  • Cyclone-driven deep sea injection of freshwater and heat by hyperpycnal flow in the subtropics 

    Kao, Shuh-Ji; Dai, Minhan; Selvaraj, K.; Zhai, W.; Cai, Pinghe; Chen, Shih-Nan; Yang, J. Y. T.; Liu, J. T.; Liu, C. C.; Syvitski, James P. M. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-04)
    The western tropical Pacific gives birth to 23 tropical cyclones annually, bringing torrential rainfall to mountainous islands across Oceania resulting in a global sediment production hotspot, in which many rivers have ...
  • An improvement in the small-volume technique for determining thorium-234 in seawater 

    Cai, Pinghe; Dai, Minhan; Lv, Dongwei; Chen, Weifang (2005-06-09)
    The recently developed 2‐5 L small‐volume MnO2 coprecipitation method for determining 234Th in seawater has provided a new way to substantially increase, both temporally and spatially, the sampling resolution of 234Th ...
  • Intercalibration studies of short-lived thorium-234 in the water column and marine particles 

    Maiti, Kanchan; Buesseler, Ken O.; Pike, Steven M.; Benitez-Nelson, Claudia R.; Cai, Pinghe; Chen, Weifang; Cochran, Kirk; Dai, Minhan; Dehairs, Frank; Gasser, Beat; Kelly, Roger P.; Masque, Pere; Miller, Lisa A.; Miquel, Juan Carlos; Moran, S. Bradley; Morris, Paul J.; Peine, Florian; Planchon, Frederic; Renfro, Alisha A.; Rutgers van der Loeff, Michiel M.; Santschi, Peter H.; Turnewitsch, Robert; Waples, James T.; Xu, Chen (Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, 2012-09)
    Intercomparision of 234Th measurements in both water and particulate samples was carried out between 15 laboratories worldwide, as a part of GEOTRACES inter-calibration program. Particulate samples from four different ...
  • Particle fluxes associated with mesoscale eddies in the Sargasso Sea 

    Buesseler, Ken O.; Lamborg, Carl H.; Cai, Pinghe; Escoube, Raphaelle; Johnson, Rodney J.; Pike, Steven M.; Masque, Pere; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Verdeny, E. (2007-09-25)
    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 ...
