  • The dynamics of geometrically compliant mooring systems 

    Gobat, Jason I. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-06)
    Geometrically compliant mooring systems that change their shape to accommodate deformations are common in oceanographic and offshore energy production applications. Because of the inherent geometric nonlinearities, ...
  • Dynamics of global ocean heat transport variability 

    Jayne, Steven R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)
    A state-of-the-art, high-resolution ocean general circulation model is used to estimate the time-dependent global ocean heat transport and investigate its dynamics. The north-south heat transport is the prime manifestation ...
  • Dynamics of Langmuir circulation in oceanic surface layers 

    Gnanadesikan, Anand (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    This work investigates whether large-scale coherent vortex structures driven by wave-current interaction (Langmuir circulation) are responsible for maintaining the oceanic mixed layer. Langmuir circulations dominate the ...
  • Dynamics of marine zooplankton : social behavior ecological interactions, and physically-induced variability 

    Verdy, Ariane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-02)
    Marine ecosystems reflect the physical structure of their environment and the biological processes they carry out. This leads to spatial heterogeneity and temporal variability, some of which is imposed externally and ...
  • The dynamics of mean circulation on the continental shelf 

    Shaw, Ping-Tung Peter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-02)
    Mean long-isobath drift of the order 5 cm/sec has been observed on several continental shelves, e.g. in the Middle Atlantic Bight and in the Weddell Sea. A theoretical model is developed to explore the driving mechanism ...
  • Dynamics of myosin, microtubules, and Kinesin-6 at the cortex during cytokinesis in Drosophila S2 cells 

    Vale, Ronald D.; Spudich, James A.; Griffis, Eric R. (Rockefeller University Press, 2009-08)
    Signals from the mitotic spindle during anaphase specify the location of the actomyosin contractile ring during cytokinesis, but the detailed mechanism remains unresolved. Here, we have imaged the dynamics of green fluorescent ...
  • Dynamics of N removal over annual time periods in a suburban river network 

    Wollheim, Wilfred M.; Peterson, Bruce J.; Thomas, Suzanne M.; Hopkinson, Charles S.; Vorosmarty, Charles J. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-09-23)
    River systems are dynamic, highly connected water transfer networks that integrate a wide range of physical and biological processes. We used a river network nitrogen (N) removal model with daily temporal resolution to ...
  • Dynamics of nonlinear cross-equatorial flow in the deep ocean 

    Edwards, Christopher A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-12)
    The transformation of potential vorticity within and stability of nonlinear deep western boundary currents in an idealized tropical ocean are studied using a shallowwater model. Observational evidence indicates that the ...
  • The dynamics of oceanic transform faults : constraints from geophysical, geochemical, and geodynamical modeling 

    Gregg, Patricia M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    Segmentation and crustal accretion at oceanic transform fault systems are investigated through a combination of geophysical data analysis and geodynamical and geochemical modeling. Chapter 1 examines the effect of fault ...
  • Dynamics of particulate organic carbon flux in a global ocean model 

    Lima, Ivan D.; Lam, Phoebe J.; Doney, Scott C. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-02-27)
    The sinking of particulate organic carbon (POC) is a key component of the ocean carbon cycle and plays an important role in the global climate system. However, the processes controlling the fraction of primary production ...
  • Dynamics of steady ocean currents in the light of experimental fluid mechanics 

    Rossby, Carl-Gustaf (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1936-08)
    The present investigation may be regarded as a part of a systematic effort to introduce into meteorology and physical oceanography methods and results which for a number of years have contributed to the rapid growth and ...
  • Dynamics of the Antarctic circumpolar current : evidence for topographic effects from altimeter data and numerical model output 

    Gille, Sarah T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-02)
    Geosat altimeter data and numerical model output are used to examine the circulation and dynamics of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). The mean sea surface height across the ACC has been reconstructed from height ...
  • Dynamics of the equatorial undercurrent and its termination 

    Wacongne, Sophie H. C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-01)
    This study focuses on the zonal weakening, eastern termination and seasonal variations of the Atlantic equatorial undercurrent (EUC). The main and most original contribution of the dissertation is a detailed analysis ...
  • Dynamics of the outer planets : 1992 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics 

    Flierl, Glenn R.; Ingersoll, Andrew P.; Yano, Jun-Ichi; Ewing-DeRemer, Barbara (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992)
    The topic this summer was "The Dynamics of the Outer Planets." Andrew Ingersoll gave an excellent review of the current understanding of the strcture of the atmospheres of Jupiter, Neptune, Saturn, and Uranus. He presented ...
  • Dynamics of tongue microbial communities with single-nucleotide resolution using oligotyping 

    Mark Welch, Jessica L.; Utter, Daniel R.; Rossetti, Blair J.; Mark Welch, David B.; Eren, A. Murat; Borisy, Gary G. (Frontiers Media, 2014-11-07)
    The human mouth is an excellent system to study the dynamics of microbial communities and their interactions with their host. We employed oligotyping to analyze, with single-nucleotide resolution, oral microbial 16S ribosomal ...
  • The dynamics of unsteady strait and sill flow 

    Pratt, Lawrence J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-04)
