Factors correlated with incidence of fishbite on deep-sea mooring lines
MetadataShow full item record
Data from 399 moored stations established over the years 1967 through 1978 have been analyzed with reference to fishbite. Fishbite appears to have been a significant hazard as it was found in 22% of the lines placed within 40 degrees of the equator and where parts of the lines were at 2000 meters depth or less. Latitude, depth of water, and distance of mooring components beneath the surface were found to be correlated with incidence of fishbite; duration of a mooring was not.

A synthesis of deglacial deep‐sea radiocarbon records and their (in)consistency with modern ocean ventilation Zhao, Ning; Marchal, Olivier; Keigwin, Lloyd D.; Amrhein, Daniel E.; Gebbie, Geoffrey A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2018-01-08)We present a synthesis of 1,361 deep‐sea radiocarbon data spanning the past 40 kyr and computed (for 14C‐dated records) from the same calibration to atmospheric 14C. The most notable feature in our compilation is a long‐term ...
An investigation into the characteristics and sources of light emission at deep-sea hydrothermal vents White, Sheri N. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-06)A spectral camera (ALISS - Ambient Light Imaging and Spectral System) was used to image ambient light from high-temperature vents at 9°N East Pacific Rise and the Juan de Fuca Ridge during 1997 and 1998 Alvin dive cruises. ...
Assessment of flagellate diversity at deep-sea hydrothermal vents using the combined approach of culture-dependent and culture-independent methods Atkins, Michael S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-05)Eighteen strains of flagellated protists representing 9 species were isolated and cultured from four deep-sea hydrothermal vents in the Eastern Pacific Ocean: Juan de Fuca Ridge, Guaymas Basin, and both 21°N and 9°N on ...
