      The Oceanic Flux Program (OFP) sediment trap time series, the longest running time series of its kind, has continuously measured particle fluxes in the deep Sargasso Sea since 1978. OFP results provided the first direct ...
    • Particle flux in the Western Black Sea in the present and over the last 5,000 years : temporal variability, sources, transport mechanisms 

      Hay, Bernward J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-09)
      The particle flux in the present and over the last 5,000 years was investigated in the Black Sea in a comparative study with samples from time-series sediment traps and laminated core sediments. The sediment trap samples ...
    • Particle fluxes associated with mesoscale eddies in the Sargasso Sea

      We examined the impact of a cyclonic eddy and mode-water eddy on particle flux in the Sargasso Sea. The primary method used to quantify flux was based upon measurements of the natural radionuclide, 234Th, and these flux ...
    • Particle fluxes, Northeastern Nordic Seas, 1983-1986 

      Honjo, Susumu; Manganini, Steven J.; Karowe, Amy; Woodward, Bonnie L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-04)
      Seventy-nine particle. flux samples were collected from 1983 to 1986 using 7 automated time-series sediment traps at 6 stations distributed in the northern and eastern portion of the Nordic Seas as part of a German/U.S. ...
    • Particle fluxes, south central Black Sea : 1982-1985 

      Honjo, Susumu; Manganini, Steven J.; Asper, Vernon L.; Hay, Bernward J.; Karowe, Amy (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-05)
      Annual particle fluxes were measured by sediment traps deployed at a station about 40 km north of Amasra, Southern Black Sea, by an international team of oceanographers from Germany, Turkey, and the United States. This ...
    • Particle transport in horizontal convection : implications for the "Sandström theorem" 

      Marchal, Olivier (2006-04-25)
      The 'Sandström theorem' as interpreted by Jeffreys (1925) is that in a flow maintained by a temperature difference, the pathline from the cold region to the warm region must lie below the return path. A formal demonstration ...
    • Particulate matter sinking to the deep-sea floor at 2000 M in the Tongue of the Ocean, Bahamas, with a description of a new sedimentation trap 

      Wiebe, Peter H.; Boyd, Steven H.; Winget, Clifford L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
      A sedimentation trap for use just above the deep-sea floor was free-fallen to a depth of 2050 m in the Tongue of the Ocean canyon on January 3, 1974. On March 6, it was successfully recovered with the assistance of ...
    • Partitioning of sediment on the shelf offshore of the Columbia River littoral cell 

      Twichell, David C.; Cross, VeeAnn A.; Peterson, Curt D. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-02-11)
