About the Edition

The results of an initial quantitative study to define the physical oceanography of Johnston Atoll"s lagoon circulation is presented. A bathymetric data base of the Island has been manually digitized from Navigational charts. A numerical model designed to predict the seiche modes of basins in two and three dimensions, in elliptic and Cartesian coordinates is developed, which seems to represent accurately the free modes of oscillation observed in current meter records. The numerical model is suitable for applications using a personal computer equipped with MATLAB (4.0) or later, and has applicability to basins of arbitrary shape in two dimensions, and rectangular, elliptical or circular symmetry in three dimensions. An analysis of currents within the lagoon at Johnston Atoll shows highly polarized tidal flow, phase locked to the diurnal tide. Spectral energy content of current meter records show six fundamental oscillatory modes and harmonics of tidal components.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center (PCMSC) initiated an investigation in the National Park Service’s (NPS) War in the Pacific National Historical Park (WAPA) to provide baseline scientific information on coastal circulation and water-column properties along west-central Guam, focusing on WAPA’s Agat Unit, as it relates to the transport and. In , Thor Heyerdahl sailed a simple raft from Peru to Polynesia, following the ocean currents for more than 6, Km. Which statement accurately describes what Heyerdahl proved by this voyage? a) Ancient Peru was settled by people from Polynesia. In the North Pacific Ocean, two cold currents flow from the Arctic Ocean-Oya Siwo Current and Okhotsk Current. The cold Oya Shio/Siwo Current flows along the east coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. The cold Okhotsk Current flows past Sakhalin to merge with the Oya Siwo Current . Palmyra Atoll (/ p æ l ˈ m aɪ r ə /) is one of the Northern Line Islands (southeast of Kingman Reef and north of Kiribati Line Islands), located almost due south of the Hawaiian Islands, roughly one-third of the way between Hawaii and American nearest continent is almost 3, miles (5, kilometers) to the atoll is sq mi (12 km 2), and it is located in the Country: United States.

The deployment of a land-based Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plant in South Tarawa, Kiribati, Pacific Islands Region, in /, represents a major technical achievement, alongside an international development opportunity. Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS) are archipelago nations with small land areas and large oceanic exclusive economic zones.

Similar island surface responses have been found by Webb and Kench (), who studied 27 other atoll A modal analysis of currents in a Pacific atoll lagoon book in the central Pacific, using historical aerial photography and satellite images over periods ranging from 19 to 61 years, during which time interval they say that instrumental records indicated a rate of sea-level rise of mm per.

Current rates of sea level rise are widely believed to have destabilised islands promoting widespread erosion and threatening the existence of atoll nations.

The lagoon contains numerous patch reefs and faros, which are patch reefs with centrally enclosed lagoons or by: major surface currents: clockwise North Pacific Gyre formed by the warm northward flowing Kuroshio Current in the west, the eastward flowing North Pacific Current in the north, the southward flowing cold California Current in the east, and the westward flowing North Equatorial Current in the south; the counterclockwise South Pacific Gyre composed of the southward flowing warm East Australian Current in the west, the eastward flowing South Pacific Current.

The propagation of weakly dispersive modal pulses is investigated using data collected during the long-range ocean acoustic propagation experiment (LOAPEX).

Weakly dispersive modal pulses are characterized by weak dispersion- and scattering-induced pulse broadening; such modal pulses experience minimal propagation-induced distortion and are thus well suited to communications Cited by: 7.

Lagoon during a “norther” wind that keeps the tide out for several days, resulting in shallow-water salt works kept exposed above water.

The salt works were located along the shores of Punta Ycacos Lagoon where solar evaporation in the dry season meant that the salt water lagoon was more saline than the open waters of the adjacent Caribbean.
