Stability of a coastal upwelling front over topography
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-10)
A two-layer shallow water equation model is used to investigate the linear stability of a coastal upwelling front. The model features a surface front near a coastal boundary and bottom topography which is an arbitrary ...
Analysis of flow within the coastal boundary layer off Long Island, New York
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-04)
From 1974 through 1978 a series of intensive measurements were made in the coastal waters within 12 km of Long Island. The data were derived from two sources: a mooring array from which time series of temperature, ...
Bottom-mounted profiling winch
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-03)
A winch has been developed which can be free-dropped to the ocean bottom in full ocean depths. The winch is powered by self-contained batteries and can be programmed to cycle self-recording instruments from close to the ...
Interaction of high frequency internal waves and the boundary layer on the continental shelf
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-08)
Intermittent, shoreward propagating packets of high frequency first mode internal waves are common on the continental shelf when the water column is stratified and may induce large fluctuations in near bottom velocity. ...
Ecology of chemical defenses of algae against the herbivorous snail, Littorina littorea, in the New England rocky intertidal community
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
In the New England rocky intertidal community, space is dominated by two perennial plant types, brown fucoid algae (Ascophyllum nodosum and several species of Fucus) in the mid zones and the red alga Chondrus crispus ...
Where three oceans meet : the Algulhas retroflection region
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-09)
The highly energetic Agulhas Retroflection region south of the African continent lies at the junction of the South Indian, South Atlantic, and Circumpolar Oceans. A new survey of the Agulhas Retroflection taken in March ...

USNS Bartlett cruise 40-B data report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-06)
A joint cruise with Dr. Michael Gregg of the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington was conducted from 8-24 January, 1983, aboard the USNS Bartlett to study the effects of wintertime cooling in a ...
Computer storage and retrieval of position-dependent data : technical report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-06)
A data storage and retrieval scheme has been designed and implemented which provides cost effective and easy access to location-dependent, 'geophysical' data. The system is operational on a Digital Equipment Corporation ...
