This report describes and presents the hydrodynamic meaurements made during the Atlantic Shelf Sand Ridge Study at and near Peahala Ridge, offshore of Long Beach Island, New Jersey, in Spring 1985. The intent of this phase of the study was to examine the physical oceanographic and fluid mechanical processes in the vicinity of Peahala Ridge, one of the large shore-oblique sand ridges common in the area, and from this to identify those processes responsible for sand transport near the ridge with particular reference to its generation, maintenance and migration. The field measurement program was carried out from March to May 1985 by scientists and staff of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. It included measurements of currents, temperature, waves, pressure and near-bed velocity profiles. This phase was part of a larger oil industry study that included extensive geological and geophysical measurements of Peahala Ridge and other ridge-and-swale areas of the mid-Atlantic continental shelf.

Twining, Benjamin S. (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2017-06-21)Phytoplankton contribute significantly to global C cycling and serve as the base of ocean food webs. Phytoplankton require trace metals for growth and also mediate the vertical distributions of many metals in the ocean. ...
Crustal structure of the Trans-Atlantic Geotraverse (TAG) segment (Mid-Atlantic Ridge, 26°10′N) : implications for the nature of hydrothermal circulation and detachment faulting at slow spreading ridges Canales, J. Pablo; Sohn, Robert A.; deMartin, Brian J. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-08-09)New seismic refraction data reveal that hydrothermal circulation at the Trans-Atlantic Geotraverse (TAG) hydrothermal field on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at 26°10′N is not driven by energy extracted from shallow or mid-crustal ...
The impact of the North Atlantic Oscillation on the uptake and accumulation of anthropogenic CO2 by North Atlantic Ocean mode waters Levine, Naomi M.; Doney, Scott C.; Lima, Ivan D.; Wanninkhof, Rik; Bates, Nicholas R.; Feely, Richard A. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-09-21)The North Atlantic Ocean accounts for about 25% of the global oceanic anthropogenic carbon sink. This basin experiences significant interannual variability primarily driven by the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). A suite ...
