The minimum oxygen concentration in the western basin of the North Atlantic
Seiwell, Harry Richard

With the advance in knowledge of oceanic circulation there now exists a demand for additional identifying properties which will serve to trace the origin and movements of water masses in the sea, and to check earlier conclusions based entirely on temperature and salinity distribution. Of all the known identifying properties (except temperature and salinity) oxygen appears to be the most useful, not only because of the ease with which it can be accurately measured at sea, but also because of the large amount of data available on its distribution in the open ocean.

Amrhein, Daniel E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2014-02)Observations suggest that during the last deglaciation (roughly 20,000-10,000 years ago) the Earth warmed substantially, global sea level rose approximately 100 meters in response to melting ice sheets and glaciers, and ...
Application of the distribution of oxygen to the physical oceanography of the Caribbean sea region Seiwell, Harry Richard (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1938-09)Observational data for this discussion were obtained principally during the two cruises of the oceanographic research ship, "Atlantis," to the Caribbean Sea March 7 to May 5, 1933 (stations 1487-1610) and February 2 to ...
