  • Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-06)
    Strandings of beaked whales of the genera Ziphius and Mesoplodon have been reported to occur in conjunction with naval sonar use. Detection of the sounds from these elusive whales could reduce the risk of exposure, but ...
  • Mourino-Carballido, Beatriz (2009-02)
    An analysis of nine years of data from the NW subtropical Atlantic reveals that variability in heterotrophic processes associated with (sub)mesoscale features has a major impact on the balance between photosynthesis and ...
  • Jaffee, Richard Jay (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
    The acoustic-internal wave interaction in an acoustic waveguide is investigated using wave techniques. Refractive index fluctuations due to the vertical displacements of the internal waves create an inhomogeneous ...
  • Feddersen, Falk; Trowbridge, John H. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-11)
    The effect of breaking-wave-generated turbulence on the mean circulation, turbulence, and bottom stress in the surf zone is poorly understood. A one-dimensional vertical coupled turbulence (k–ε) and mean-flow model is ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Geyer, W. Rockwell; Traykovski, Peter A.; Nidzieko, Nicholas J. (2012-01-25)
    Tidal flats at a river mouth feature estuarine and fluvial processes that distinguish them from tidal flats without river discharge. We combine field observations and a numerical model to investigate hydrodynamics and ...
  • Xu, Jinshan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
    This thesis covers a comprehensive analysis of long-range, deep-ocean, low-frequency, sound propagation experimental results obtained from the North Pacific Ocean. The statistics of acoustic fields after propagation ...
  • Apotsos, Alex; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T.; Smith, Jerry A. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-02-03)
    Setup, the increase in the mean water level associated with breaking waves, observed between the shoreline and about 6-m water depth on an ocean beach is predicted well by a model that includes the effects of wave rollers ...
  • Hsu, Tian-Jian; Hanes, Daniel M. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-05-25)
    A two-phase model is implemented to study the effects of wave shape on the transport of coarse-grained sediment in the sheet flow regime. The model is based on balance equations for the average mass, momentum, and fluctuation ...
  • Anderson, Jamie M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-02)
    The Autonomous Benthic Explorer (ABE) is an unmanned underwater vehicle being developed for scientific study of the deep ocean sea:floor. ABE will be completely autonomous from the surface which means that the lifetime ...
  • Pontbriand, Claire W.; Soule, Samuel A.; Sohn, Robert A.; Humphris, Susan E.; Kunz, Clayton G.; Singh, Hanumant; Nakamura, Ko-ichi; Jakobsson, Martin; Shank, Timothy M. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-10-06)
    We use high-definition seafloor digital imagery and multibeam bathymetric data acquired during the 2007 Arctic Gakkel Vents Expedition (AGAVE) to evaluate the volcanic characteristics of the 85°E segment of the ultraslow ...
  • Baba, Kiyoshi; Tarits, Pascal; Chave, Alan D.; Evans, Rob L.; Hirth, Greg; Mackie, Randall L. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-11-16)
    The electrical structure of the upper mantle beneath the East Pacific Rise (EPR) at 15°45′S is imaged by inverting seafloor magnetotelluric data obtained during the Mantle ELectromagnetic and Tomography (MELT) experiment. ...
  • Matsuno, Tetsuo; Evans, Rob L.; Seama, Nobukazu; Chave, Alan D. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-10-25)
    An electrical resistivity profile across the central Mariana subduction system shows high resistivity in the upper mantle beneath the back-arc spreading ridge where melt might be expected to exist. Although seismic data ...
  • Garcia, Xavier; Jones, Alan G. (National Research Council Canada, 2005-06-01)
    The North American Central Plains (NACP) anomaly in enhanced electric conductivity and its relationship with the Paleoproterozoic Trans-Hudson orogen (THO) has been studied under the auspices of Lithoprobe for over a decade. ...
  • Howland, Jonathan C.; Lerner, Steven A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-12-23)
    Since 1990, the Deep Submergence Laboratory and Deep Submergence Group of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have been collecting large quantities of digital imagery and creating digital photomosaics of the sea ...
  • Bowen, Martin F.; Bernard, P. J.; Gleason, D. E.; Whitcomb, Louis L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-01)
    Two classes of sample recovery devices have been fabricated for use with the Jason deep diving remotely operated vehicle (ROV). One class includes custom-built, autonomous vertical transporters (AVTs) that are capable of ...
  • Watts, Matthew Nicholas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    Mean maximum start-up accelerations and velocities achieved by the fast-start specialist, northern pike, are reported at 120 ms-2 and 4 ms-1, respectively (Harper and Blake, 1990). In this thesis, a simple mechanical system ...
  • Chiu, Linus Y. S.; Reeder, D. Benjamin; Chang, Yuan-Ying; Chen, Chi-Fang; Chiu, Ching-Sang; Lynch, James F. (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-03)
    Internal waves and bathymetric variation create time- and space-dependent alterations in the ocean acoustic waveguide, and cause subsequent coupling of acoustic energy between propagating normal modes. In this paper, the ...
  • Fries, Jerry Stephen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-02)
    Predictions of deposition rate are integral to the transport of many constituents including contaminants, organic matter, and larvae. Review of the literature demonstrates a general appreciation for the potential control ...
  • Singh, Hanumant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-05-25)
    This thesis examines the general task of active sensing by defining a measure of efficiency for sensing in a particular environment. We focus on fine-scale acoustic mapping from an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). ...
