Allan R. Robinson was Gordon McKay Professor of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Emeritus, at Harvard University. Recognized as a pioneer and leading expert in modern interdisciplinary ocean dynamics and ocean prediction, he contributed significantly to the techniques for the assimilation of multiscale data into ocean forecasting models and chairs the IOC/UNESCO COASTS program.

Enough heat-flow data are available in the Caribbean Sea to determine some regional patterns, but far more measurements are required for true definition of the heat-flow field. The magnetic field of the Caribbean, as of Decemberis a troublesome by: Located in the Western Hemisphere between North and South America, the Caribbean Sea is bordered on the north and east by the West Indies archipelago, on the south by South America.

Expert petroleum geologists David Roberts and Albert Bally bring you Regional Geology and Tectonics: Principles of Geologic Analysis, volume one in a three-volume series covering Phanerozoic regional geology and has been written to provide you with a detailed overview of geologic rift systems, passive margins, and cratonic basins, it features the basic principles necessary to.

Geographically and bathymetrically, the Caribbean Sea is bound to the north by the Gulf of Mexico, the Yucatan Platform, the Florida-Bahamas Platform and the Puerto.

Below the deepest sill depth (Yucatan Channel; m) and down to the maximum depth (Cayman Trench; m), the stratification of the Caribbean Sea deep water is virtually null.

The upper layer circulation is dominated by the Caribbean Current, which contributes to the heat flux from the tropic to the mid‐latitudes of the North Atlantic by: The hypocenters of approximately Caribbean earthquakes were relocated using a digital computer.

Since a large number of epicenters can now be located with an accuracy of about 10 km, the spatial distribution of earthquakes can be used in detailed investigations of the tectonics of deep‐sea trenches, fault zones, and island arcs.

The AWP is a large body of warm water at °C that extends through the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and the western part of the tropical North Atlantic during the late rainfall season [Wang et al Cited by:   Results show that SSTs are increasing annually for the region.

For the two Caribbean rainy seasons, the Early Rainfall Season (ERS) and the Late Rainfall Season (LRS), estimated trends at °C yr −1 and °C yr −1 were observed, with high statistical significance.

Subregional analysis revealed that warming is greatest in the Gulf of Mexico and north of South America during the. GEOL Regional Geology of North America. Credits 3. 3 Lecture Hours. Regional geology of North America, examining the accumulation and deformation of the rock units involved; structural form and style emphasized; entire geologic history investigated.

Prerequisite: Graduate classification or approval of. This book gathers invited contributions from active researchers to provide an up-to-date overview of the geological setting of the Red Sea. It discusses aspects ranging from historical information to modern research in the Red Sea, and presents findings from rapidly advancing, emerging fields.

The porous boundary of the Caribbean Sea results in this mode exciting a mass exchange with the wider ocean, leading to a dominant mode of bottom pressure variability which is almost uniform over the Grenada, Venezuela, and Colombia basins and has a sharp spectral peak at day period.

Regional geological synopsis of the above requires synthesis of a large volume of literature ranging from local to regional focus and from academic to industrial (mainly hydrocarbon) interest.

The maps are presented at two scales, PS-2 (in back pocket) and PS-I. The Gulf of Mexico is a small ocean basin which, for the last 20 years, has been subject to intensive geological and geophysical investigation.

Much has been learned about its framework, but a host of complex problems remains by:. Summary. The results of marine geophysical surveys across the Lesser Antilles in and by Durham University and the Royal Navy as part of the CICAR Project have revealed that the arc front sediment complex is nearly 20 km thick beneath the Barbados Ridge, where the igneous crust of the Atlantic is subducted beneath the Caribbean by: An integrated geophysical study east of the southern Chagos Laccadive Ridge Complex, Central Indian Ocean Basin: Implications for the Rodriguez Triple Junction dynamics in the Late Cretaceous Maria Ana Desa, T.
