  • Decompression sickness (‘the bends’) in sea turtles 

    Garcia-Parraga, D.; Crespo-Picazo, J. L.; Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Cervera, V.; Marti-Bonmati, L.; Diaz-Delgado, J.; Arbelo, Manuel; Moore, Michael J.; Jepson, Paul D.; Fernandez, Antonio (Inter-Research, 2014-10-16)
    Decompression sickness (DCS), as clinically diagnosed by reversal of symptoms with recompression, has never been reported in aquatic breath-hold diving vertebrates despite the occurrence of tissue gas tensions sufficient ...
  • Decompression vs. decomposition : distribution, amount, and gas composition of bubbles in stranded marine mammals 

    Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Gonzaez-Diaz, Oscar; Arbelo, Manuel; Sierra, Eva; Sacchini, Simona; Fernandez, Antonio (Frontiers Media, 2012-06-04)
    Gas embolic lesions linked to military sonar have been described in stranded cetaceans including beaked whales. These descriptions suggest that gas bubbles in marine mammal tissues may be more common than previously thought. ...
  • Decoupling of genome size and sequence divergence in a symbiotic bacterium 

    Wernegreen, Jennifer J.; Ochman, Howard; Jones, Isaac B.; Moran, Nancy A. (American Society for Microbiology, 2000-07)
    In contrast to genome size variation in most bacterial taxa, the small genome size of Buchnera sp. was shown to be highly conserved across genetically diverse isolates (630 to 643 kb). This exceptional size conservation ...
  • Decreased influence of Antarctic intermediate water in the tropical Atlantic during North Atlantic cold events 

    Huang, Kuo-Fang; Oppo, Delia W.; Curry, William B. (Elsevier, 2014-01-15)
    Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) is a key player in the global ocean circulation, contributing to the upper limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), and influencing interhemispheric heat exchange ...
  • Decreased mass specific respiration under experimental warming is robust to the microbial biomass method employed 

    Bradford, Mark A.; Wallenstein, Matthew D.; Allison, Steven D.; Treseder, Kathleen K.; Frey, Serita D.; Watts, Brian W.; Davies, Christian A.; Maddox, Thomas R.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Mohan, Jacqueline E.; Reynolds, James F. (2009-05)
    Hartley et al. question whether reduction in Rmass, under experimental warming, arises because of the biomass method. We show the method they treat as independent yields the same result. We describe why the substrate-depletion ...

  • The deduction theorem and ecology 

    Hulburt, Edward M. (2008-04-11)
    The deduction theorem is based primarily on the formula [A superset of (B superset of C)] superset of [(A superset of B) superset of (A superset of C)]. The fisheries of Newfoundland, Iceland, and west Greenland have ...
  • Deep explosive volcanism on the Gakkel Ridge and seismological constraints on shallow recharge at TAG active mound 

    Pontbriand, Claire W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
    Seafloor digital imagery and bathymetric data are used to evaluate the volcanic characteristics of the 85°E segment of the ultraslow spreading Gakkel Ridge (9 mm yr-1). Imagery reveals that ridges and volcanic cones in ...
  • Deep ocean changes near the Western Boundary of the South Pacific Ocean 

    Sloyan, Bernadette M.; Wijffels, Susan E.; Tilbrook, Bronte; Katsumata, Katsuro; Murata, Akihiko; Macdonald, Alison M. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-10)
    Repeated occupations of two hydrographic sections in the southwest Pacific basin from the 1990s to 2000s track property changes of Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW). The largest property changes—warming, freshening, increase ...
  • Deep ocean circulation and transport where the East Pacific Rise at 9–10°N meets the Lamont seamount chain 

    Lavelle, J. William; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Ledwell, James R.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-12-31)
    We report the first 3-D numerical model study of abyssal ocean circulation and transport over the steep topography of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) and adjoining Lamont seamount chain in the eastern tropical Pacific. We begin ...
  • Deep ocean nutrients during the Last Glacial Maximum deduced from sponge silicon isotopic compositions 

    Hendry, Katharine R.; Georg, R. Bastian; Rickaby, Rosalind E. M.; Robinson, Laura F.; Halliday, Alex N. (2010-02)
    The relative importance of biological and physical processes within the Southern Ocean for the storage of carbon and atmospheric pCO2 on glacial-interglacial timescales remains uncertain. Understanding the impact of ...
  • A deep sea docking station for ODYSSEY class autonomous underwater vehicles 

    Bowen, Martin F.; Peters, Donald B. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06-10)
    Under subcontract to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Sea Grant Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN) program, engineers and researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) designed, ...
  • Deep sea moorings fishbite handbook 

    Berteaux, Henri O.; Prindle, Bryce (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-03)
    The purpose of this handbook is to bring awareness and a degree of expertise to the very real problem of fish attacks on mooring lines and cables deployed in the open seas. Over the years the authors have carefully ...
  • Deep seafloor arrivals : an unexplained set of arrivals in long-range ocean acoustic propagation 

    Stephen, Ralph A.; Bolmer, S. Thompson; Dzieciuch, Matthew A.; Worcester, Peter F.; Andrew, Rex K.; Buck, Linda J.; Mercer, James A.; Colosi, John A.; Howe, Bruce M. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009-08)
    Receptions, from a ship-suspended source (in the band 50–100 Hz) to an ocean bottom seismometer (about 5000 m depth) and the deepest element on a vertical hydrophone array (about 750 m above the seafloor) that were ...
