    Mopper, Kenneth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973-06)
    The goal of this thesis is to examine the distribution and diagenesis of carbohydrates in aquatic environments. The following questions are studied: what is the carbohydrate composition of sediment in different environments ...
  • The interaction of metal ions at the hydrous manganese dioxide-solution interface 

    Murray, James W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973-06)
    An experimental study of the interaction of metal ions with the surface of hydrous manganese dioxide has been completed. The results of these experiments have greatly improved our qualitative understanding of the adsorption ...
  • The characterization of humic substances in seawater 

    Stuermer, Daniel H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)
    Humic substances were isolated in gram quantities from seawater by a newly developed procedure of adsorption on a crosslinked polystyrene-divinylbenzene resin. The chemical and physical characteristics of both humic acid ...
  • Behavior of lobsters (Homarus americanus) in a semi-natural environment at ambient temperatures and under thermal stress 

    Stein, Lauren; Jacobson, Stewart; Atema, Jelle (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-10)
    In January, 1974 we established semi-natural habitats in two 10ft. diameter, octagonal aquaria, with five lobsters (Homarus americanus) each, and several Cancer irroratus, Anguilla rostrata, Pseudopleuronectes americanus and ...
  • Dissolved inorganic and particulate iodine in the oceans 

    Wong, George T. F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-02)
    Analytical methods have been developed for the determination of iodate, iodide and particulate iodine in sea water. Iodate is converted to tri-iodide and the absorbance of tri-iodide at 353 nm is measured. The precision ...
  • Applications of PB-210/RA-226 and PO-210/PB-210 disequilibria in the study of marine geochemical processes 

    Bacon, Michael P. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-02)
    The distribution of Pb-210 and Po-210 in dissolved (<O.4 micron) and particulate (>0.4 micron) phases has been measured at ten stations in the tropical and eastern North Atlantic and at two stations in the Pacific. Both ...
