  • Beardsley, Robert C.; Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.; Irish, James D.; Ramp, Steven R.; Chiu, Ching-Sang; Tang, Tswen Yung; Yang, Yiing Jiang; Fang, Guohong (IEEE, 2004-10)
    A moored array deployed across the shelf break in the northeast South China Sea during April-May 2001 collected sufficient current and pressure data to allow estimation of the barotropic tidal currents and energy fluxes ...
  • He, Ruoying; Wilkin, John L. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-08-01)
    A high-resolution hybrid data assimilative (DA) modeling system is used to study barotropic tides and tidal dynamics on the southeast New England shelf. In situ observations include tidal harmonics of 5 major tidal ...
  • Headrick, Robert H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    Travel-times of acoustic signals were measured between a bottom-mounted source near Oahu and four bottom-mounted receivers located near Washington, Oregon, and California in 1988 and 1989. This paper discusses the observed ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Warner, John C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-10-17)
    Analyses of field observations and numerical model results have identified that sediment transport in the Hudson River estuary is laterally segregated between channel and shoals, features frontal trapping at multiple ...
  • Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2004-12-07)
    Beaked whales (Cetacea: Ziphiidea) of the genera Ziphius and Mesoplodon are so difficult to study that they are mostly known from strandings. How these elusive toothed whales use and react to sound is of concern because ...
  • Ball, Keenan R.; Buck, John R. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-03)
    In this Letter we describe a beamforming video recorder consisting of a video camera at the center of a 16 hydrophone array. A broadband frequency-domain beamforming algorithm is used to estimate the azimuth and elevation ...
  • Richards, Randall G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
    This paper develops a beam pattern design procedure for general multidimensional irregular sonar arrays that incorporates the not well understood effects of array geometry into the design process. The procedure is ...
  • Kemp, John N.; Newhall, Kris; Ostrom, William M.; Krishfield, Richard A.; Proshutinsky, Andrey (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-05)
    Situated beneath the Arctic perennial ice pack, the principal components of the Beaufort Gyre Observing System are three deep-ocean bottom-tethered moorings with CTD and velocity profilers, upward looking sonars for ice ...
  • Ward, Brian; Wanninkhof, Rik; McGillis, Wade R.; Jessup, Andrew T.; DeGrandpre, Michael D.; Hare, Jeffrey E.; Edson, James B. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-06-30)
    The difference in the fugacities of CO2 across the diffusive sublayer at the ocean surface is the driving force behind the air-sea flux of CO2. Bulk seawater fugacity is normally measured several meters below the surface, ...
  • Holden, James F.; Breier, John A.; Rogers, Karyn L.; Schulte, Mitchell D.; Toner, Brandy M. (The Oceanography Society, 2012-03)
    Hydrothermal vents are among the most biologically active regions of the deep ocean. However, our understanding of the limits of life in this extreme environment, the extent of biogeochemical transformation that occurs in ...
  • Li, Xingwen; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Durbin, Edward G.; Wiebe, Peter H. (2006-03-14)
    An adjoint data assimilation approach was used to quantify the physical and biological controls on Calanus finmarchicus N3 to C stages on Georges Bank and its nearby environs. The mean seasonal cycle of vertically-averaged ...
  • Shulman, I.; Kindle, J. C.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Moline, Mark A.; Haddock, Steven H. D.; Nechaev, D. A.; Phelps, M. W. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-08)
    The focus of this paper is on the development of methodology for short-term (1–3 days) oceanic bioluminescence (BL) predictions and the optimization of spatial and temporal bioluminescence sampling strategies. The approach ...
  • Licht, Stephen Carl (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    Inspired by the swimming abilities of marine animals, this thesis presents "Finnegan the RoboTurtle", an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) powered entirely by four flapping foils. Biomimetic actuation is shown to produce ...
  • Siegel, David A.; Peterson, P.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Maritorena, S.; Nelson, N. B. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-07-14)
    We investigate the bio-optical footprints made by mesoscale eddies in the Sargasso Sea and the processes that create them through an eddy-centric approach. Many (>10,000) eddies are identified and followed in time using ...
  • Stock, Charles A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-02)
    Blooms of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandriumfundyense are annually recurrent in the western Gulf of Maine (WGOM) and pose a serious economic and public health threat. Transitions between and vital rates within the life ...
  • Gross, Thomas F.; Williams, Albert J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-11)
    Two Benthic Acoustic Stress Sensor (BASS) equipped tripods were deployed in the Sediment Transport Events on Shelves and Slopes (STRESS) experiment in November, 1988, and recovered in March, 1989, on the California Shelf. ...
  • Udovydchenkov, Ilya A.; Stephen, Ralph A.; Duda, Timothy F.; Bolmer, S. Thompson; Worcester, Peter F.; Dzieciuch, Matthew A.; Mercer, James A.; Andrew, Rex K.; Howe, Bruce M. (Acoustical Society of America, 2012-10)
    Data collected during the 2004 Long-range Ocean Acoustic Propagation Experiment provide absolute intensities and travel times of acoustic pulses at ranges varying from 50 to 3200 km. In this paper a subset of these data ...
  • Churchill, James H.; Williams, Albert J.; Ralph, Elise A. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-10-30)
    Data from near-bottom instruments reveal that the mechanisms responsible for generating bottom stresses and resuspending sediment over the shelf and slope off of Lake Superior's Keweenaw peninsula exhibit distinct seasonal ...
  • Chave, Alan D.; Thomson, David J. (Blackwell Publishing, 2004-05-13)
    Robust magnetotelluric response function estimators are now in standard use in electromagnetic induction research. Properly devised and applied, these have the ability to reduce the influence of unusual data (outliers) in ...
