      Seaward movement of shelf water into Gulf Stream meanders and into the circulation of water discharged from the Gulf Stream are identified as important agents effecting this loss. Export of shelf water in the southern zone occurs over middle and outer shelf, as indicated by 5–10 cm s −1 mean off shelf velocities measured by moored current Cited by: Search the list of Atlantic Coast Charts: - MA,, Georges Bank And Nantucket Shoals; - Port of Palm Beach and Approaches; - Cape Canaveral to Key West.

Circulation of shelf waters off the Chesapeake Bight: surface and bottom drift of Continental Shelf waters between Cape Henlopen, Delaware, and Cape Hatteras. Circulation of Shelf Waters Off the Chesapeake Bight Book Summary: This is a study of the movements of the waters of the Chesapeake Bay off the continental shelf.

Shelf Water off Delaware almost reaches the Gulf Stream. Most of the Slope Sea is covered by shelf water. Again, the Gulf Stream can be observed to entrain shelf water off Cape Hatteras. On 28 February (Fig.

2g), part of the shelf water volume appears mixed with the slope water as seen by the light blue patches on the image. The large volume of shelf water has now progressed southwestward Cited by: 2.

The Subtidal Circulation in Delaware Bay and Adjacent Shelf Waters EDWIN H. PAPE III AND RICHARD W. GARVINE College of Marine Studies, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware Surface and seabed drifters were used to study the subtidal circulation in Delaware Bay and over the adjacent continental shelf of the Middle Atlantic Bight.

Analyses of current time series longer than days from 33 sites over the Middle Atlantic Bight continental shelf reveal a consistent mean circulation pattern.

The mean depth-averaged flow is equatorward, alongshelf, and increases with increasing water depth from 3 cm s −1 at the m isobath to 10 cm s −1 at the m by: waters might be g Chl m -2 day -1 across the shelf-break. Such time series lacked depth resolution, however, since the CZCS sampled, at most, the upper 10 m of the water column and the in situ instruments sampled perhaps the lower 5 m at the and m isobaths.

Analyses of current time series longer than days from 33 sites over the Middle Atlantic Bight continental shelf reveal a consistent mean circulation pattern. The mean depth-averaged flow is equator-ward, alongshelf, and increases with increasing water depth from 3 cm s1 at the m isobath to 10 cm s at the m Size: 1MB.

Analyses of two years ( and ) of high-resolution sea surface temperature satellite images of the southern Mid Atlantic Bight (MAB), showed that unusually extensive overhang of shelf water.

Circulation within North Carolina near-bottom shelf waters was investigated between June and April using seabed drifters (SBDs). Seabed drifter trajectories revealed a tendency for onshore components of near-bottom drift in Raleigh Bay; in Onslow Bay, near-bottom currents were complex, generally featuring offshore components in the northern end with a tendency for onshore components Cited by: 3.

The focus of the analysis is the Mid-Atlantic Bight (MAB) shelf-slope system which, like continental shelves throughout the world, contributes to the oceanic budgets of heat, salt, and fresh water.

The strong interannual variability of NCP was not directly due to interannual variability of terrestrial inorganic nitrogen inputs but rather was due to interannual variability in oceanic circulation patterns, which caused significant changes in the along‐shelf and across‐slope horizontal fluxes transporting water into and out of the by: 1.

It has long been known that the classical estuarine circulation of Chesapeake Bay consists of a two-layer flow, with the upper layer discharging low-salinity water onto the continental shelf while the lower layer draws higher-salinity shelf water into the Bay (ref.l).

Beardsley William C. Boicourt Introduction We shall attempt in this chapter to trace the develop-ment of ideas about circulation over the continental shelf in the Middle Atlantic Bight and in the major estuaries which drain into the Middle Atlantic Bight.

There is a mean equatorward along-shelf flow of 5–10 cm s −1 over the continental shelf of the Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB) and southern flank of Georges Bank (e.g., Bumpus ; Beardsley and Boicourt ; Butman and Beardsley ; Lentz ).One might expect a corresponding seasonal variation (annual cycle) in the along-shelf flow because there are well-documented seasonal Cited by: JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH, VOL.
