  • MacDonald, Daniel G.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2005-03)
    Observations at the mouth of the Fraser River (British Columbia, Canada) indicate an abrupt frontal transition between unstratified river outflow and a highly stratified river plume with differences in salinity greater ...
  • Sannino, Gianmaria; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Carillo, Adriana (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    The hydraulic state of the exchange circulation through the Strait of Gibraltar is defined using a recently developed critical condition that accounts for cross-channel variations in layer thickness and velocity, applied ...
  • Ralph, Elise A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    The thesis addresses the applicability of traditional hydraulic theory to an unstable, mid-latitude jet where the only wave present is the Rossby wave modified by shear. While others (Armi 1989, Pratt 1989, Haynes et ...
  • Dziak, Robert P.; Bohnenstiehl, DelWayne R.; Smith, Deborah K. (The Oceanography Society, 2012-03)
    Mid-ocean ridge volcanism and extensional faulting are the fundamental processes that lead to the creation and rifting of oceanic crust, yet these events go largely undetected in the deep ocean. Currently, the only means ...
  • Curry, Ruth G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-03)
    This report documents the organization, functionality, and algorithms of a software package which operates as a database manager and toolset for climatological analysis of hydrographic station data. It details the methods ...
  • Aubrey, David G.; Oguz, T.; Demirev, E.; Ivanov, V.; McSherry, T. R.; Diaconu, V.; Nikolaenko, E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-02)
    An Intercalibration Workshop was held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (W.H.O.I.) from 1-10 December, 1991, for the CTD data acquired during HYDROBLACK '91. This intercalibration exercise was a prelude to an ...
  • Burns, Kathryn A.; Teal, John M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-11)
    The oil barge "Florida" ran aground just off Little Island, West Falmouth, Massachusetts on September 16, 1969. About 175,000 gallons of Number Two fuel oil leaked into Buzzards Bay and the adjacent Wild Harbor Marsh. ...
  • Geyer, W. Rockwell; Dragos, Paul (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-12)
    Thls report includes a compilation of hydrodynamic data obtained in New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts (Figue 1-1), for the purpose of providing baseline information for the selection of an outfall site for a seondary ...
  • Salles, Paulo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
    The importance of the persistence of multiple inlets in coastal systems is fundamental for issues such as water quality, navigability, and beach/barrier stability. In long embayments, having extended residence times, the ...
  • Coombs, Sheryl; Anderson, Erik J.; Braun, Christopher B.; Grosenbaugh, Mark A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2007-08)
    Mottled sculpin (Cottus bairdi) are small, benthic fish that avoid being swept downstream by orienting their bodies upstream and extending their large pectoral fins laterally to generate negative lift. Digital particle ...
  • Geiger, Sam R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    A finite difference computer model is developed to simulate the exposure statistics of a radio frequency buoyant antenna as it is towed in a three-dimensional random seaway. The model allows the user to prescribe antenna ...
  • Geist, Eric L.; Lynett, Patrick J.; Chaytor, Jason D. (Elsevier B.V., 2008-10-18)
    Tsunami generation from the Currituck landslide offshore North Carolina and propagation of waves toward the U.S. coastline are modeled based on recent geotechnical analysis of slide movement. A long and intermediate wave ...
  • Friedrichs, Carl T. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-02)
    In this thesis, mechanisms which control morphodynamics of shallow tidal embayments are investigated analytically. In the process of exploring these mechanisms (specifically asymmetries in bottom stress, τ), basis momentum ...
  • Jiang, Houshuo; Paffenhofer, Gustav-Adolf (Inter-Research, 2008-12-23)
    Spatio-temporal hydrodynamic signal fields were quantified for ambush-feeding Oithona plumifera females sensing motile Strobilidium ciliates. First, videotaped Oithona–ciliate encounters were image-analyzed to retrieve ...
  • Cook, Michael F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-09)
    This report is part of a research project conducted at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to improve the flight characteristics of CTD instrument packages. Improvement of these cable lowered instrument packages ...
  • Reeves, Eoghan P.; Seewald, Jeffrey S.; Sylva, Sean P. (2011-03-10)
    To investigate the extent of hydrogen isotope (2H and 1H) exchange between hydrocarbons and water under hydrothermal conditions, we performed experiments heating C1–C5 n-alkanes in aqueous solutions of varying initial 2H/1H ...
  • Tang, Janet Y. M.; Anderson, Donald M.; Au, Doris W. T. (2005-01-05)
    Chattonella marina, a harmful algal bloom (HAB) causative species, was used to study the mortality, physiology, and pathology of a marine stenohaline fish, goldlined seabream exposed to the toxic alga. The median lethal ...
  • Gagosian, Robert B.; Loder, Theodore; Nigrelli, Gale; Love, James (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-01)
    In March and April of 1981 a major cruise was undertaken on the R/V Atlantis II off the Peruvian coast near 15°S in order to investigate the sea-air exchange of selected heavy metals and natural and anthropogenic ...
  • Gagosian, Robert B.; Loder, Theodore; Nigrelli, Gale; Mlodzinska, Zofia; Love, James; Kogelschatz, Jane (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-01)
    In February and March of 1978 a major cruise was undertaken on the R/V KNORR off the Peruvian coast near 15°S in order to investigate the organic biogeochemical processes associated with upwelling areas. The purpose of ...
  • Benway, Heather M.; McManus, Jerry F.; Oppo, Delia W.; Cullen, James L. (2010-08)
    Millennial-scale climate fluctuations of the last deglaciation have been tied to abrupt changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC). A key to understanding mechanisms of MOC collapse and recovery is ...
