  • Lindstrom, Timothy E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
    A model is developed for the prediction of the seismo-acoustic noise spectrum in the microseism peak region (0.1 to 0.7 Hz). The model uses a theory developed by Cato [J. Acoust. Soc. Am., 89 , 1096-1112 (1991)] for an ...
  • Lohrenz, Steven E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-04)
    The biochemical and physiological bases underlying primary production of particulate protein amino acids were investigated in an effort to understand the relationship between algal protein metabolism and particulate organic ...
  • Crake, Kurtis W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06)
    An analytical method for precidicting the extent of damage in ship collisions is developed. The method calculates both the longitudinal and transverse extents of damage for the struck ship as a function of collision ...
  • Rawson, Charles E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06)
    Recent international and domestic regulatory actions have resulted in significant changes to oil tanker designs and intensified attention on predicting tanker environmental performance following groundings or collisions. ...
  • Mazloff, Matthew R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    A modern general circulation model of the Southern Ocean with one-sixth of a degree resolution is optimized to the observed ocean in a weighted least squares sense. Convergence toward the state estimate solution is carried ...
  • Schanze, Julian J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
    Large-scale thermal forcing and freshwater fluxes play an essential role in setting temperature and salinity in the ocean. A number of recent estimates of the global oceanic freshwater balance as well as the global oceanic ...
  • Murphy, Christopher A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-06)
    As analysis of imagery and environmental data plays a greater role in mission construction and execution, there is an increasing need for autonomous marine vehicles to transmit this data to the surface. Without access ...
  • Diemer, Ferdinand J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-08)
    Low frequency acoustic propagation in shallow water is examined from a normal mode context. By modelling the far field pressure field as a modal sum, propagating mode characteristics of wavenumber, initial phase, attennation ...
  • Koch, Stephen Patrick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979)
    An algorithm is proposed to numerically integrate the inhomogeneous depth-separated wave equation using a state variable technique. The solution obtained for two simple shallow water models is shown to agree well with ...
  • Woodford, Thomas J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
    The oceanographic community is moving towards unmanned autonomous vehicles to gather data and monitor scientific sites. The mission duration of these vehicles is dependent primarily on the power consumption of the ...
  • Klotz, Alan V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-08)
    Three cytochrome P-450 forms were highly purified (8-12 nmol/mg) from the hepatic microsomes of the untreated coastal marine fish Stenotomus chrysops (scup) by detergent solubilization and column chromatography. Scup ...
  • Webb, Helen F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-02)
    Pelagic sedimentation is the primary modifier of topography generated by ridge-associated volcanic and tectonic processes. This thesis represents an effort to understand the processes of, and the general distribution of, ...
  • Lyons, William J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-09)
    The challenges of directly observing active turbidity currents necessitates the consideration of preserved deposits for deciphering the behavior of these systems. In this thesis, I take advantage 3-D subsurface seismic ...
  • Wilson, Joshua David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-06)
    Hurricanes, powerful storms with wind speeds that can exceed 80 m/s, are one of the most destructive natural disasters known to man. While current satellite technology has made it possible to effectively detect and track ...
  • Carruthers, Emily A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-09)
    Coastal barriers are particularly susceptible to the predicted effects of accelerated of sea-level rise and the potential for increased impacts of intense storms. Over centennial scales, barriers are maintained via ...
  • Colin de Verdiere, Alain (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-08)
    Stimulated by new evidence from both "in situ" oceanic observations and results from numerical modelling, a laboratory study of quasigeostrophic flow and turbulence in a rotating homogeneous fluid has been undertaken. Two ...
  • Toomey, Michael R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2014-02)
    Here I use a simple numerical model of reef profile evolution to show that the presentday morphology of carbonate islands has developed largely in response to late Pleistocene sea level oscillations in addition to variable ...
  • Callahan, Sean M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-06)
    In the marine bacterium Vibrio fischeri two intercellular homoserine-Iactone signal molecules (luxI-dependent 30C6-HSL and the ainS-dependent C8-HSL) and the transcriptional activator LuxR regulate the luminescence system ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    This thesis addresses the question of how a highly energetic eddy field could be generated in the interior of the ocean away from the swift boundary currents. The energy radiation due to the temporal growth of non-trapped ...
  • Nikurashin, Maxim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)
    Observations and inverse models suggest that small-scale turbulent mixing is enhanced in the Southern Ocean in regions above rough topography. The enhancement extends 1 km above the topography suggesting that mixing is ...
