envelopes) is explored through a linear regression analysis of the EOF time series against τ x (along-bay wind stress), a 12 (the sea level envelope of the semidiurnal tide), and a 24 (the sea level envelope of the diurnal tide). The analysis is succinctly described in the appendix . The contribution of individual forcing functions to the circulation is identified by low p values. Regressions with the use of a lagged wind stress showed lower skills, hence the present choice of no lag

comparable to the linear correlation reported in Leben (2005) . Equation (5) will be tested as part of the data analysis. At this point, two aspects of Eq. (1) need to be discussed. First, we assumed that H and W are constants. The justification for this assumption comes from observations and theoretical considerations: 1) Sheinbaum et al. (2002) show that H ∼ 800 m and is set by the channel depth off Miami; 2) observations in the LC confirm the two-layer approximation with an interface

b are realizations of two random variables, say, A and B , respectively. Then, the storm peak probability density function (pdf) p A ( a ) = Pr[ A ∈ ( a , a + da )] is not fitted directly to the observed storm peak data via ad hoc regressions, but it follows analytically by requiring that the average times spent by the equivalent and actual storm sequences above any threshold h be identical. So, the significant wave height history or the actual storm sequence is stochastically

. Thesystematic dependences of the difference between scatterometer winds and ship winds on sea surface temperatureand atmospheric stability are identified. The quality of ship reports is not ideal but should not depend onalmospheric stability or sea surface temperature. The systematic dependences, therefore, may reflect the characteristics of scatterometer winds. Multivariate regressions are used to extract the independent effects of different factors on the wind speeddifferences. The difference between

margin for error. Fig. 7c shows themost reliable result.$. Summary In their purported analyses of relative diffusion,Kao et al. (1968) fail to make clear that their basicassumption of a stationary separation process is validonly if the particle motions are independent. In thatlimit relative diffusion, in effect, is absolute diffusion and the analysis of Kao et al. (1968) is inappropriately titled. Kirwan et al. (1978) add to the confusion. They do not state that a stationary separationprocess is

timescale, τ f = 1/(2 πbf  ). (2) The relaxation parameter may or may not be a function of nondimensional wave frequency or of wave age, c / U, where c = g /( 2π f  ) is the wave phase speed and U is the wind speed ( g being acceleration of gravity). Hasselmann et al. (1980) applied the above relaxation model to several wind turning events in which the wind shifts could be described as either more or less steplike or continuously rotating in nature. From a one parameter regression analysis

. It is ourfirm belief that the same model would also apply to thelower-frequency motions except for the fact that themesoscale eddies introduce a large, incoherent signalinto our analysis. The reason for filtering high frequencies out of our simple regression model is that phase isa function of frequency for periods shorter than 5 days.Thus a simple regression model, independent of timelag, would not apply to these motions. The results in Figs. 3a and 3b show that, for thecoherent 5 to 20 day

Fig. 1a ). The resulting phase speed obtained from the fitted curve was used to integrate the model in this study. Results obtained from the model run were compared with satellite altimetry in terms of pattern correlation and neutral regression coefficients computed using longitude–time sections of SSH anomalies at each latitude. In contrast to standard regression analysis, neutral regression coefficients are calculated by minimizing the sum of the square distances between the regression line and
