  • Ocean velocities as inferred from Argo floats: methodology and applications 

    Rosell-Fieschi, Miquel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07-03)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    The velocity fields inferred from the trajectories of Argo floats have proven to be a valuable tool for observing the major ocean currents. The velocity fields can be used to examine statistical properties at regional and ...
  • On the circulation of the North Atlantic shadow zone 

    Peña Izquierdo, Jesús (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02-20)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Regions isolated from the wind-driven circulation are found in the eastern margins of the world's tropical oceans. The weak and stagnant circulation of these so-called “shadow zones”, in combination with the intense ...
  • Water mass variability in the eastern South Pacific and the ventilation of the oxygen minimum zone 

    Llanillo del Río, Pedro José (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10-29)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    This dissertation aims at extending our knowledge of the ESP OMZ through two main approaches. The first approach is based on tracer analysis and inverse modeling techniques. Such techniques are applied to hydrographic ...
  • Wind-driven currents in the coastal and equatorial upwelling regions 

    Castellanos Ossa, Paola (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-11-12)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    During the last two decades the scientific community has recognised the importance of the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the upwelling regions on the Earth's climate. This recognition has opened new questions such as: ¿What ...
