  • SeisCORK meeting report 

    Stephen, Ralph A.; Pettigrew, Tom; Becker, Keir; Spiess, Fred N. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
    The purpose of this meeting was to explore design options to simultaneously acquire borehole seismic data and hydro-geological data (pressure, temperature, fluid sampling and microbiological sampling) on a single CORK ...
  • Physical control of the distributions of a key Arctic copepod in the northeast Chukchi Sea 

    Elliott, Stephen M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2015-06)
    The copepod Calanus glacialis is one of the most important zooplankton taxa in the Arctic shelf seas where it serves as a key grazer, predator, and food source. Its summer distribution and abundance have direct effects ...
  • Seismic reflection, magnetic, and gravity profiles of the eastern Atlantic continental margin and adjacent deep-sea floor. II. Congo Canyon (Republic of Zaire) to Lisbon (Portugal) 

    Uchupi, Elazar; Emery, Kenneth O. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-04)
    One of the programs of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (I.D.O.E.) is a geological and geophysical study of the eastern Atlantic continental margin and adjacent deep-sea floor. This report is a compilation of ...
  • Determinants of injuries in passenger vessel accidents 

    Yip, Tsz Leung; Jin, Di; Talley, Wayne K. (2015-06)
    This paper investigates determinants of crew and passenger injuries in passenger vessel accidents. Crew and passenger injury equations are estimated for ferry, ocean cruise, and river cruise vessel accidents, utilizing ...
  • Rapid, high-resolution C-14 chronology of ooids 

    Beaupre, Steven R.; Roberts, Mark L.; Burton, Joshua R.; Summons, Roger E. (2015-03)
    Ooids are small, spherical to ellipsoidal grains composed of concentric layers of CaCO3 that could potentially serve as biogeochemical records of the environments in which they grew. Such records, however, must be placed ...
  • Destructive changes in the neuronal structure of the FVB/N mouse retina 

    Yang, Jinnan; Nan, ChangLong; Ripps, Harris; Shen, Wen (Public Library of Science, 2015-06-19)
    We applied a series of selective antibodies for labeling the various cell types in the mammalian retina. These were used to identify the progressive loss of neurons in the FVB/N mouse, a model of early onset retinal ...
  • Visual phototransduction components in cephalopod chromatophores suggest dermal photoreception 

    Kingston, Alexandra C. N.; Kuzirian, Alan M.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Cronin, Thomas W. (2015-04)
    Cephalopod molluscs are renowned for their colorful and dynamic body patterns, produced by an assemblage of skin components that interact with light. These may include iridophores, leucophores, chromatophores, and (in ...
  • Profiling molecular and behavioral circadian rhythms in the non-symbiotic sea anemone Nematostella vectensis 

    Oren, Matan; Tarrant, Ann M.; Alon, Shahar; Simon-Blecher, Noa; Elbaz, Idan; Appelbaum, Lior; Levy, Oren (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-06-17)
    Endogenous circadian clocks are poorly understood within early-diverging animal lineages. We have characterized circadian behavioral patterns and identified potential components of the circadian clock in the starlet sea ...
  • Acidification reduced growth rate but not swimming speed of larval sea urchins 

    Chan, Kit Yu Karen; Garcia, Eliseba; Dupont, Sam (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-05-15)
    Swimming behaviors of planktonic larvae impact dispersal and population dynamics of many benthic marine invertebrates. This key ecological function is modulated by larval development dynamics, biomechanics of the resulting ...
  • Life-cycle modification in open oceans accounts for genome variability in a cosmopolitan phytoplankton 

    von Dassow, Peter; John, Uwe; Ogata, Hiroyuki; Probert, Ian; Bendif, El Mahdi; Kege, Jessica U.; Audic, Stephane; Wincker, Patrick; Da Silva, Corinne; Claverie, Jean-Michel; Doney, Scott C.; Glover, David M.; Flores, Daniella Mella; Herrera, Yeritza; Lescot, Magali; Garet-Delmas, Marie-Jose; de Vargas, Colomban (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-12-02)
    Emiliania huxleyi is the most abundant calcifying plankton in modern oceans with substantial intraspecific genome variability and a biphasic life cycle involving sexual alternation between calcified 2N and flagellated 1N ...
