      To mitigate the damages of natural hazards, policy responses can be beneficial only if they are effective. Using a self-administered survey approach, this paper focuses on the adherence to local fertilizer ordinances ...
    • Human-generated sound and marine mammals 

      Tyack, Peter L. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-11)
      Most species of large whales are endangered because for centuries whaling fleets have decimated their populations. In the late 1960s, marine-mammal biologists discovered that fishermen setting nets for tuna in the Pacific ...

      Few studies have addressed how chemosensation may be impaired by chemical alterations of the environment and anthropogenic disturbance. Humic acid (HA) is a pervasive, naturally occurring organic derivative found in aquatic ...
    • Humic substances may control dissolved iron distributions in the global ocean : implications from numerical simulations

      This study used an ocean general circulation model to simulate the marine iron cycle in an investigation of how simulated distributions of weak iron-binding ligands would be expected to control dissolved iron concentrations ...
    • Humpback whale populations share a core skin bacterial community : towards a health index for marine mammals? 

      Apprill, Amy; Robbins, Jooke; Eren, A. Murat; Pack, Adam A.; Reveillaud, Julie; Mattila, David K.; Moore, Michael J.; Niemeyer, Misty E.; Moore, Kathleen M. T.; Mincer, Tracy J. (Public Library of Science, 2014-03-26)
      Microbes are now well regarded for their important role in mammalian health. The microbiology of skin – a unique interface between the host and environment - is a major research focus in human health and skin disorders, ...
    • Hurricane impacts on the Caribbean coastal/marine environment : using scientific assessment to plan for the future 

      Aubrey, David G.; Giese, Graham S.; Burdick, D. M.; Agardy, M. T.; Haney, J. Christopher; Gable, F. J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
      The passage of Hurricane Hugo through the eastern Caribbean provided a unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study of (1) the effects of severe storms on tropical coastal and marine ecosystems, and (2) the physical and ...
    • Hurricane Katrina: Gunter Library's experience 

      Shaw, Joyce M. (IAMSLIC, 2008)
    • A hybrid particle–ensemble Kalman filter for Lagrangian data assimilation 

      Slivinski, Laura; Spiller, Elaine; Apte, Amit; Sandstede, Bjorn (American Meteorological Society, 2015-01)
      Lagrangian measurements from passive ocean instruments provide a useful source of data for estimating and forecasting the ocean’s state (velocity field, salinity field, etc.). However, trajectories from these instruments ...
    • Hybrid state estimators for the control of remotely operated underwater vehicles 

      Vaughn, Gregory M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-08)
      This paper explores the use of 'hybrid' state estimators to increase the accuracy and flexibility of acoustic position measurement systems used in the control of underwater vehicles. Two different approaches to extend ...
    • Hydrate morphology : physical properties of sands with patchy hydrate saturation 

      Dai, Sheng; Santamarina, J. Carlos; Waite, William F.; Kneafsey, Timothy J. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-11-14)
      The physical properties of gas hydrate-bearing sediments depend on the volume fraction and spatial distribution of the hydrate phase. The host sediment grain size and the state of effective stress determine the hydrate ...
    • Hydraulic adjustment to an obstacle in a rotating channel 

      Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Chassignet, Eric P. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-09-08)
      In order to gain insight into the hydraulics of rotating-channel flow, a set of initial-value problems analogous to Long's towing experiments is considered. Specifically, we calculate the adjustment caused by the introduction ...
    • Hydraulic control of a highly stratified estuarine front 

      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 ...
    • Hydraulic criticality of the exchange flow through the Strait of Gibraltar 

      Sannino, Gianmaria; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Carillo, Adriana (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
