  • Hendricks, Peter J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-01)
    Millimeter scale fluctuations in refractive index recorded with a freely sinking shadowgraph system are correlated with finestructure profiles of temperature, salinity and density and compared to models of ocean turbulence. ...
  • Berteaux, Henri O.; Goldsmith, Roger A.; Schott, W. E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-02)
    The following report describes a computer solution to help predict the heave and roll response of free floating bodies of cylindrical shape when excited by random seas with known spectra. The basic concepts of harmonic ...
  • Leverette, Steven John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-07)
    In studying the earth with reflection seismics, one of the major unknowns is the velocity structure of the medium. Techniques used to determine the velocity structure commonly involve multi-channel arrays which measure ...
  • Theriault, Kenneth B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-08)
    Determnation of the structure of a medium from normal-incidence acoustic reflection data is a basic problem in fields as diverse as medical technology and the earth sciences; this research examines the accuracy with ...
  • Tochko, John Steven (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-02)
    The design and operation of a unique flow measuring instrument for bottom boundary layer studies in the marine environment is documented. The effectiveness of the instrument in acquiring data with which models of near ...
  • Rodenbusch, George (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-08)
    A linearized theory for the response of a circular pendulum spar in 2-dimensional waves and a uniform current is developed. The linear forces on the cylinder are predicted using an approximate potential flow theory for ...
  • Berteaux, Henri O.; Walden, Robert G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-12)
    The design of an oceanographic platform can be defined as the rational specification of the platform dimensions and geometry. This specification is usually the result of an iterative process which compares the ...
  • Koch, Stephen Patrick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979)
    An algorithm is proposed to numerically integrate the inhomogeneous depth-separated wave equation using a state variable technique. The solution obtained for two simple shallow water models is shown to agree well with ...
  • Greer, Matthew Noble (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-02)
    The development and application of an autonomous field instrumentation system consisting of four current meters and four wave gauges, along with a field monitor and digital recorder, is documented. The flow sensors are ...
  • Martinez, David Richard (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-06)
    For a spherical acoustic wave incident on a horizontally stratified ocean bottom, the reflected pressure field and the plane-wave reflection coefficient are related through a two-dimensional spatial-wavenumber Fourier ...
  • Berteaux, Henri O.; Walden, Robert G.; Moller, Donald A.; Agrawal, Yogesh C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-12)
    This study first reviews both the electrical and mechanical modes and causes of failure of electromechanical (E/M) cables used to lower deep sea sensors, such as CTD instruments, from oceanographic ships. It then outlines ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1980-02)
    A general model for averaging the acoustic target strength functions of fish is stated in calculable form. It accounts for the influences of the distribution of generally coupled spatial and orientation states of fish, ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1980-06)
    Previous determinations of the swimbladder contribution to the fish backscattering cross section have been hindered by ignorance of the acoustic boundary conditions at the swimbladder wall. The present study circumvents ...
  • Briggs, Michael Jeffrey (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-06)
    The multichannel Maximum Entropy Method (MEM) of spectral analysis is developed and applied in the dynamic analysis of offshore structures. Two different algorithms are implemented and compared with the conventional ...
  • Sharp, Arnold G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-08)
    Curves have been prepared to serve as a guide in designing externally pressurized cylindrical and spherical housings and flat end closures. The plots show wall thickness-to-diameter ratio as a function of collapse depth ...
  • Cook, Michael F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-09)
    This report is part of a research project conducted at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to improve the flight characteristics of CTD instrument packages. Improvement of these cable lowered instrument packages ...
  • Cook, Michael F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-01)
    A comparison between predicted and measured damping controlled dynamic response of an operational single pile platform (AMOCO's South Marsh Island Block 33B platform) is presented. In the predictive analysis, a finite ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1982-03)
    An operational definition of backscattering cross section is developed for the wideband reception of finite echoes. This is supported by relative measurements on a set of copper spheres by each of four echo sounders operating ...
  • Scheer, Edward K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-05)
    Seismic refraction experiments have been used extensively in the past thirty five years in investigations of the structure of the oceanic crust. The longer range of the refraction or wide angle reflection technique, on ...
  • Baxter, Lincoln; Hays, Earl E.; Hampson, George R.; Backus, Richard H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-12)
    A very extensive bibliography of papers on underwater explosions and their effects on marine life has been collected and summarized. When exposed to blast effects, vertebrates with swim bladders or lungs that contain ...
