  • Berg, Allison M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    This thesis explores the feasibility of making wind speed measurements from an oceanographic buoy using a Doppler sodar. In the fall of 2005, we deployed a Scintec SFAS sodar on an ASIS buoy. Roughly one week of buoy ...
  • Brown, Neil L.; Frye, Daniel E.; Proakis, John (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-01)
    The feasibility of using inductive coupling with existing submarine telephone cables for telemetry of data from ocean sensors was investigated. The submarine telephone cable was simulated with a computer model and the ...
  • Gorman, Geoffrey A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-09)
    The ocean depths provide an ever changing and complex imaging environment. As scientists and researches strive to document and study more remote and optically challenging areas, specifically scatter-limited environments. ...
  • Tarrell, Alvin E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-09)
    Saltwater marshes and wetlands are important buffers at the land-sea interface. Among the most biologically active ecosystems on Earth, natural and man-made wetlands are important interceptors of pollutants and nutrients ...
  • Link, Shmuel G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-06)
    Throughout this thesis we will discuss the theoretical background and empirical observation of a swell band shore normal flux divergence reversal. Specifically, we will demonstrate the existence and persistence of the ...
  • Noyes, T. James; Guza, R. T.; Elgar, Steve; Herbers, T. H. C. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-31)
    Alongshore propagating meanders of the mean alongshore current in the surf zone called shear waves have periods of a few minutes and wavelengths of a few hundred meters. Here shear wave properties are estimated with arrays ...
  • Ciriano, Yolanda; Coco, Giovanni; Bryan, K. R.; Elgar, Steve (American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-22)
    Fluid flows consistent with low-mode edge waves were evident in video observations of swash motions during a field experiment in which beach cusps developed on an initially smooth beach. As beach cusps grew, energy lying ...
  • 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. ...
  • Ferrini, Vicki L.; Singh, Hanumant (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-01)
    Recent advances in underwater robotics and imaging technology now enable the rapid acquisition of large datasets of near-bottom high-resolution digital imagery. These images provide the potential for developing a non-invasive ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1987-09)
    In situ measurements of fish target strength are selected for use in echo integrator surveys at 38 kHz. The results are expressed through equations in which the mean target strength TS is regressed on the mean fish length ...
  • Harris, Courtney K.; Traykovski, Peter A.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-30)
    A large flood of the Eel River, northern California, created a thick sediment deposit between water depths of 50 and 70 m in January 1997. The freshwater plume, however, confined sediment delivery to water depths shallower ...
  • Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.; Newhall, Arthur E.; Wu, Lixin; Chiu, Ching-Sang (IEEE, 2004-10)
    We present analyses of fluctuations seen in acoustic signals transmitted by two 400-Hz sources moored as part of the ASIAEX 2001 South China Sea (SCS) experiment. One source was near the bottom in 350-m deep water 31.3 km ...
  • Jiang, Houshuo; Kiørboe, Thomas (2010-11-04)
    Copepods swim either continuously by vibrating their feeding appendages or erratically by repeatedly beating their swimming legs resulting in a series of small jumps. The two swimming modes generate different hydrodynamic ...
  • Lucas, K.; Colin, Sean P.; Costello, John H.; Katija, Kakani; Klos, E. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2013-09-01)
    Unlike most medusae that forage with tentacles trailing behind their bells, several species forage upstream of their bells using aborally located tentacles. It has been hypothesized that these medusae forage as stealth ...
  • Fredericks, Janet J.; Trowbridge, John H.; Williams, Albert J.; Voulgaris, George; Shaw, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-08)
    To quantify and understand the role of vertical mixing processes in determining mid-shelf vertical structure of hydrographic and optical properties and particulate matter, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded a program ...
  • Fredericks, Janet J.; Trowbridge, John H.; Williams, Albert J.; Lentz, Steven J.; Butman, Bradford; Gross, Thomas F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-09)
    In studying the processes controlling particle distrbution of fine sediments over the continental shelf, the height, structure and dynamics of the bottom boundary layer must be better understood. The Sediment Transport ...
  • Zemmelink, Hendrik J.; Dacey, John W. H.; Hintsa, Eric J.; McGillis, Wade R.; Gieskes, Winfried W. C.; Klaassen, Wim; de Groot, Henk W.; Baar, Hein J. W. de (American Geophysical Union, 2004-06-30)
    Gas transfer rates were determined from vertical profile measurements of atmospheric dimethylsulfide (DMS) gradients over the equatorial Pacific Ocean obtained during the GasEx-2001 cruise. A quadratic relationship between ...
  • Hoyt, Joshua King (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-05)
    The Flying Fish is an autonomous, streamlined, gravity driven underwater vehicle of high speed (15 knots) vertical excursions to depths of 6000 meters. This prototype uses short baseline acoustic interferometry to guide ...
  • Li, Weichang; Loomis, Nicholas C.; Hu, Qiao; Davis, Cabell S. (2007-05-16)
    In this paper a rapid focus detection technique is developed for objects imaged using digital in-line holograms. It differs from previous approaches in that it is based directly on the spectral content of the object ...
  • Arranz, Patricia; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Madsen, Peter T.; Brito, Alberto; Bordes, Fernando; Johnson, Mark P. (Public Library of Science, 2011-12-07)
    Simultaneous high resolution sampling of predator behavior and habitat characteristics is often difficult to achieve despite its importance in understanding the foraging decisions and habitat use of predators. Here we tap ...
