AbstractThe large-scale circulation of the bottom layer of the Gulf of Mexico is analyzed, with special attention to the historically least studied western basin. The analysis is based on 4 years o Cited by: 4.

The concept of the deepsea oil spill model is similar to that developed for the Gulf of Mexico (Korotenko et al., ; Dietrich et al., ) and recently rebuilt for the Black Sea (Korotenko. The science and art of modeling is deeply rooted in our desire to better describe and understand the world around us: it is imperative that we have some rudimentary knowl-edge of the system to be modeled.

We begin therefore with a summary of observations of the most energetic components of the circulation in the Gulf of Mexico: the Loop Current. A three-dimensional coupled physical-biogeochemical model is applied to simulate and examine temporal and spatial variability of circulation and biogeochemical cycling in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).

During the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, scientists' understanding of the mesoscale surface circulation patterns of the Gulf of Mexico became a topic of great importance.

With the oil slick. The Gulf of Mexico (GoM) is a complex, semi-enclosed basin of great environmental and economic importance. On 20 Aprilthe Deepwater Horizon drilling rig experienced a catastrophic failure, which claimed 11 lives and set off an 87 day oil spill in the GoM. At present, no single ocean model is capable of handling the wide range of scales and complex dynamics necessary to understand the.

In this book, we describe our current state of knowledge on circulation in the Gulf of Mexico through 22 papers at the forefront of research. The view is selective rather than all-inclusive, with primary focus on circulation at the sea surface and at depth, including nearshore flow.

The ocean circulation in the western Gulf of Mexico is influenced by Loop Current eddies (LCEs), which affect the thermohaline structure and distribution of environmental variables as well as the. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

VolumeIssue C7. 15 July Pages Cited by: In this study, current vectors from a high resolution numerical model of the Gulf of Mexico are applied to a simple advection scheme to develop estimates of time and distance scales from probable polyp habitats to areas in which mature scyphomedusae are observed in the northern Gulf of by:   The Loop Current and the warm-core rings that detach from it dominate the upper-layer flow in the Gulf of Mexico.

The well-known primary flow enters the Caribbean Sea from the open Atlantic Ocean, flows into the Gulf of Mexico through the Yucatan Channel, the constriction between Mexico and Cuba, and then leaves the gulf to form the Florida Current and Gulf Stream (see, e.g., Johns et al.

Two oil particle trajectory forecasting systems were developed and applied to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Both systems use ocean current fields from high-resolution numerical ocean circulation model simulations, Lagrangian stochastic models to represent unresolved sub-grid scale variability to advect oil particles, and Monte Carlo-based schemes for Cited by: The Louisiana shelf (LA shelf) in the northern Gulf of Mexico experiences hypoxic conditions every summer due to the combination of eutrophication and strong water column stratification.
