In collaboration with NOAA colleagues Dr. Dan Seidov, Dr. Rost Parsons, and others, ESSIC Associate Research Scientist Dr. Alexey Mishonov and ESSIC / CICS-MD Senior Faculty Specialist James Reagan recently published an article titled, “Regional Climatology of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean: High-Resolution Mapping of Ocean Structure and Change” in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
The article discusses the Northwest Atlantic Regional Ocean Climatology, a recent high-resolution in situ data mapping of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Multiple high-resolution climatologies are now available from NOAA/NCEI (see https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/OC5/regional_climate/) in select regions of the World Ocean as a result of the increase in volume of available ocean profile data.
Mishonov and Reagan also collaborated with Drs. Seidov and Parsons on a subsequent article recently published in JGR-Oceans titled, “Eddy-Resolving In Situ Ocean Climatologies of Temperature and Salinity in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean.”
Mishonov is a researcher with extensive experience in various fields of oceanography, including ocean color, water transmissivity, particulate organic carbon research, oceanographic data management and analysis as well as ocean climate change.
Reagan is affiliated with NOAA and the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) where his current research focuses on attaining a better understanding of salinity/freshwater variability in the global ocean, which could shed new light on the hydrological cycle.
