  • Link, Shmuel G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-06)
    Throughout this thesis we will discuss the theoretical background and empirical observation of a swell band shore normal flux divergence reversal. Specifically, we will demonstrate the existence and persistence of the ...
  • Draut, Amy E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-06)
    This thesis examines the evolution of a mud-dominated coastal sedimentary system on multiple time scales. Fine-grained systems exhibit different properties and behavior from sandy coasts, and have received relatively ...
  • Hendricks, Peter J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-01)
    Millimeter scale fluctuations in refractive index recorded with a freely sinking shadowgraph system are correlated with finestructure profiles of temperature, salinity and density and compared to models of ocean turbulence. ...
  • Young, Robert Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)
    Erosion processes involving fine-grained marine sediments were studied by using an in situ flume to erode undisturbed bottom sediments on the sea floor in Buzzards Bay, a shallow marine embayment off the Massachusetts coast. ...
  • Paola, Christopher (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-06)
    The first of two sets of data reported here, measured over two-dimensional immobile current ripples, comprises skin-friction time series at four streamwise positions and velocity profiles measured to within a few mm of ...
  • Thompson, LuAnne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-11)
    One and two layer models are used to study flow over axisymmetric isolated topography. Inviscid or nearly inviscid flow in which non-linear effects have order one importance is considered, and both the effects of β and ...
  • Little, Sarah A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-04-08)
    Several experiments are presented in this thesis which examine methods to measure and monitor fluid flow from hydrothermal vent fields. Simultaneous velocity, temperature, and conductivity data were collected in the ...
  • Gardner, Wilford D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-10)
    Sediment traps designed to yield quantitative data of particulate fluxes have been deployed and successfully recovered on four moorings in the deep sea. The traps were designed after extensive calibration of different ...
  • Hoyt, Joshua King (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-05)
    The Flying Fish is an autonomous, streamlined, gravity driven underwater vehicle of high speed (15 knots) vertical excursions to depths of 6000 meters. This prototype uses short baseline acoustic interferometry to guide ...
  • Sutherland, Kelly R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Trade-offs between filtration rate and swimming performance among several salp species with distinct morphologies and swimming styles were compared. Small-scale particle encounter at the salp filtering apparatus was also ...
  • Bowen, Stephen G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-09)
    The results of an experiment examining the forward propagation or an acoustic signal through a buoyant plume are discussed. Two distinct testing sights were used. One made use of a small fresh water tank in NUWC to provide ...
  • Kim, Hyun Joe (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-06)
    The Basin Acoustic Seamount Scattering Experiment (BASSEX) of 2004 was conducted to measure forward-scattering around the Kermit-Roosevelt Seamount Complex in the Northeast Pacific. The BASSEX experiment was focused on ...
  • McKenna, Sean P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    This thesis investigates the physical mechanisms of air-water gas transfer through direct measurements of turbulence at the air--water interface. To enable this study, a new approach to the particle image velocimetry ...
  • McLellan, Tracy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
    Osteology and myology of the head of 21 species of macrourids and two closely related species are described. A general model of the mechanics of the macrourid head during feeding has been developed based on the ...
  • Whalen, Kristen E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    Understanding how organisms deal with potentially toxic or fitness-reducing allelochemicals is important for understanding patterns of predation and herbivory in the marine environment. The ability of marine consumers ...
  • McMahon, Kelton W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
    The ecological integrity of tropical habitats, including mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs, is coming under increasing pressure from human activities. Many coral reef fish species are thought to use mangroves and ...
  • Martins, Claudia A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) is a human intoxication associated with the consumption of shellfish contaminated with a family of neurotoxins called saxitoxins. Many species in the dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium ...
  • Boissonneault, Katie Rose (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-09)
    Toxic algae are a growing concern in the marine environment. One unique marine diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, produces the the neurotoxin domoic acid, which is the cause of amnesic shellfish poisoning. ...
  • Beliakova, Natalia Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)
    This thesis studies the problems of generation and maintenance of recirculations by Gulf Stream instabilities. Observations show that the horizontal structure of the jet and its recirculations suffer significant changes ...
  • Hendry, Ross MacRae (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-04)
    This thesis reports on an investigation into the structure, energetics and propagation of tidal frequency internal waves. Data from Site D, near the New England continental slope, Muir Seamount northeast of Bermuda, and ...
