  • Coco, Giovanni; Burnet, Tom K.; Werner, B. T.; Elgar, Steve (American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-10)
    Field measurements of morphology and swash flow during three episodes of beach cusp development indicate that tides modulate the height and cross-shore position of beach cusps. During rising tide, beach cusp height decreases ...
  • Liberatore, Stephen P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    Ocean Acoustic Tomography data are significantly degraded if mooring motion is unknown. An autonomous instrument employing a solid state data logger designed to track and record mooring motion is described. Navigation ...
  • Gaube, Peter; Chelton, D. B.; Strutton, P. G.; Behrenfeld, Michael J. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-02)
    Nonlinear mesoscale eddies can influence biogeochemical cycles in the upper ocean through vertical and horizontal advection of nutrients and marine organisms. The relative importance of these two processes depends on the ...
  • Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Ware, J. A.; McGillis, Wade R.; Hare, Jeffrey E. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-08-14)
    The most commonly used flux-profile relationships are based on Monin-Obukhov (MO) similarity theory. These flux-profile relationships are required in indirect methods such as the bulk aerodynamic, profile, and inertial ...
  • Bowers, Colleen Marie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    Recent studies have shown that the presence of sand ripples on the seabed improves sonar detection of buried mines at sub-critical angles. Sidescan sonar data of ripples on the west Florida shelf were collected as part ...
  • Burian, Erik A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-07-18)
    The continuing development of the autonomous underwater vehicle as an oceanographic research tool has opened up the realm of scientific possibility in the field of deep ocean research. The ability of a vehicle to travel ...
  • Anderson, Laurence A. (2009-04-22)
    The objective of this study was to fit a simple ecosystem model to climatological nitrogen cycle data in the Gulf of Maine, in order to calibrate the biological model for use in future 3-D modelling studies. First ...
  • Kanzow, Torsten; Flechtner, Frank; Chave, Alan D.; Schmidt, Roland; Schwintzer, Peter; Send, Uwe (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-02)
    The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) processing centers at the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ) and the University of Texas Center for Space Research (UTCSR) provide time series of monthly gravity field ...
  • Liu, Yonggang; Weisberg, Robert H.; He, Ruoying (American Meteorological Society, 2006-02)
    Neural network analyses based on the self-organizing map (SOM) and the growing hierarchical self-organizing map (GHSOM) are used to examine patterns of the sea surface temperature (SST) variability on the West Florida Shelf ...
  • Hintsa, Eric J.; Dacey, John W. H.; McGillis, Wade R.; Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Zemmelink, Hendrik J. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-30)
    We measured vertical profiles of dimethylsulfide (DMS) in the atmospheric marine boundary layer from R/P FLIP during the 2000 FAIRS cruise. Applying Monin-Obukhov similarity theory to the DMS gradients and simultaneous ...
  • Woodruff, Jonathan D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-09)
    This study uses geophysical and sedimentological data collected from the Lower Hudson River estuary to identify the depositional response of the estuary to high river discharge events. Erosional and depositional environments ...
  • Scully, Malcolm E.; Friedrichs, Carl T. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-07-28)
    Observations collected at two laterally adjacent locations are used to examine the processes driving sediment transport in the partially mixed York River Estuary. Estimates of sediment flux are decomposed into advective ...
  • Chen, Shih-Nan; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Sherwood, Christopher R.; Ralston, David K. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-10-16)
    A 3-D hydrodynamic model is used to investigate how different size classes of river-derived sediment are transported, exported and trapped on an idealized, river-dominated tidal flat. The model is composed of a river channel ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Warner, John C.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Wall, Gary R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-10-18)
    Tropical Storms Irene and Lee in 2011 produced intense precipitation and flooding in the U.S. Northeast, including the Hudson River watershed. Sediment input to the Hudson River was approximately 2.7 megaton, about 5 times ...
  • Roman, Christopher N. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)
    Obtaining accurate and repeatable navigation for robotic vehicles in the deep ocean is difficult and consequently a limiting factor when constructing vehicle-based bathymetric maps. This thesis presents a methodology to ...
  • Berteaux, Henri O.; Kery, Sean M.; Walden, Robert G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-01)
    As part of a development effort in the field of moored arrays sponsored by the Office of Naval Technology, the Ocean Structures and Moorings Laboratory (OSM&L), Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering Department (AOP&E), ...
  • Apotsos, Alex (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
    Surfzone wave height transformation and wave-breaking-driven increases in the mean sea level (setup) are examined on alongshore-uniform beaches with alongshore homogeneous and inhomogeneous wave forcing. While previously ...
  • Tang, Dajun; Moum, James N.; Lynch, James F.; Abbot, Philip A.; Chapman, Ross; Dahl, Peter H.; Duda, Timothy F.; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; Glenn, Scott M.; Goff, John A.; Graber, Hans C.; Kemp, John N.; Maffei, Andrew R.; Nash, Jonathan D.; Newhall, Arthur E. (Oceanography Society, 2007-12)
    Since the end of the Cold War, the US Navy has had an increasing interest in continental shelves and slopes as operational areas. To work in such areas requires a good understanding of ocean acoustics, coastal physical ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Stacey, Mark T. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2006-01)
    In intertidal regions with subtidal channels, effects of bathymetry on overlying flow vary greatly with tidal stage. Around low water when mudflats and marsh are exposed, flow is constrained to channels, but when water ...
  • Duda, Timothy F.; Guest, Brian J.; Wooding, Christine M.; Jones, Clayton M.; Lelievre, Scott; Webb, Douglas C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-01)
    Six drifting floats designed to measure shear were deployed in the vicinity of the Brazil Basin Tracer Release Experiment. The one-year long time series of oceanographic conditions obtained by the floats are for direct ...
