  • Changes in deep-water CO2 concentrations over the last several decades determined from discrete pCO2measurements 

    Wanninkhof, Rik; Park, Geun-Ha; Takahashi, Taro; Feely, Richard A.; Bullister, John L.; Doney, Scott C. (Elsevier Ltd, 2013-02-09)
    Detection and attribution of hydrographic and biogeochemical changes in the deep ocean are challenging due to the small magnitude of their signals and to limitations in the accuracy of available data. However, there are ...
  • Incorporating information on bottlenose dolphin distribution into marine protected area design 

    Silva, Monica A.; Prieto, Rui; Magalhaes, Sara; Seabra, Maria I.; Machete, Miguel; Hammond, Philip S. (2011-10-12)
    The steady growth of the whale-watching activities in the Azores and its concentration in a small area that partly overlaps the home range of a resident group of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) was one of the ...
  • Mechanical energy input to the world oceans due to atmospheric loading 

    Wang, Wei; Qian, Chengchun; Huang, Rui Xin (2005-08-02)
    Mechanical energy input to the oceans is one of the most important factors controlling the oceanic general circulation. The atmosphere transports mechanical energy to the oceans primarily through wind stress, plus changes ...
  • Oceanography : its scope, problems, and economic importance 

    Bigelow, Henry Bryant (Houghton Mifflin Company, 1931)
    From the Foreward: This book is part of a report submitted to the National Academy of Sciences by its Committee on Oceanography appointed in accordance with the following resolution voted on April 27, 1927: 'That the ...
  • The seasonal variability of the Arctic Ocean Ekman transport and its role in the mixed layer heat and salt fluxes 

    Yang, Jiayan (American Meteorological Society, 2006-10-15)
    The oceanic Ekman transport and pumping are among the most important parameters in studying the ocean general circulation and its variability. Upwelling due to the Ekman transport divergence has been identified as a leading ...
  • Stratus Ocean Reference Station (20˚S, 85˚W), mooring recovery and deployment cruise R/V Ronald H. Brown cruise 05-05, September 26, 2005–October 21, 2005 

    Hutto, Lara; Weller, Robert A.; Lord, Jeffrey; Smith, Jason C.; Bouchard, Paul R.; Fairall, Christopher W.; Pezoa, Sergio; Bariteau, Ludovic; Lundquist, Jessica; Ghate, Virendra P.; Castro, Rodrigo; Cisternas, Carolina (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
    The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing, climate-quality records of surface meteorology, of air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
  • Towards a better understanding of microbial carbon flux in the sea 

    Gasol, Josep M.; Pinhassi, Jarone; Alonso-Saez, Laura; Ducklow, Hugh W.; Herndl, Gerhard J.; Koblizek, Michal; Labrenz, Matthias; Luo, Ya-Wei; Moran, Xose Anxelu G.; Reinthaler, Thomas; Simon, Meinhard (Inter-Research, 2008-09-18)
    We now have a relatively good idea of how bulk microbial processes shape the cycling of organic matter and nutrients in the sea. The advent of the molecular biology era in microbial ecology has resulted in advanced knowledge ...
  • Universal structure of mesoscale eddies in the ocean 

    Zhang, Zhengguang; Zhang, Yu; Wang, Wei; Huang, Rui Xin (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-30)
    Mesoscale eddies dominate oceanic kinetic energy at sub-inertial frequencies. Their three-dimensional structure has, however, remained obscure, hindering better understanding of eddy dynamics. Here by applying the composite ...
  • Vertical structure of dissipation in the nearshore 

    Feddersen, Falk; Trowbridge, John H.; Williams, Albert J. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-07)
    The vertical structure of the dissipation of turbulence kinetic energy was observed in the nearshore region (3.2-m mean water depth) with a tripod of three acoustic Doppler current meters off a sandy ocean beach. Surface ...
