Participation by U. S. personnel on Cruise 39, Leg IV (June 17 - July 17, 1989) of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute's research vessel Akademik Vernadsky provided valuable information, documented in the present report for planning future cooperative projects with Soviet oceanographers. Detailed descriptions are given of the ship, its scientific laboratories, computers and onboard instrumentation. Planning and operating procedures are described and examples are given of daily work plans, seminars, menus and social activities. Personal accounts by the U. S. participants are also included. Many of the shipboard activities were recorded on VHS video cassettes. The oceanographic data collected in the Gulf Stream survey region during Leg IV are documented in the report. Copies of data sets were provided to the U. S. participants in exchange for U. S. data from the region during the survey period.

The ecology of colonial radiolarians : their colony morphology, trophic interactions and associations, behavior, distribution, and the photosynthesis of their symbionts Swanberg, Neil Ralph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-08)Colonial radiolarians (Spumellaria) are among the most common and abundant large zooplankton, but they have been little studied by modern biologists. Colonies were found on 98% of epipelagic diving stations in the period ...
A determination of air-sea gas exchange and upper ocean biological production from five noble gases and tritiugenic helium-3 Stanley, Rachel H. R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)The five noble gases (helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon) are biologically and chemically inert, making them ideal oceanographic tracers. Additionally, the noble gases have a wide range of solubilities and molecular ...
