Environmental guide to the Virginia Capes operating area by Alvan Fisher( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general oceanography of the Virginia Capes (VACAPES) area is discussed with particular emphasis on near-surface thermal structure of water masses and oceanic fronts. Warm, saline Gulf Stream-Water, identified by temperature equal to or greater than 15 Celsius (C) at the 200-meter (m) level, is characterized by mean monthly sea surface temperature (SST) and sonic layer depth (SLD) ranging from 21 C and 78 m, respectively, in winter to 28 C and 25 m in summer. Slope Water, identified by temperatures between 9 and 15 C at the 200-m level, is characterized by a temperature inversion in spring and mean monthly SST and SLD ranging from 11 C and 203m, respectively, in winter to 25 C and 6m in summer. Relatively fresh Shelf Water, found on the Continental Shelf between the 30-m and 200-m isobaths, is characterized by a positive in-layer temperature gradient in winter and mean monthly SST ranging from 7 C in winter to 25 C in summer. SLD is at the bottom in winter and is 3m in summer. Two major oceanic fronts occur in the VACAPES area: the northern edge of the Gulf Stream separating Gulf Stream Water from Slope Water and the slope front separating Shelf Water from Slope Water
Aerial observation of Gulf Stream phenomena Virginia Capes area, October 1968-May 1969 by Alvan Fisher( Book )

ASWEPS shallow water investigation Virginia Capes area, February-March 1967 by Alvan Fisher( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thermal structure of a rectangular area approximately 130 kilometers on a slide over the Continental Shelf seaward of the Virginia Capes was investigated between 24 February and 11 March 1967. Sea surface temperature patterns agree with previous surveys in that isotherm orientation generally paralleled the coast with highest temperatures observed offshore. Zero or positive vertical temperature gradients predominated, but some transient negative gradients occurred. Warm water in the southeastern quadrant of the survey area is probably Gulf Stream water advected northwestward into the survey area. The warm water moved northward during the survey. Chesapeake Bay discharge flowed seaward south of Cape Henry. On the basis of this survey, the development of thermal structure prediction techniques appears feasible providing a knowledge of local conditions and sufficient synoptic data are available. (Author)

Oceanographic analysis manual for on-scene prediction systems by Alvan Fisher( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is intended to acquaint Naval personnel having minimal oceanographic training with techniques used to prepare an oceanographic analysis as an initial step in acoustic performance prediction. Oceanographic data are discussed with particular emphasis on the quality control of expendable bathythermograph (XBT) data. Oceanic features, such as water masses and boundaries, are reviewed to provide background information necessary for meaningful analysis. A sample analysis is made to assist the inexperienced analyst in methods used. Finally, the process of selecting data representative of each water mass for input into acoustic models is discussed.
