    • Documenting the literature of oceanography 

      Fuseler-McDowell, Elizabeth (IAMSLIC, 1990)
    • Does a ballast effect occur in the surface ocean? 

      Sanders, Richard J.; Morris, Paul J.; Poulton, Alex J.; Stinchcombe, Mark C.; Charalampopoulou, Anastasia; Lucas, Mike I.; Thomalla, Sandy J. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-04-29)
      The oceanic biological carbon pump (BCP), a large (10 GT C yr−1) component of the global carbon cycle, is dominated by the sinking (export) of particulate organic carbon (POC) from surface waters. In the deep ocean, strong ...
    • Does elevated CO2 alter silica uptake in trees? 

      Fulweiler, Robinson W.; Maguire, Timothy J.; Carey, Joanna C.; Finzi, Adrien C. (Frontiers Media, 2015-01-13)
      Human activities have greatly altered global carbon (C) and Nitrogen (N) cycling. In fact, atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) have increased 40% over the last century and the amount of N cycling in the ...
    • Does fish larval dispersal differ between high and low latitudes? 

      Leis, Jeffrey M.; Caselle, Jennifer E.; Bradbury, Ian R.; Kristiansen, Trond; Llopiz, Joel K.; Miller, Michael J.; O'Connor, Mary I.; Paris, Claire B.; Shanks, Alan L.; Sogard, Susan M.; Swearer, Stephen E.; Treml, Eric A.; Vetter, Russell D.; Warner, Robert R. (2013-02)
      Several factors lead to expectations that the scale of larval dispersal and population connectivity of marine animals differs with latitude. We examine this expectation for demersal shorefishes, including relevant ...
    • Does history serve conservation? 

      Holt, Sidney (IAMSLIC, 2008)
    • Does the marine biosphere mix the ocean? 

      Dewar, William K.; Bingham, Rory J.; Iverson, R. L.; Nowacek, Douglas P.; St. Laurent, Louis C.; Wiebe, Peter H. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2006-07)
      Ocean mixing is thought to control the climatically important oceanic overturning circulation. Here we argue the marine biosphere, by a mechanism like the bioturbation occurring in marine sediments, mixes the oceans as ...
    • Domains of depleted mantle : new evidence from hafnium and neodymium isotopes 

      Salters, Vincent J. M.; Mallick, Soumen; Hart, Stanley R.; Langmuir, Charles H.; Stracke, Andreas (American Geophysical Union, 2011-08-02)
      Isotope systematics of basalts provide information on the distribution of mantle components and the length scale of mantle heterogeneity. To obtain this information, high data and sampling density are crucial. We present ...
    • Dominant run-length method for image classification 

      Tang, Xiaoou (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-06)
      In this paper, we develop a new run-length texture feature extraction algorithm that significantly improves image classification accuracy over traditional techniques. By directly using part or all of the run-length matrix ...
    • Double diffusion in oceanography : proceedings of a meeting September 26-29, 1989 

      Schmitt, Raymond W. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-07)
      A meeting to review research progress on double-diffusive phenomena in the ocean was held September 26-29, 1989, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Twenty-five oral presentations were made and a number of ...
    • A double-diffusive interface tank for dynamic-response studies 

      Schmitt, Raymond W.; Millard, Robert C.; Toole, John M.; Wellwood, W. David (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-01)
      A large tank capable of long-term maintenance of a sharp temperature-salinity interface has been developed and applied to measurements of the dynamical response of oceanographic sensors. A two-layer salt-stratified system ...
    • Double-diffusive processes : 1996 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics 

      Meacham, Stephen P.; Tucholke, Dacia (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-07)
      The physics of double diffusion and the role that it plays in the ocean provided the central theme for the 1996 summer program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Lectures and seminars ...
    • Downfront winds over buoyant coastal plumes 

      Spall, Michael A.; Thomas, Leif N. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-07)
      Downfront, or downwelling favorable, winds are commonly found over buoyant coastal plumes. It is known that these winds can result in mixing of the plume with the ambient water and that the winds influence the transport, ...
    • Downhole well log and core montages from the Mount Elbert Gas Hydrate Stratigraphic Test Well, Alaska North Slope 

      Collett, Timothy S.; Lewis, R. E.; Winters, William J.; Lee, Myung W.; Rose, Kelly K.; Boswell, Ray M. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-03-27)
      The BPXA-DOE-USGS Mount Elbert Gas Hydrate Stratigraphic Test Well was an integral part of an ongoing project to determine the future energy resource potential of gas hydrates on the Alaska North Slope. As part of this ...
    • The downside of resource sharing 

      Oxley, Anna (IAMSLIC, 1989)
    • Downward continued multichannel seismic refraction analysis of Atlantis Massif oceanic core complex, 30°N, Mid-Atlantic Ridge 

      Henig, A. S.; Blackman, Donna K.; Harding, Alistair J.; Canales, J. Pablo; Kent, Graham M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-19)
      Detailed seismic refraction results show striking lateral and vertical variability of velocity structure within the Atlantis Massif oceanic core complex (OCC), contrasting notably with its conjugate ridge flank. Multichannel ...
