Bioluminescence intensity modeling and sampling strategy optimization
(American Meteorological Society, 2005-08)
The focus of this paper is on the development of methodology for short-term (1–3 days) oceanic bioluminescence (BL) predictions and the optimization of spatial and temporal bioluminescence sampling strategies. The approach ...
Rotation identification in geometric algebra : theory and application to the navigation of underwater robots in the field
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-05-02)
We report the derivation and experimental evaluation of a stable adaptive identifier to estimate rigid body rotations using rotors in Geometric Algebra (GA). This work is motivated by the need for in situ estimation of the ...
Mesoscale eddies and Trichodesmium spp. distributions in the southwestern North Atlantic
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-06-08)
Correlations of Trichodesmium colony abundance with the eddy field emerged in two segments of Video Plankton Recorder observations made in the southwestern North Atlantic during fall 2010 and spring 2011. In fall 2010, ...
The Kallisti Limnes, carbon dioxide-accumulating subsea pools
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-07-16)
Natural CO2 releases from shallow marine hydrothermal vents are assumed to mix into the water column, and not accumulate into stratified seafloor pools. We present newly discovered shallow subsea pools located within the ...
Real-time environmental Arctic monitoring (R-TEAM) deployment cruise
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-12)
The R-TEAM mooring was deployed on August 24, 1988 at the coordinates of 79°25'.92N and 06°47'.91 E. This technical report describes the mooring as set and the deployment procedures.
Sea surface temperature patterns on the West Florida Shelf using growing hierarchical self-organizing maps
(American Meteorological Society, 2006-02)
Neural network analyses based on the self-organizing map (SOM) and the growing hierarchical self-organizing map (GHSOM) are used to examine patterns of the sea surface temperature (SST) variability on the West Florida Shelf ...
Isolating the hydrodynamic triggers of the dive response in eastern oyster larvae
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-05-06)
Understanding the behavior of larval invertebrates during planktonic and settlement phases remains an open and intriguing problem in larval ecology. Larvae modify their vertical swimming behavior in response to water column ...
(American Meteorological Society, 2015-02)
Model studies and observations in the Hudson River estuary indicate that frontogenesis occurs as a result of topographic forcing. Bottom fronts form just downstream of lateral constrictions, where the width of the estuary ...
A study of CTD cables and lowering systems
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-12)
This study first reviews both the electrical and mechanical modes and causes of failure of electromechanical (E/M) cables used to lower deep sea sensors, such as CTD instruments, from oceanographic ships. It then outlines ...
Hydrodynamics of CTD instrument packages
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-09)
This report is part of a research project conducted at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to improve the flight characteristics of CTD instrument packages. Improvement of these cable lowered instrument packages ...
