Abstract Analysis of infrared images of a surface temperature front off Nova Scotia, taken over a two‐week period, reveals horizontal oscillations with a mean wavelength of 50 km and comparable amplitudes. The oscillations travel downstream with the Nova Scotia Current at a rate of 0.06 m s−1. A...
Abstract Tidal analyses of bottom pressure data are presented for 8 sites on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The principal diurnal and semidiurnal constituents are qualitatively similar to the charts compiled by Godin (1980) but there are quantitative differences. Five of the gauges were moored...
Abstract The development of a tidal model for the west coast of Canada is described. The model is intermediate in resolution between coarse‐gridded global models and fine‐gridded local models; it provides a good representation of the main shelf regions and also includes a substantial area of the...
Abstract On January 10, 1982, a major storm surge occurred in the Atlantic Provinces of Canada, with considerable destruction of property occurring on the eastern part of the south coast of Newfoundland. High water levels also occurred on the south coast of Prince Edward Island but not in Nova...
Résumé La dynamique des ondes planétaires stationnaires est étudiée à l'aide des données de la PEMG de janvier 1979. On a calculé et comparé les moyennes temporelles des divers termes de l'équation du tourbillon. La variance zonale des termes principaux atteint des maxima en trois régions : le...
Abstract The increase of cloud shade with a decrease in solar elevation is explained by a simple cloud model. Analysis of long‐term hourly data on point cloudiness and fraction of bright sunshine for 41 Canadian weather stations has led to empirical relationships between areal cloudiness, point...
