  • Fox-Kemper, Baylor (American Meteorological Society, 2005-07)
    Multiple-gyre ocean models have a weaker mean subtropical circulation than single-gyre calculations with the same viscosity and subtropical forcing. Traditionally, this reduction in circulation is attributed to an intergyre ...
  • Maas, Amy E.; Blanco-Bercial, Leocadio; Lawson, Gareth L. (Public Library of Science, 2013-01-15)
    Thecosome pteropods (Mollusca, Gastropoda) are an ecologically important, diverse, and ubiquitous group of holoplanktonic animals that are the focus of intense research interest due to their external aragonite shell and ...

I.; Yoshimizu, K.; Wyse, E. (2006-07-11)
    A reference material designed for the determination of anthropogenic and natural radionuclides in sediment, IAEA-384 (Fangataufa Lagoon sediment), is described and the results of certification are presented. The material ...
  • Sikes, Elisabeth L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-06)
    A recently developed technique for determining past sea surface temperatures (SST), based on an analysis of the unsaturation ratio of long chain C37 methyl alkenones (Uk37) produced by Prymnesiophyceae phytoplankton, has ...
  • Hein, Christopher J.; FitzGerald, Duncan M.; Carruthers, Emily A.; Stone, Byron D.; Barnhardt, Walter A.; Gontz, Allen M. (2012-02-24)
    Details of the internal architecture and local geochronology of Plum Island, the longest barrier in the Gulf of Maine, has refined our understanding of barrier island formation in paraglacial settings. Ground-penetrating ...
  • Spall, Michael A.; Pedlosky, Joseph (American Meteorological Society, 2005-03)
    The interaction of equatorial Rossby waves with a western boundary perforated with one or more narrow gaps is investigated using a shallow-water numerical model and supporting theory. It is found that very little of the ...
  • Thomson, James M.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-04-07)
    Ocean surface gravity waves with periods between 20 and 200 s were observed to reflect from a steep-walled submarine canyon. Observations of pressure and velocity on each side of the canyon were decomposed into incident waves ...
  • Tindle, Chris T.; Deane, Grant B.; Preisig, James C. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009-01)
    A tank experiment has been conducted to measure reflection of underwater sound from surface waves. Reflection from a wave crest leads to focusing and caustics and results in rapid variation in the received waveform as the ...
  • Thomson, James M.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C.; Raubenheimer, Britt; Guza, R. T. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-10-10)
    The propagation of infragravity waves (ocean surface waves with periods from 20 to 200 s) over complex inner shelf (water depths from about 3 to 50 m) bathymetry is investigated with field observations from the southern ...
  • Henderson, Stephen M.; Guza, R. T.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C. (American Meteorological Society, 2006-04)
    Previous field observations indicate that the directional spread of swell-frequency (nominally 0.1 Hz) surface gravity waves increases during shoreward propagation across the surf zone. This directional broadening contrasts ...
  • Smith, Joel; Morgan, Jennifer R.; Zottoli, Steven J.; Smith, Peter J. S.; Buxbaum, Joseph D.; Bloom, Ona E. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2011-08)
    What gives an organism the ability to regrow tissues and to recover function where another organism fails is the central problem of regenerative biology. The challenge is to describe the mechanisms of regeneration at the ...
  • Auger, Helene; Sasakura, Yasunori; Joly, Jean-Stephane; Jeffery, William R. (2009-12-06)
    Ascidians have powerful capacities for regeneration but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Here we examine oral siphon regeneration in the solitary ascidian Ciona intestinalis. Following amputation, the ...
  • Harrison, John A.; Maranger, Roxane J.; Alexander, Richard B.; Giblin, Anne E.; Jacinthe, Pierre-Andre; Mayorga, Emilio; Seitzinger, Sybil P.; Sobota, Daniel J.; Wollheim, Wilfred M. (2008-06-25)
    Human activities have greatly increased the transport of biologically available N through watersheds to potentially sensitive coastal ecosystems. Lentic water bodies (lakes and reservoirs) have the potential to act as ...
  • Saenger, Casey P.; Came, Rosemarie E.; Oppo, Delia W.; Keigwin, Lloyd D.; Cohen, Anne L. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-04-21)
    Western subtropical North Atlantic oceanic and atmospheric circulations connect tropical and subpolar climates. Variations in these circulations can generate regional climate anomalies that are not reflected in Northern ...

M.; Cianca, Andrés; Santana, R.; Llinas, Octavio; Rueda, María José; Mourino-Carballido, Beatriz (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012-08-01)
    We used 5-yr concomitant data of tracer distribution from the BATS (Bermuda Time-series Study) and ESTOC (European Station for Time-Series in the Ocean, Canary Islands) sites to build a 1-D tracer model conservation including ...
  • Riskin, Shelby H.; Porder, Stephen; Schipanski, Meagan E.; Bennett, Elena M.; Neill, Christopher (University of California Press, 2013-01)
    Fertilizer-intensive agriculture has been integral to increasing food production over the past half century but has been accompanied by environmental costs. We use case studies of phosphorus fertilizer use in the world’s ...
  • Xu, X.; Chassignet, Eric P.; Price, James F.; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Peters, Hartmut (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-12)
    We have evaluated a regional-scale simulation of the Mediterranean outflow by comparison with field data obtained in the 1988 Gulf of Cádiz Expedition. Our ocean model is based upon the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) ...
  • Yang, Xi; Mustard, John F.; Tang, Jianwu; Hong, Xu (American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-14)
