Eddy-induced transport tensors in the Atlantic

Igor Kamenkovich & Luolin Sun
This data set contains results from numerical simulations used to study stirring of water by mesoscale currents (“eddies”). This stirring leads to large-scale transport of oceanic properties (“tracers”). These eddy-induced transports can in turn be related to the large-scale tracer gradients, using a transport tensor. The concept is widely used to describe these transports in the real ocean and to represent them in climate models. The data in this repository include several tracer diagnostics and...

Daily and yearly average nitrate and sulfate aerosol mass concentrations measured at Ragged Point, Barbados from 1989-2011

Cassandra Gaston, Joseph Prospero, L Custals, E Blades, P Sealy & J.A. Christie
Here we present the nitrate and sulfate particle data that corresponds to the manuscript “Twenty Years of Measurements at Barbados Reveal Different Trends in Trade Wind Aerosol Nitrate and Sulfate: Why has Sulfate Increased While Nitrate Remains Constant?” Sulfate and nitrate aerosols degrade air quality and modulate radiative forcing and the hydrological cycle. Emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) and meteorological factors determine how widespread these impacts are. To determine these impacts...

African smoke particles act as cloud condensation nuclei in the wintertime tropical North Atlantic boundary layer over Barbados

Haley Royer, Mira Pöhlker, Ovid Oktavian Krueger, Edmund Blades, Peter Sealy, Nurun Nahar Lata, Zezhen Cheng, Swarup China, Andrew Ault, Patricia Quinn, Paquita Zuidema, Christopher Pöhlker, Ulrich Pöschl, Meinrat Andreae & Cassandra Gaston
The number concentration and properties of aerosol particles serving as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) are important for understanding cloud properties, including in the tropical Atlantic marine boundary layer (MBL), where marine cumulus clouds reflect incoming solar radiation and obscure the low-albedo ocean surface. Studies linking aerosol source, composition, and water uptake properties in this region have been conducted primarily during the summertime dust transport season, despite the region receiving a variety of aerosol particle types...

Data for atmospheric transport of North African dust-bearing supermicron freshwater diatoms to South America: implications for iron transport to the equatorial North Atlantic Ocean

Anne Barkley, Nicole Olson, Joseph Prospero, Alexandre Gatineau, Kathy Panechou, Nancy Maynard, Patricia Blackwelder, Swarup China, Andrew Ault & Cassandra Gaston
The equatorial North Atlantic Ocean (NAO) is a nutrient-limited ecosystem that relies on the deposition of long-range transported iron (Fe)-containing aerosols to stimulate primary productivity. Using microscopy, we characterized supermicron and super-coarse mode African aerosols transported to the western NAO in boreal winter/spring. We detected three particle types including African dust, primary biological aerosol particles, and freshwater diatoms (FDs). FDs contained 4% Fe by weight due to surficial dust inclusions that may be susceptible to...

Idealized tropical cyclone simulations under homogenized radiative heating configurations

Shun-Nan Wu, Brian Soden & David Nolan
This data set contains the initial input and revised radiative script for numerical simulations used to study the role of radiative heating in tropical cyclone intensification. Radiative heating from clods can substantially modulate the evolution of tropical cyclone, especially at its early stage. The concept is that the contrast in radiative heating from clouds between convective area and environments is a key to strengthen tropical cyclone intensity. These sensitivity experiments associated with the provided input...

Quasi-geostrophic, Three-layer Model

Mykhailo Rudko
This is a finite-difference, three-layer, quasi-geosotrophic model. The governing equations are the conservation of potential vorticity in each layer with added viscous terms and wind forcing (Pedlosky, 1987). This model simulates the mildatitude dynamics in the ocean. The nonlinear term is discretized with Arakawa energy, enstrophy and symmetry conserving scheme. Partial slip boundary conditions are applied. To compile, please, type "make qg_dg".

Data for Interannual variability in the source location of North African dust transported to the Amazon

Cassandra Gaston, A Pourmand, J Longman, A Sharifi, Joseph Prospero, K Panechou, N Bakker, N Drake, D Guioiseau & Anne Barkley
Here, we present the data and MixSIAR code that corresponds to the manuscript “Interannual variability in the source location of North African dust transported to the Amazon.” African dust is seasonally transported to the western Tropical Atlantic Ocean (TAO) and South America (SA), including the Amazon Basin. Leading hypotheses suggest that either the Western North African potential source area (PSA) or the Central North African PSA (e.g., Bodélé Depression) is the main source of dust...

Data for Origins of Mixed Layer Depth Variability in the Southern Ocean

Yu Gao, Igor Kamenkovich & Natalie Perlin
Mixed-layer depth (MLD) exhibits significant variability, which is important for atmosphere-ocean exchanges of heat and atmospheric gases. Origins of the MLD variability at the oceanic mesoscale in the Southern Ocean are studied here in an idealized Regional Ocean-Atmosphere Model (ROAM). The main conclusion from the analysis of the upper-ocean buoyancy budget is that, while the atmospheric forcing and oceanic vertical mixing induce the MLD variability on average, the oceanic advection of buoyancy counteracts and partially...

Spray Concentration Measurements from ASIST for Freshwater and Seawater

Andrew W Smith, Brian K Haus, Sanchit Mehta & David G Ortiz-Suslow
The size-dependent vertical distribution of spume particles in high wind conditions is necessary to understand their effect on air-sea fluxes of heat and momentum. The predominant focus of previous studies of spray dynamics has been on the marine environment. Spray dynamics in non-seawater bodies have not been extensively studied, and any significant differences between sea and freshwater remain unquantified. To address this gap, we have conducted the first laboratory experiment directly comparing spume concentrations above...
