Satellite observations of chlorophyll, phytoplankton biomass, and Ekman pumping in nonlinear mesoscale eddies
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-02)
Nonlinear mesoscale eddies can influence biogeochemical cycles in the upper ocean through vertical and horizontal advection of nutrients and marine organisms. The relative importance of these two processes depends on the ...
Stochastic mapping for chemical plume source localization with application to autonomous hydrothermal vent discovery
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
This thesis presents a stochastic mapping framework for autonomous robotic chemical plume source localization in environments with multiple sources. Potential applications for robotic chemical plume source localization ...
Acoustic and oceanographic observations and configuration information for the WHOI moorings from the SW06 experiment
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-05)
This document describes data, sensors, and other useful information pertaining to the moorings that were deployed from the R/V Knorr from July 24th to August 4th, 2006 in support of the SW06 experiment. The SW06 experiment ...
Vorticity measurements within the bottom boundary layer in the Strait of Juan De Fuca
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-07)
Electromagnetic fluctuations and turbulent vorticity fluctuations were measured over a nine month period in the strong tidal flows of the Strait of Juan De Fuca off the coast of the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. ...
Wind and wave climatology on the New England Shelf, May 1987-August 1988
(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. ...
Mortality of fish subjected to explosive shock as applied to oil well severance on Georges Bank
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-12)
A very extensive bibliography of papers on underwater explosions and their effects on marine life has been collected and summarized. When exposed to blast effects, vertebrates with swim bladders or lungs that contain ...
Intrinsic nonlinearity and spectral structure of internal tides at an idealized Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf break
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-12)
To quantify dynamical aspects of internal-tide generation at the Mid-Atlantic Bight shelf break, this study employs an idealized ocean model initialized by climatological summertime stratification and forced by monochromatic ...
Testing and evaluation of SURLYN foam and SPECTRA fiber ropes for buoy systems applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-08)
An autonomous instrument for time series analysis of TCO2 from oceanographic moorings
The design and testing of a robotic analyzer for autonomous TCO2 measurement from oceanographic moorings is described. The analyzer employs a conductimetric method of TCO2 measurement wherein CO2 from an acidified sample ...
Modeling and control of an autonomous underwater vehicle with combined foil/thruster actuators
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
The Sentry AUV represents a radical departure from conventional AUV design, particularly with respect to actuation. The vehicle's combined foil/thruster actuators have the potential to produce a vehicle both maneuverable ...
