Examples

  • Hasselman, 1976 in the asymptotic limit where complicating processes such as advective and diffusive exchanges of heat with the deep ocean are ignored e.g.

    Climate Insensitivity and AR(1) Models « Climate Audit

  • This is very likely to alter the advective pathways and basin residence times of sea ice formed in winter on the Eurasian shelves.

    Anticipated changes in physical conditions in the Arctic

  • Along the coastal belt, precipitation from advective fog exceeds precipitation from rainfall.

    Water profile of Namibia

  • On the exposed hills and ridges facing southwest, the phenomenon of advective fog occurs, bringing moisture to the desert and leading to lomas vegetation.

    Sechura desert

  • Given the near dearth of empirical observations, measurements, and actual knowledge about the effects of carbon aerosols and cloud formations upon convective, advective, and radiative heat transport mechanisms in the atmosphere, how can any claims or conclusions about the effects of emissions be reasonably supportable as a true application of science?

    RMS and Sulphate Emissions « Climate Audit

  • These include turbluent mixing, advective and convective processes, as well as mecanical mixing.

    Letter to NAS « Climate Audit

  • Mass average flux resulting from combined advection and diffusion is shown to be evaluated as the vector sum of advective and diffusive fluxes, rather than diffusive flux being evaluated as a flux relative to a mass average flux.

  • These include components of suggested periodic nature, large-scale advective effects, regional processes, and atmospheric teleconnections.

    Scientific Blogging

  • Our measurements provide evidence for a rapid advective pathway for the transmission of oceanic variability to the ice-sheet margins.
