions within marine sediments--will break down and release its ...
