Local and regional features of surface radiation fluxes over the tropical Atlantic ocean near Sao Pedro and Sao Paulo archipelago: Evidence of small scale upwelling
To properly describe the interactions between the ocean and atmosphere, it is necessary to assess a variety of time and spatial scales phenomena. Here, high resolution oceanographic and meteorological data collected during ...
Evolução do rifteamento e paleogeografia da margem Atlântica Equatorial do Brasil: Triássico ao Holoceno
The Equatorial Atlantic Margin evolved from three rift systems recorded by a complex set of sedimentary basins developed since Upper Triassic to the Lower Cretaceous (Albian). The first rift system formed Foz do Amazonas ...
Impacts of interruption of the Agulhas leakage on the tropical Atlantic in coupled ocean-atmosphere simulations
In this paper we use a coupled ocean-atmosphere model to investigate the impact of the interruption of Agulhas leakage of Indian ocean water on the tropical Atlantic, a region where strong coupled ocean-atmosphere interactions ...
Atlantik-wellen (Atlantic Waves)
The title of this postcard is German for "Atlantic Waves" which describes the large swells in the photograph.
Evolução da margem atlântica equatorial do Brasil: Três fases distensivas
The extension of the Pangaea started in the Upper Triassic and evolved to uplifts, magmatism and development a triple junction during the Mesozoic, and opening the Central Atlantic Ocean. The Brazilian Equatorial Atlantic ...
Tides and wind-driven circulation in the tropical and Southern Atlantic Ocean: the BRAZCOAST system
(Institute of Atmospheric PhysicsBeijing, 2014)
The Brazilian coast is characterized by different tidal regimes and distinct meteorological influences. The northern part has larger tidal amplitudes and is permanently affected by trade winds and tropical disturbances; the ...
