  • Donoghue, Terence; Ledwell, James R.; Doherty, Kenneth W. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-12)
    Conventional "spot" sampling of patchy distributions of oceanic constituents can lead to sampling errors. Interpretation of results based on data of disparate temporal or spatial resolution can be difficult or impossible. ...
  • Elgar, Steve; Raubenheimer, Britt (American Geophysical Union, 2008-04-12)
    Muddy seafloors cause tremendous dissipation of ocean waves. Here, observations and numerical simulations of waves propagating between 5- and 2-m water depths across the muddy Louisiana continental shelf are used to estimate ...
  • Apotsos, Alex; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-07-19)
    The effect of alongshore variations in the incident wavefield on wave-driven setup and on alongshore flows in the surfzone is investigated using observations collected onshore of a submarine canyon. Wave heights and radiation ...
  • Engelstad, Anita; Janssen, T. T.; Herbers, T. H. C.; van Vledder, Gerbrant; Elgar, Steve; Raubenheimer, Britt; Trainor, Lincoln; Garcia-Garcia, Ana (2012-10)
    Observations and third-generation wave model hindcasts of ocean surface gravity waves propagating across the Louisiana shelf show that the effects of the mud environment on wave evolution are complex and episodic. Whereas ...
  • Hsu, Tian-Jian; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T. (2006-04-06)
    The 25-m onshore migration of a nearshore sandbar observed over a 5-day period near Duck, NC is simulated with a simplified, computationally efficient, wave-resolving singlephase model. The modeled sediment transport is ...
  • Laible, Henry A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-09)
    The goal of this thesis is to be able to predict acoustic wave speeds in sea ice with known concentrations of inhomogeneities. To accomplish this, ice is modeled as a solid in which cylindrical fluid brine channels are ...
  • Ralston, David K.; Jiang, Houshuo; Farrar, J. Thomas (2013-05-30)
    An unstructured grid, phase-averaged wave model forced with winds from a high resolution atmospheric model is used to evaluate wind wave conditions in the Red Sea over an approximately 2-year period. The Red Sea lies in a ...
  • Udovydchenkov, Ilya A.; Brown, Michael G.; Duda, Timothy F.; Worcester, Peter F.; Dzieciuch, Matthew A.; Mercer, James A.; Andrew, Rex K.; Howe, Bruce M.; Colosi, John A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-10)
    The propagation of weakly dispersive modal pulses is investigated using data collected during the 2004 long-range ocean acoustic propagation experiment (LOAPEX). Weakly dispersive modal pulses are characterized by weak ...
  • Rack, Frank R.; Zook, Robert; Levy, Richard H.; Limeburner, Richard; Stewart, Craig; Williams, Michael J. M.; Luyendyk, Bruce; ANDRILL Coulman High Project Site Survey Team (The Oceanography Society, 2012-09)
    Extensive field operations were conducted on the northwestern Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica from November 2010 through January 2011. A significant amount of equipment, supplies, and people safely traversed from McMurdo ...
  • Catipovic, Josko A.; Freitag, Lee E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-07)
    This interim report covers the progress of the acoustic telemetry project during the period 12/1/88 to 5/15/89. In general, the work followed the format specified in WHOI proposal No. 5674.1. The major exception was the ...
  • Gobat, Jason I.; Grosenbaugh, Mark A.; Triantafyllou, Michael S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-11)
    This report presents a numerical framework for analyzing the statics and dynamics of cable strctures commonly encountered in oceanographic engineering practice. The numerical program, WHOI Cable, features a nonlinear ...
  • Gobat, Jason I.; Grosenbaugh, Mark A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
    This report describes version 2.0 of a numerical program for analyzing the statics and dynamics of cable structures commonly encountered in oceanographic engineering practice. The numerical program, WHOI Cable, features a ...
  • Jiang, Houshuo (2011-01-14)
    It has long been thought that jumping by the ciliate Mesodinium rubrum can enhance its nutrient uptake. However, jumping can be energetically costly and also dangerous by inducing hydrodynamic disturbances detectable to ...
  • Sharpe, Matthew M.; Graber, Hans C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-02)
    Wave power spectra from four waverider buoys on the New England Shelf and wind velocity records from three of those buoys and a fixed platform were analyzed. The data span the period from May 1987 through August 1988. ...
  • Irish, James D.; Lynch, James F.; Newhall, Arthur E.; Witzell, Nick; Traykovski, Peter A.; Glenn, Scott M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-12)
    The NOAA National Underseas Research Program at Rutgers University is establishing a Long-term Ecosystem Observatory off New Jersey in 15 meters of water. As part of a bottom boundary layer study at this site, WHOI deployed ...
  • Beron-Vera, F. J.; Brown, Michael G.; Olascoaga, M. J.; Rypina, Irina I.; Kocak, H.; Udovydchenkov, Ilya A. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-10)
    The connection between transport barriers and potential vorticity (PV) barriers in PV-conserving flows is investigated with a focus on zonal jets in planetary atmospheres. A perturbed PV staircase model is used to illustrate ...
  • Jiang, Houshuo; Farrar, J. Thomas; Beardsley, Robert C.; Chen, Ru; Chen, Changsheng (American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-10)
    Mesoscale atmospheric modeling over the Red Sea, validated by in-situ meteorological buoy data, identifies two types of coastal mountain gap wind jets that frequently blow across the longitudinal axis of the Red Sea: (1) ...
