  • Dynamics of global ocean heat transport variability 

    Jayne, Steven R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)
    A state-of-the-art, high-resolution ocean general circulation model is used to estimate the time-dependent global ocean heat transport and investigate its dynamics. The north-south heat transport is the prime manifestation ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wintertime convection and frontal interleaving in the Southern Ocean 

    Toole, John M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-03)
    The Southern Ocean as defined here is the body of water between the Antarctic Continent and the Antarctic Polar Front, (APF). This ocean is considered important in the global thermodynamic balance of the ocean-atmosphere ...
