The minimum oxygen concentration in the western basin of the North Atlantic
Seiwell, Harry Richard
MetadataShow full item record
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.

Insight into chemical, biological, and physical processes in coastal waters from dissolved oxygen and inert gas tracers Manning, Cara C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2017-02)In this thesis, I use coastal measurements of dissolved O2 and inert gases to provide insight into the chemical, biological, and physical processes that impact the oceanic cycles of carbon and dissolved gases. Dissolved ...
Seiwell, Harry Richard (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1934-08)The distribution of dissolved oxygen in the sea is controlled by a combination of its physical, chemical and biological characteristics; on the one hand, the chemical and biological activities tend to vary the content ...
