  • Indoles induce metamorphosis in a broad diversity of jellyfish, but not in a crown jelly (Coronatae) 

    Helm, Rebecca R.; Dunn, Casey W. (Public Library of Science, 2017-12-27)
    Many animals go through one or more metamorphoses during their lives, however, the molecular underpinnings of metamorphosis across diverse species are not well understood. Medusozoa (Cnidaria) is a clade of animals with ...
  • Refining the formation and early evolution of the Eastern North American Margin : new insights from multiscale magnetic anomaly analyses 

    Greene, John A.; Tominaga, Masako; Miller, Nathaniel C.; Hutchinson, Deborah R.; Karl, Matthew R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-11-16)
    To investigate the oceanic lithosphere formation and early seafloor spreading history of the North Atlantic Ocean, we examine multiscale magnetic anomaly data from the Jurassic/Early Cretaceous age Eastern North American ...
  • Short communication : Massive erosion in monsoonal central India linked to late Holocene land cover degradation 

    Giosan, Liviu; Ponton, Camilo; Usman, Muhammed; Blusztajn, Jerzy S.; Fuller, Dorian Q.; Galy, Valier; Haghipour, Negar; Johnson, Joel E.; McIntyre, Cameron P.; Wacker, Lukas; Eglinton, Timothy I. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2017-12-01)
    Soil erosion plays a crucial role in transferring sediment and carbon from land to sea, yet little is known about the rhythm and rates of soil erosion prior to the most recent few centuries. Here we reconstruct a Holocene ...
  • Pan American Climate Studies (PACS) data report 

    Anderson, Steven P.; Huang, Kelan; Brink, Nancy J.; Baumgartner, Mark F.; Weller, Robert A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-03)
    The surface mooring component of the NOAA Pan American Climate Study (PACS) took place from April 1997 to September 1998 in the eastern tropical Pacific. PACS was a NOAA funded study with the goal of investigating links ...
  • WHOI silhouette DIGITIZER version 1.0 user’s guide 

    Little, William S.; Copley, Nancy J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-07)
    WHOI Silhouette DIGITIZER is a MATLAB-based computer program for measuring the lengths of marine organisms in the macrozooplankton size range. DIGITIZER displays a scanned photographic image of a seawater slurry containing ...
  • Elevators - autonomous transporters for deep sea benthic sample recovery 

    Bowen, Martin F.; Bernard, P. J.; Gleason, D. E.; Whitcomb, Louis L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-01)
    Two classes of sample recovery devices have been fabricated for use with the Jason deep diving remotely operated vehicle (ROV). One class includes custom-built, autonomous vertical transporters (AVTs) that are capable of ...
  • Subduction in the subtropical gyre : Seasoar cruises data report 

    Pallant, Julie S.; Bahr, Frank B.; Joyce, Terrence M.; Dean, Jerome P.; Luyten, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    The overall objective of the Subduction Accelerated Research Initiative (ARI) was to bring together several techniques to address the formation and evolution of newly formed water masses. The Seasoar component provided ...
  • Eddy interaction model for turbulent suspension in Reynolds-averaged Euler-Lagrange simulations of steady sheet flow 

    Cheng, Zhen; Chauchat, Julien; Hsu, Tian-Jian; Calantoni, Joseph (2017-10-31)
    A Reynolds-averaged Euler–Lagrange sediment transport model (CFDEM-EIM) was developed for steady sheet flow, where the inter-granular interactions were resolved and the flow turbulence was modeled with a low Reynolds number ...
  • An Eulerian two-phase model for steady sheet flow using large-eddy simulation methodology 

    Cheng, Zhen; Hsu, Tian-Jian; Chauchat, Julien (2017-11-08)
    A three-dimensional Eulerian two-phase flow model for sediment transport in sheet flow conditions is presented. To resolve turbulence and turbulence-sediment interactions, the large-eddy simulation approach is adopted. ...
  • Water and volatile element accretion to the inner planets 

    Sarafian, Adam (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2018-02)
    This thesis investigates the timing and source(s) of water and volatile elements to the inner solar system by studying the basaltic meteorites angrites and eucrites. In chapters 2 and 3, I present the results from angrite ...
