  • Allen, Julie M.; Burns, D. R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-10)
    A three dimensional, second order finite difference method was used to create synthetic seismograms for elastic wave propagation in heterogeneous media. These synthetic seismograms are used to model rough seafloor, the ...
  • Stanton, Timothy K.; Chu, Dezhang (Acoustical Society of America, 2008-07)
    When calibrating a broadband active acoustic system with a single standard target such as a sphere, the inherent resonances associated with the scattering by the sphere pose a significant challenge. In this paper, a method ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G.; Francis, David T. I.; Atkins, Philip R. (Acoustical Society of America, 2007-03)
    The problem of calibrating parametric sonar systems at low difference frequencies used in backscattering applications is addressed. A particular parametric sonar is considered: the Simrad TOPAS PS18 Parametric Sub-bottom ...
  • Rapo, Mark A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)
    The lateral line system on fish has been found to aid in schooling behavior, courtship communication, active and passive hydrodynamic imaging, and prey detection. The most widely used artificial prey stimulus has been ...
  • Nadakuditi, Rajesh Rao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-02)
    One of the major problems in wireless communications is compensating for the time-varying intersymbol interference (ISI) due to multipath. Underwater acoustic communications is one such type of wireless communications ...
  • Armstrong, Roy A.; Singh, Hanumant; Torres, Juan; Nemeth, Richard S.; Can, Ali; Roman, Christopher N.; Eustice, Ryan M.; Riggs, Lauren; Garcia-Moliner, Graciela (2005-10-26)
    The benthic communities of the deep insular shelf at the Hind Bank Marine Conservation District (MCD), an important spawning grouper aggregation site, were studied with the Seabed autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) at ...
  • Ryerson, Thomas B.; Camilli, Richard; Kessler, John D.; Kujawinski, Elizabeth B.; Reddy, Christopher M.; Valentine, David L.; Atlas, Elliot; Blake, Donald R.; de Gouw, Joost; Meinardi, Simone; Parrish, David D.; Peischl, Jeff; Seewald, Jeffrey S.; Warneke, Carsten (2011-11-11)
    Detailed airborne, surface, and subsurface chemical measurements, primarily obtained in May and June 2010, are used to quantify initial hydrocarbon compositions along different transport pathways – in deep subsurface plumes, ...

    An important element of present oceanographic research is the assessment and quantification of uncertainty. These studies are challenging in the coastal ocean due to the wide variety of physical processes occurring on a ...
  • Jones, Benjamin A.; Stanton, Timothy K.; Lavery, Andone C.; Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2008-03)
    Blainville's beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) use broadband, ultrasonic echolocation signals with a −10 dB bandwidth from 26 to 51 kHz to search for, localize, and approach prey that generally consist of mid-water ...
  • Madsen, Peter T.; Wilson, M.; Johnson, Mark P.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Bocconcelli, Alessandro; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter L. (Inter-Research, 2007-11-27)
    Squid play an important role in biomass turnover in marine ecosystems and constitute a food source for ~90% of all echolocating toothed whale species. Nonetheless, it has been hypothesized that the soft bodies of squid ...
  • Levinton, Jeffrey; Doall, Michael; Ralston, David K.; Starke, Adam; Allam, Bassem (Public Library of Science, 2011-04-28)
    Oysters play important roles in estuarine ecosystems but have suffered recently due to overfishing, pollution, and habitat loss. A tradeoff between growth rate and disease prevalence as a function of salinity makes the ...
  • Zhang, Weifeng G.; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-10)
    A two-dimensional cross-shelf model of the New England continental shelf and slope is used to investigate the mean cross-shelf and vertical circulation at the shelf break and their seasonal variation. The model temperature ...
  • Linder, Christopher A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    Description of the shelfbreak front in the Middle Atlantic Bight is hampered by the extreme variability of the front. In order to gain more insight into the mean frontal structure and associated baroclinic jet, historical ...
  • Weisberg, Robert H.; He, Ruoying; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Muller-Karger, Frank; Walsh, John J. (Oceanography Society, 2004-06)
    Satellite-sensed ocean optical features are derived from a combination of factors, including the concentration of water properties by the ocean circulation and the modifications of these properties by biological and ...
  • Grant, William D. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-05)
    This report is a compilation of abstracts distrbuted at the Coastal Ocean Processes Symposium: A Tribute to Willam D. Grant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from September 27 - September 30, 1998.
  • He, Ruoying; Liu, Yonggang; Weisberg, Robert H. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-07-17)
    Atmosphere model-derived flux fields are used to force coastal ocean models. Coarse resolution and incomplete boundary layer dynamics limit the accuracy of these forcing fields and hence the performance of the ocean models. ...
  • Richardson, John M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-08)
    In this thesis, a new active sonar imaging concept is explored using the principle of code-division and the simultaneous transmission of multiple coded signals. The signals are sixteen symbol, four-bit, non-linear, block ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1996-01)
    Two scatterers at similar range give an echo which may appear to be due to a single scatterer. Methods for determining target strength that depend on resolving single scatterers may fail in this instance. Statistics ...
  • Aretxabaleta, Alfredo L.; Blanton, Brian O.; Seim, Harvey E.; Werner, Francisco E.; Nelson, James R.; Chassignet, Eric P. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-11)
    A set of model simulations are used to determine the principal forcing mechanisms that resulted in anomalously cold water in the South Atlantic Bight (SAB) in the summer of 2003. Updated mass field and elevation boundary ...

    The overall size of the “dead zone” within the main stem of the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries is quantified by the hypoxic volume (HV), the volume of water with dissolved oxygen (DO) less than 2 mg/L. To improve ...
