  • Mills, Susan W.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Tyler, Paul A. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2007-06)
    At deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the East Pacific Rise (9°50'N), distinct megafaunal assemblages are positioned along strong thermal and chemical gradients. We investigated the distribution of gastropod species to determine ...
  • Pratchett, Morgan S.; Berumen, Michael L.; Marnane, M. J.; Eagle, J. V.; Pratchett, D. J. (2007-10)
    Many coral reef fishes exhibit distinct ontogenetic shifts in habitat use while some species settle directly in adult habitats, but there is not any general explanation to account for these differences in settlement ...
  • Moeller, Holly V.; Neubert, Michael G. (Ecological Society of America, 2013-07)
    The biological benefits of marine reserves have garnered favor in the conservation community, but “no-take” reserve implementation is complicated by the economic interests of fishery stakeholders. There are now a number ...
  • Shimada, Koji; Itoh, Motoyo; Nishino, Shigeto; McLaughlin, Fiona A.; Carmack, Eddy; Proshutinsky, Andrey (American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-05)
    We examine the varieties and spatial distributions of Pacific and Eastern Arctic origin halocline waters in the Canada Basin using 2002–2003 hydrographic data. The halocline structure in the Canada Basin is different from ...
  • Pangallo, Kristin C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-09)
    Halogenated 1’-methyl-1,2’-bipyrroles (MBPs) are a distinctive class of marine organic compounds. They are naturally produced, they have a unique carbon structure, they are highly halogenated, and they bioaccumulate in ...
  • Teuten, Emma L.; Reddy, Christopher M. (2006-07-24)
    To provide additional evidence that several halogenated organic compounds (HOCs) found in environmental samples are natural and not industrially produced, we analyzed an archived whale oil sample collected in 1921 from the ...
  • Dexter, Stephen C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-12)
    This handbook is intended to serve as an aid in materials selection to Oceanographic engineers and designers. As such it is intentionally limited to materials that may be used advantageously in the marine environment.
  • Winget, Clifford L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-05)
    This report presents the design and construction details for various mechanical hand tools and accessories used by a manned deep submersible. The tools require the use of a mechanical manipulator, and were designed specifically ...
  • Scheltema, Amelie H.; Schander, Christoffer; Kocot, Kevin M. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2012-06-01)
    Phylogenetic relationships and identifications in the aplacophoran taxon Solenogastres (Neomeniomorpha) are in flux largely because descriptions of hard parts––sclerites, radulae, copulatory spicules––and body shape have ...
  • Anderson, Donald M.; Burkholder, JoAnn M.; Cochlan, William P.; Glibert, Patricia M.; Gobler, Christopher J.; Heil, Cynthia A.; Kudela, Raphael M.; Parsons, Michael L.; Rensel, J. E. Jack; Townsend, David W.; Trainer, Vera L.; Vargo, Gabriel A. (2008-07-28)
    Coastal waters of the United States (U.S.) are subject to many of the major harmful algal bloom (HAB) poisoning syndromes and impacts. These include paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), neurotoxic shellfish poisoning ...
  • Qian, Haohua; Alexander, Kenneth R.; Ripps, Harris (Elsevier B.V., 2010-10-23)
    Harmonic analysis was used to characterize the rabbit flicker ERG elicited by sinusoidally modulated full-field stimuli under light-adapted conditions. The frequency-response function for fundamental amplitude, derived ...
  • Watkins, William A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1968-03)
    The harmonic interval indicated during spectrographic analysis of a rapid train of pulses may be used to determine the pulse repetition-rate. If the pulse rate is regular, but too rapid to be separated, the repetition-rate ...
  • Anderson, Donald M.; Ramsdell, John S. (Oceanography Society, 2005-06)
    More than a decade ago, the U.S. approach to research on harmful algal blooms (HABs) was uncoordinated and modest in scale. Research groups were few and their work was piecemeal and constrained by small budgets that ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Yamato, Maya; Branstetter, Brian K. (2012-02)
    Sound is the primary sensory cue for most marine mammals, and this is especially true for cetaceans. To passively and actively acquire information about their environment, cetaceans have perhaps the most derived ears of ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Li, Songhai; Ketten, Darlene R.; Wang, Kexiong; Wang, Ding (Company of Biologists, 2013-10-18)
    How an animal receives sound may influence its use of sound. While ‘jaw hearing’ is well supported for odontocetes, work examining how sound is received across the head has been limited to a few representative species. The ...
  • Straneo, Fiamma (American Meteorological Society, 2006-04)
    The seasonal and interannual variations in the export of Labrador Sea Water (LSW), and in the heat and freshwater transport through the central Labrador Sea, are examined for two different periods: from 1964 to 1974, using ...
  • Lentz, Steven J.; Shearman, R. Kipp; Plueddemann, Albert J. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-07-29)
    Heat and salt balances over the New England shelf are examined using 10 month time series of currents, temperature, and salinity from a four element moored array and surface heat and freshwater fluxes from a meteorological ...
  • Jemsek, John P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-05)
    Heat flow, tectonic subsidence and crustal thickness distributions in the Ligurian Basin are best explained by asymmetric lithospheric thinning mechanisms. Over 150 heat flow measurements are made on several transects ...
  • Lucazeau, Francis; Bonneville, Alain; Escartin, Javier; von Herzen, Richard P.; Gouze, Philippe; Carton, Helene; Cannat, Mathilde; Vidal, Valerie; Adam, Claudia (American Geophysical Union, 2006-07-27)
    We report 157 closely spaced heat flow measurements along the Lucky Strike segment in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) for ages of the ocean floor between 0 and 11 Ma. On the eastern flank of a volcanic plateau delimiting ...
  • Williams, David Lee (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-07)
    Lithospheric cooling along the Galapagos Spreading Center at 86°W longitude, as determined by surface heat-flow measurements, appears dominated by hydrothermal circulation. This same phenomena apparently exists on the ...
