  • September 2017's geoeffective space weather and impacts to Caribbean radio communications during Hurricane response 

    Redmon, Robert J.; Seaton, Daniel B.; Steenburgh, Robert; He, Jing; Rodriguez, Juan V. (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-09-03)
    Between 4 and 10 September 2017, multiple solar eruptions occurred from active region AR12673. NOAA's and NASA's well‐instrumented spacecraft observed the evolution of these geoeffective events from their solar origins, ...
  • Natural climate solutions for the United States 

    Fargione, Joseph E.; Bassett, Steven; Boucher, Timothy; Bridgham, Scott D.; Conant, Richard T.; Cook-Patton, Susan C.; Ellis, Peter W.; Falcucci, Alessandra; Fourqurean, James W.; Gopalakrishna, Trisha; Gu, Huan; Henderson, Benjamin; Hurteau, Matthew D.; Kroeger, Kevin D.; Kroeger, Timm; Lark, Tyler J.; Leavitt, Sara M.; Lomax, Guy; McDonald, Robert I.; Megonigal, J. Patrick; Miteva, Daniela A.; Richardson, Curtis J.; Sanderman, Jonathan; Shoch, David; Spawn, Seth A.; Veldman, Joseph W.; Williams, Christopher A.; Woodbury, Peter B.; Zganjar, Chris; Baranski, Marci; Elias, Patricia; Houghton, Richard A.; Landis, Emily; McGlynn, Emily; Schlesinger, William H.; Siikamaki, Juha V.; Sutton-Grier, Ariana E.; Griscom, Bronson W. (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018-11-14)
    Limiting climate warming to <2°C requires increased mitigation efforts, including land stewardship, whose potential in the United States is poorly understood. We quantified the potential of natural climate solutions (NCS)—21 ...
  • Geomorphic process fingerprints in submarine canyons 

    Brothers, Daniel S.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Andrews, Brian D.; Chaytor, Jason D.; Twichell, David C. (Elsevier, 2013-02-07)
    Submarine canyons are common features of continental margins worldwide. They are conduits that funnel vast quantities of sediment from the continents to the deep sea. Though it is known that submarine canyons form primarily ...
  • Seismic evidence for a slab tear at the Puerto Rico Trench 

    Meighan, Hallie E.; Pulliam, Jay; ten Brink, Uri S.; Lopez-Venegas, Alberto M. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-06-14)
    The fore‐arc region of the northeast Caribbean plate north of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands has been the site of numerous seismic swarms since at least 1976. A 6 month deployment of five ocean bottom seismographs ...
  • Slab tears and intermediate‐depth seismicity 

    Meighan, Hallie E.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Pulliam, Jay (American Geophysical Union, 2013-08-12)
    Active tectonic regions where plate boundaries transition from subduction to strike slip can take several forms, such as triple junctions, acute, and obtuse corners. Well‐documented slab tears that are associated with high ...
  • Effects of 2010 Hurricane Earl amidst geologic evidence for greater overwash at Anegada, British Virgin Islands 

    Atwater, Brian F.; Fuentes, Zamara; Halley, Robert B.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Tuttle, Maritia P. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2017-03-07)
    A post-hurricane survey of a Caribbean island affords comparisons with geologic evidence for greater overwash at the same place. This comparison, though of limited application to other places, helps calibrate coastal geology ...
  • Geologic controls on submarine slope failure along the central U.S. Atlantic margin : insights from the Currituck Slide Complex 

    Hill, Jenna C.; Brothers, Daniel S.; Craig, Bradley K.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Chaytor, Jason D.; Flores, Claudia H. (2016-10)
    Multiple styles of failure, ranging from densely spaced, mass transport driven canyons to the large, slab-type slope failure of the Currituck Slide, characterize adjacent sections of the central U.S. Atlantic margin that ...
  • Mesozooplankton sample data from R/V Pelican cruises PE03-NGOMEX, PE04-NGOMEX, PE06-NGOMEX, PE07-NGOMEX, PE09-05 in the Northern Gulf of Mexico from 2003-2008 

    Roman, Michael R.; Kimmel, David G.; Pierson, James J.; Huebert, Klaus B. (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: bco-dmo-data@whoi.edu, 2018-11-15)
    CTD casts using a high-capacity, diaphragm pump were conducted during the R/V Pelican cruises PE03-NGOMEX, PE04-NGOMEX, PE06-NGOMEX, PE07-NGOMEX, and PE09-05 in the Northern Gulf of Mexico between 2003 and 2008. Plankton ...
  • ScanFish Optical Plankton Counter (OPC) data from R/V Pelican cruises PE03-NGOMEX, PE04-NGOMEX, PE06-NGOMEX, PE07-NGOMEX, PE09-05, and PE11-06 in the Northern Gulf of Mexico between 2003 and 2010 

    Roman, Michael R.; Boicourt, William C.; Pierson, James J.; Huebert, Klaus B. (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: bco-dmo-data@whoi.edu, 2018-11-15)
    An optical plankton counter (OPC) and CTD mounted to a ScanFish platform were towed and undulated behind the R/V Pelican during cruises PE03-NGOMEX, PE04-NGOMEX, PE06-NGOMEX, PE07-NGOMEX, PE09-05, and PE11-06 in the Northern ...
  • Using surface waves recorded by a large mesh of three-element arrays to detect and locate disparate seismic sources 

    Fan, Wenyuan; de Groot-Hedlin, Catherine D.; Hedlin, Michael A. H.; Ma, Zhitu (Oxford University Press, 2018-07-28)
    Surface waves recorded by global arrays have proven useful for locating tectonic earthquakes and in detecting slip events depleted in high frequency, such as glacial quakes. We develop a novel method using an aggregation ...
