      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)
      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 ...
    • Hydraulics and instabilities of quasi-geostrophic zonal flows 

      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 ...
    • Hydro-bio-geomechanical properties of hydrate-bearing sediments from Nankai Trough 

      Santamarina, J. Carlos; Dai, Sheng; Terzariol, Marco; Jang, J.; Waite, William F.; Winters, William J.; Nagao, Jiro; Yoneda, Jun; Konno, Yoshihiro; Fujii, Tetsuya; Suzuki, K. (Elsevier, 2015-03-01)
      Natural hydrate-bearing sediments from the Nankai Trough, offshore Japan, were studied using the Pressure Core Characterization Tools (PCCTs) to obtain geomechanical, hydrological, electrical, and biological properties ...
    • Hydroacoustic monitoring of oceanic spreading centers : past, present, and future 

      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 ...
