    • Lava geochemistry as a probe into crustal formation at the East Pacific Rise 

      Perfit, Michael R.; Wanless, V. Dorsey; Ridley, W. Ian; Klein, Emily M.; Smith, Matthew C.; Goss, Adam R.; Hinds, Jillian S.; Kutza, Scott W.; Fornari, Daniel J. (The Oceanography Society, 2012-03)
      Basalt lavas comprise the greatest volume of volcanic rocks on Earth, and most of them erupt along the world's mid-ocean ridges (MORs). These MOR basalts (MORBs) are generally thought to be relatively homogeneous in ...
    • The layer of frictional influence in wind and ocean currents 

      Rossby, Carl-Gustaf; Montgomery, Raymond B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1935-04)
      The purpose of the present paper is to analyze, in a reasonably comprehensive fashion, the principal factors controlling the mean state of turbulence and hence the mean velocity distribution in wind and ocean currents ...
