Long-baseline acoustic navigation for under-ice autonomous underwater vehicle operations
The recent Arctic GAkkel Vents Expedition (AGAVE) to the Arctic Ocean’s Gakkel Ridge (July/August 2007) aboard the Swedish ice-breaker I/B Oden employed autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) for water-column and ocean ...
Common humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) sound types for passive acoustic monitoring
(Acoustical Society of America, 2011-01)
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are one of several baleen whale species in the Northwest Atlantic that coexist with vessel traffic and anthropogenic noise. Passive acoustic monitoring strategies can be used in ...
Coastal ocean processes symposium : a tribute to William D. Grant, September 27 - September 30, 1998
(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.
A SAIL compatible three channel acoustic navigation interrogator
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
Ocean Acoustic Tomography data are significantly degraded if mooring motion is unknown. An autonomous instrument employing a solid state data logger designed to track and record mooring motion is described. Navigation ...
CTD electromechanical termination users manual
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-08)
This report desribes a new, easy to install, reliable electromechanical cable termination to mechanically attach and electrically connect cable lowered instrument packages to their lowering cable.
Detachment shear zone of the Atlantis Massif core complex, Mid-Atlantic Ridge, 30°N
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-21)
Near-bottom investigations of the cross section of the Atlantis Massif exposed in a major tectonic escarpment provide an unprecedented view of the internal structure of the footwall domain of this oceanic core complex. ...
Dynamic analysis of a launch and recovery system for a deep submersible
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-12)
An analysis of the motion of a docking platform for a deep submersible is presented. The problem is defined as a docking platform, or cradle, suspended beneath a surface vessel by elastic elements, composed of cable, ...
A dual sensor device to estimate fluid flow velocity at diffuse hydrothermal vents
Numerous attempts have been made over the last thirty years to estimate fluid flow rates at hydrothermal vents, either at the exit of black smoker chimneys or within diffuse flow areas. In this study, we combine two ...
Zonal jets as transport barriers in planetary atmospheres
(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 ...
Cyclone-driven deep sea injection of freshwater and heat by hyperpycnal flow in the subtropics
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-04)
The western tropical Pacific gives birth to 23 tropical cyclones annually, bringing torrential rainfall to mountainous islands across Oceania resulting in a global sediment production hotspot, in which many rivers have ...
