The Subtropical Frontal Zone (or convergence), at about 32°N in the central and eastern Pacific, separates the eastward North Pacific Current from the westward NEC. With increasing depth, the subtropical gyre shrinks toward the west and toward Japan, and decreases in strength. Generic term for a non-frontal synoptic-scale cyclone originating over warm tropical or subtropical ocean waters with cyclonic surface wind circulation.

Tropical Depression A tropical cyclone in which the sustained surface wind is at least 37 km per hr (23 mph) but less than 63 km per hr (39 mph); an early stage in the development of a hurricane. Rutger Rosenberg, in Managing Ocean Environments in a Changing Climate, OMZs and Open Ocean Decline in Oxygen.

OMZ is a term used to refer to persistent, natural, oceanic low oxygen features that occur at mid-water depths. They are most widespread in the eastern Pacific, off the western coast of continents, and the northern Indian Ocean. Start studying GEOG Exam 2.

Oceanography (compound of the Greek words ὠκεανός meaning "ocean" and γράφω meaning "write"), also known as oceanology, is the study of the physical and biological aspects of the is an important Earth science, which covers a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea.

The nature of the Cretaceous oceans has been enigmatic since it was recognized that the chalk deposits of North America, Europe, and Asia were similar to modern deep-sea pelagic oozes (Huxley,a, b; Parker and Jones, ).The mystery deepened when it was found that there had been extensive deposition of black, organic–carbon–rich shales in the deep sea (Ewing et al., ).

A total of ~3, km of transect lines would be surveyed in the Northeast Pacific Ocean: ~3, km during the 3-D survey (including run ins and run outs) and km during the 2-D survey. There could be additional seismic operations associated with turns, airgun testing, and repeat coverage of any areas where initial data quality is sub-standard.

Adaptive radiation is one of the most important outcomes of the process of evolution, and islands are places where it is best observed. The term itself was first used by H. Osborn in in describing parallel adaptations and convergence of species groups on different land masses. subtropical meteorol winds wind tropical circulation east india upper synoptic convergence jet heat low variation squall Post a Review You can write a book review and share your experiences.

Geology, 46 (4), doi: /GNote that a low-pressure area lies along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) in the equatorial region. This is due to the higher temperatures maintained throughout the year in this region.

At the poles, permanent high-pressure areas remain near the surface because of the low temperatures in this area throughout the entire year.
