Underwater sounds from ribbon seal, Phoca (Histriophoca) fasciata
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, 1977)
Intense downward frequency "sweeps" and broadband "puffing" sounds were recorded underwater in the presence of ribbon seal, Phoca (Histriophoca) fasciata Zimmerman 1783. The recordings were made in the waters off ...

Report B, general biological oceanographic data from the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-05)
Quantitative phytoplankton (31 samples) and zooplankton (23 samples) collections were made throughout the Persian Gulf and at several places in the Gulf of Oman in spring 1977. In addition, 34 neuston tows were made in ...
The tangential drag of an axially oscillating cylinder
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)
An experimental investigation of the tangentiaì drag of an axially oscillating cylinder is presented. Deep-sea mooring cables are oscillated sinusoidally at ocean wave amplitudes and frequencies, and experimenta1 values ...
Comparison of laboratory and in situ compressional-wave velocity measurements on sediment cores from the western North Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 1979-02-10)
Laboratory and in situ velocity measurements have been made on six piston cores taken in the western North Atlantic Ocean. Sediments from the southwestern Bermuda Rise and Greater Antilles Outer Ridge are clays having ...
Data file : New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-12)
The purpose of this data file, which has been modelled after Hathaway (1971), is to make available most of the basic data that was collected as part of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's study of New Bedford Harbor. ...
Fluxes, dynamics and chemistry of particulates in the ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-10)
Sediment traps designed to yield quantitative data of particulate fluxes have been deployed and successfully recovered on four moorings in the deep sea. The traps were designed after extensive calibration of different ...
Dissolved inorganic and particulate iodine in the oceans
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-02)
Analytical methods have been developed for the determination of iodate, iodide and particulate iodine in sea water. Iodate is converted to tri-iodide and the absorbance of tri-iodide at 353 nm is measured. The precision ...
The origin of the ninetyeast ridge and the northward motion of India, based on DSDP paleolatitudes
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-01)
This thes is is a collection of papers on the paleomagnetics of samples from several Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites in the Indian Ocean. These papers present the basic paleomagnetic data, discuss the statistical ...
Creep buckling of shells of revolution loaded under uniform external pressure
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-01)
A theoretical investigation is undertaken into the creep instability of two common shells of revolution, the infinitely long cylinder and the complete sphere. The linear and non-linear visco-elastic material idealizations ...
