  • Instability and energetics in a baroclinic ocean 

    Kim, Kuh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-08)
    This thesis is made of two separate, but interrelated parts. In Part I the instability of a baroclinic Rossby wave in a two-layer ocean of inviscid fluid without topography, is investigated and its results are applied ...
  • Instability and finite-amplitude self-organization of large-scale coastline shapes 

    Murray, A. Brad; Ashton, Andrew D. (2012-12-21)
    Recent research addresses the formation of patterns on sandy coastlines on alongshore scales that are large compared with the cross-shore extent of active sediment transport. A simple morphodynamic instability arises from ...
  • Instability and freezing in a solidifying melt conduit 

    Holmes-Cerfon, Miranda C.; Whitehead, John A. (2010-10-23)
    Previous works have shown that when liquid flows in a pipe whose boundary temperature is below freezing, a tubular drainage conduit forms surrounded by solidified material that freezes shut under the appropriate combination ...
  • Instability of an idealized tidal mixing front : symmetric instabilities and frictional effects 

    Brink, Kenneth H.; Cherian, Deepak A. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2013-11-01)
    Finite amplitude instability of an idealized tidal mixing front is considered for cases where there is an active symmetric instability during the early stages of evolution. This can happen either when the initial front is ...

  • Intake flow fields for a zooplankton pump sampling system 

    Brooks, James Ray (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-08)
    The flow fields entering intake forms oriented into a steady flume flow has been observed and quantified. This data is applied to a model of zooplankton sampler performance, to predict the fraction of the sampled ...

Bronk; Reimer, Ron W.; Remmele, Sabine; Southon, John R.; Stuiver, Minze; Talamo, Sahra; Taylor, F. W.; van der Plicht, Johannes; Weyhenmeyer, Constanze E. (Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2004)
    A new calibration curve for the conversion of radiocarbon ages to calibrated (cal) ages has been constructed and internationally ratified to replace IntCal98, which extended from 0–24 cal kyr BP (Before Present, 0 cal BP ...
  • IntCal09 and Marine09 radiocarbon age calibration curves, 0–50,000 years cal BP 

    Reimer, Paula J.; Baillie, Mike G. L.; Bard, Edouard; Bayliss, Alex; Beck, J. Warren; Blackwell, Paul G.; Ramsey, C. Bronk; Buck, Caitlin E.; Burr, George S.; Edwards, R.

W.; Reimer, Ron W.; Richards, D. A.; Southon, John R.; Talamo, Sahra; Turney, C. S. M.; van der Plicht, Johannes; Weyhenmeyer, Constanze E. (Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2009-12)
    The IntCal04 and Marine04 radiocarbon calibration curves have been updated from 12 cal kBP (cal kBP is here defined as thousands of calibrated years before AD 1950), and extended to 50 cal kBP, utilizing newly available ...
  • An integrated assessment model for helping the United States sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) fishery plan ahead for ocean acidification and warming 

    Cooley, Sarah R.; Rheuban, Jennie E.; Hart, Deborah R.; Luu, Victoria; Glover, David M.; Hare, Jonathan A.; Doney, Scott C. (Public Library of Science, 2015-05-06)
    Ocean acidification, the progressive change in ocean chemistry caused by uptake of atmospheric CO2, is likely to affect some marine resources negatively, including shellfish. The Atlantic sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) ...
  • Integrated Fe- and S-isotope study of seafloor hydrothermal vents at East Pacific Rise 9–10°N 

    Rouxel, Olivier J.; Shanks, Wayne C.; Bach, Wolfgang; Edwards, Katrina J. (2008-03-06)

  • An integrated modal approach to surface and volume scattering in ocean acoustic waveguides 

    Tracey, Brian H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-01)
    Acoustic propagation in the ocean can be strongly affected by small random variations in ocean properties, including rough surfaces and volume fluctuations in the ocean or seabed. Such inhomogeneities scatter part of the ...
