  • 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 hydrothermal alteration of oceanic basalts by seawater
