  • Geothermal processes at the Galapagos Spreading Center 

    Green, Kenneth Edward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
    The measurements of the heat flow field of the Galapagos Spreading Center in an area of about 570 km2 reveal the planform of the conductive flux and permit the first truly areal estimate of the near-axis heat flux for ...
  • The influence of geothermal sources on deep ocean temperature, salinity, and flow fields 

    Speer, Kevin G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-05)
    This thesis is a study of the effect of geothermal sources on the deep circulation, temperature and salinity fields. In Chapter 1 background material is given on the strength and distribution of geothermal heating. In ...
  • Mechanisms of heat transport through the floor of the equatorial Pacific Ocean 

    Crowe, John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-02)
    The equatorial Pacific heat flow low, a major oceanic geothermal anomaly centered on the equatorial sediment bulge, was investigated using deeply penetrating heat flow probes (6-11 meters penetration) within three ...
