    • Fronts and frontogenesis in relation to vorticity 

      Petterssen, Sverre; Austin, James Murdoch (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1942-01)
      Soon after the discovery of the polar front, it was realized that fronts were subject to processes which either increased or diminished their intensity. Thus, fronts may form in fields where the distributiori of the ...
    • Frozen magma lenses below the oceanic crust 

      Nedimovic, Mladen R.; Carbotte, Suzanne M.; Harding, Alistair J.; Detrick, Robert S.; Canales, J. Pablo; Diebold, John B.; Kent, Graham M.; Tischer, Michael; Babcock, Jeffrey M. (2005-06-15)
      The Earth's oceanic crust crystallizes from magmatic systems generated at mid-ocean ridges. Whereas a single magma body residing within the mid-crust is thought to be responsible for the generation of the upper oceanic ...

      Fucile, Paul D.; Valdes, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-12)
      The EG&G Vector Measuring Current Meter (VMCM) used in mooring work provides a 20 ma Serial ASCII Instrumentation Loop (SAIL) communication system. A projected application of the VMCM is to have a surface mooring ...
    • Fukushima 137Cs at the base of planktonic food webs off Japan

      The potential bioaccumulation of 137Cs in marine food webs off Japan became a concern following the release of radioactive contaminants from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant into the coastal ocean. Previous ...
    • Fukushima and ocean radioactivity 

      Buesseler, Ken O. (The Oceanography Society, 2014-03)
      The triple disaster of the March 11, 2011, earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent radiation releases from Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant were unprecedented events for the ocean and society. In this article, ...
    • Fukushima-derived radionuclides in the ocean and biota off Japan 

      Buesseler, Ken O.; Jayne, Steven R.; Fisher, Nicholas S.; Rypina, Irina I.; Baumann, Hannes; Baumann, Zofia; Breier, Crystaline F.; Douglass, Elizabeth M.; George, Jennifer; Macdonald, Alison M.; Miyamoto, Hiroomi; Nishikawa, Jun; Pike, Steven M.; Yoshida, Sachiko (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-04-02)
    • Full text web indexes. 

      Brueggeman, Peter (IAMSLIC, 1997)
    • Functional anatomy of the Macrouridae (Teleostei, Gadiformes) 

      McLellan, Tracy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
      Osteology and myology of the head of 21 species of macrourids and two closely related species are described. A general model of the mechanics of the macrourid head during feeding has been developed based on the ...
    • Functional characterization and expression of molluscan detoxification enzymes and transporters involved in dietary allelochemical resistance 

      Whalen, Kristen E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
      Understanding how organisms deal with potentially toxic or fitness-reducing allelochemicals is important for understanding patterns of predation and herbivory in the marine environment. The ability of marine consumers ...
    • Functional connectivity of coral reef fishes in a tropical seascape assessed by compound-specific stable isotope analyses 

      McMahon, Kelton W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
      The ecological integrity of tropical habitats, including mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs, is coming under increasing pressure from human activities. Many coral reef fish species are thought to use mangroves and ...
    • Functional consequences of the asymmetric architecture of the ctenophore statocyst 

      Tamm, Sidney L. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2015-10-01)
      Ctenophores, or comb jellies, are geotactic with a statocyst that controls the activity of the eight ciliary comb rows. If a ctenophore is tilted or displaced from a position of vertical balance, it rights itself by ...
    • Functional genomics of a non-toxic Alexandrium lusitanicum culture 

      Martins, Claudia A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
      Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) is a human intoxication associated with the consumption of shellfish contaminated with a family of neurotoxins called saxitoxins. Many species in the dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium ...
    • Functional organization of hsp70 cluster in camel (Camelus dromedarius) and other mammals 

      Garbuz, David G.; Astakhova, Lubov N.; Zatsepina, Olga G.; Arkhipova, Irina R.; Nudler, Eugene; Evgenev, Michael B. (Public Library of Science, 2011-11-09)
      Heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) is a molecular chaperone providing tolerance to heat and other challenges at the cellular and organismal levels. We sequenced a genomic cluster containing three hsp70 family genes linked with ...
    • Functional overlap of microtubule assembly factors in chromatin-promoted spindle assembly 

      Groen, Aaron C.; Maresca, Thomas J.; Gatlin, Jesse C.; Salmon, Edward D.; Mitchison, Timothy J. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2009-04-15)
      Distinct pathways from centrosomes and chromatin are thought to contribute in parallel to microtubule nucleation and stabilization during animal cell mitotic spindle assembly, but their full mechanisms are not known. We ...
    • Functional significance of the taper of vertebrate cone photoreceptors 

      Harosi, Ferenc I.; Flamarique, Inigo Novales (Rockefeller University Press, 2012-01-16)
      Vertebrate photoreceptors are commonly distinguished based on the shape of their outer segments: those of cones taper, whereas the ones from rods do not. The functional advantages of cone taper, a common occurrence in ...
