    The Gulf of Maine extends from Cape Cod in Massachusetts, to the coasts of New Hampshire, Maine, and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, and to Cape Sable, Nova Scotia. An important part of the Gulf is Casco Bay, which supports substantial varieties of marine life, but is in the midst of the highest concentration. The National Ocean Service (NOS) of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is developing an operational nowcast/forecast system for the Gulf of Maine (GoMOFS). The system aims to produce real-time nowcasts and short-range forecast guidance for water levels, 3-dimensional currents, water temperature, and salinity over the broad GoM by: 5.

      Internal tidal energy moving south from Georges Bank that stems from the strong Gulf of Maine tidal currents appears to branch at 36° –37°N, with a flux of about 1 kW m −1 directed westward against the Gulf Stream main jet. Because the Gulf Stream meanders with a time constant much shorter than a month, the mean vectors are the sum of Author: Timothy F. Duda, Ying-Tsong Lin, Maarten C. Buijsman, Arthur E. Newhall. Maine Tidal Energy Company, a subsidiary of Oceana Energy of Washington, D.C., received a preliminary permit from FERC in June to study developing a tidal power project in the Kennebec River just north of Bath. The $ million device, (U.S.) which can generate 32 KW in a 6-knot tidal current, was completed and installed in December,

A numerical investigation of tidal current circulation in the Gulf of Maine by Arthur Paul Drennan Download PDF EPUB FB2

The gulf discharges water as a surface current around Nantucket Shoals to the westward; to some extent around the eastern end of Georges Bank;"and so out through the Eastern Channel. Itis not likely that the gulf es water from the oceanic abyss, by upwelling, or directly from the Labrador current.

CIRCULATION IN THE GULF OF MAINE. Circulation. Introduction: The highest tides on earth occur in the Gulf of Maine, ranging as much as 16 meters (52 feet) in the Minas Basin in the easternmost reaches of the Bay of ranges in the Gulf decrease from east to west, but are everywhere greater than the world wide average of about a meter (3 feet).

@article{osti_, title = {Numerical model investigation of tidal phenomena in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine}, author = {Greenberg, D A}, abstractNote = {A numerical model is developed to examine tidal properties of the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine.

The model is run with a pure M2 tidal input on the open boundary, and calibrated by adjusting the friction. Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS) During the winter ofNOS's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) and the Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS) discussed how both groups could mutually benefit from the observing systems that they operate in the Gulf of Maine.

The Gulf of Maine’s high rate of primary production was first documented by Henry Bryant Bigelow (Bigelow,; Bigelow et al., ). Levels of primary production in offshore waters, the least productive areas in the Gulf of Maine, average about gC m-2 yr-l (O’Reilly and Busch, ; O’Reilly et al., ).

The Bay of Fundy in eastern Canada has the highest tides in the world. Harnessing the tidal energy in the region has long been considered. In this study, the effects of tidal in-stream energy extraction in the Minas Passage on the three-dimensional (3D) tidal circulation in the Bay of Fundy (BoF) and the Gulf of Maine (GoM) are examined using a Cited by: Cobscook Bay is a macrotidal estuary situated near the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, where the mean semi-diurnal tidal range is 57 m.

Vigorous tidal currents in the bay maintain cold water temperatures year-round and effectively exchange nutrients and other dissolved matter with offshore by: The distribution of SIMPSON and HUNTER'S (, Nature, ,) tidal mixing parameter in the Gulf of Maine region, calculated from GRI'I~NBI RG'S (, Journal ()1" Physical Oceanography.

CO-OPS provides the national infrastructure, science, and technical expertise to monitor, assess, and distribute tide, current, water level, and other coastal oceanographic products and services that support NOAA's mission of environmental stewardship and environmental assessment and prediction.

CO-OPS provides operationally sound observations and monitoring capabilities. The Great South Channel (GSC) region in the western Gulf of Maine (GoM; Fig.

1) is characterized by prominent eddy motion activity that is directly coupled with tidal motion (Brown et al., submitted for publication).This region is a critical area of sea scallop recruitment (Stokesbury and Harris, ), and understanding its physical processes would help to improve Cited by: 2.

As part of a broader study of ocean downscaling, the seasonal and tidal variability of the Gulf of Maine and Scotian shelf, and their dynamical interaction, are investigated using a high-resolution (1/36°) circulation by: 8.

Truea, James P. Manningb aMathematics Dept., Norwich University, Northfield, VT USA bNor t heas F is r e Sc nc Cent, Woods Hol, MA USA Abstract One of the most important coastal regions along the mile coast of Maine is Casco Bay. Wind and marine renewable energy devices create electricity by capturing natural mechanical energy and converting it to electricity.

By removing or altering this energy, the physical environment may change. Wind turbines can alter wind speeds, air circulation, and potentially nearfield atmospheric interactions.

Marine renewable energy devices can change the flow of. In addition, complex bathymetry in the Gulf of Maine, including the presence of channels, basins, and banks, influences subtidal circulation. Subtidal circulation in the Gulf includes a nearshore surface component ("buoyant" water with freshwater input, at depths above m) and deep component (more dense, "salty" water, at depths below m).

A Model Study of the Seasonal Circulation in the Gulf of Maine HUIJIE XUE,FEI CHAI, AND NEAL R. PETTIGREW School of Marine Sciences, University of Maine, Orono, Maine (Manuscript received 28 Mayin final form 24 June ) ABSTRACT The Princeton Ocean Model is used to study the circulation in the Gulf of Maine and its seasonal transition.

The Gulf of Maine (French: Golfe du Maine) is a large gulf of the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast of North is bounded by Cape Cod at the eastern tip of Massachusetts in the southwest and by Cape Sable Island at the southern tip of Nova Scotia in the northeast.

The gulf includes the entire coastlines of the U.S. states of New Hampshire and Maine, as well as River sources: Saint John River, Penobscot River. A study was conducted for Long Beach Harbor to numerically investigate tidal circulation in existing basins and to define and evaluate the impact of possible.
