  • Application of statistical learning theory to plankton image analysis 

    Hu, Qiao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-06)
    A fundamental problem in limnology and oceanography is the inability to quickly identify and map distributions of plankton. This thesis addresses the problem by applying statistical machine learning to video images ...
  • Mechanisms and variability of salt transport in partially-stratified estuaries 

    Bowen, Melissa M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    The variability of salt transport determines the variation of the length of the salinity intrusion and the large-scale density gradient in an estuary. This thesis contains three studies that address salt transport and ...
  • Population dynamics and diversity of Synechococcus on the New England Shelf 

    Hunter-Cevera, Kristen R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2014-09)
    Synechococcus is a ubiquitous marine primary producer. Our understanding of the factors that determine its abundance has been limited by available observational tools, which have not been able to resolve population ...
  • The vertical propagation of inertial waves in the ocean 

    Leaman, Kevin Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-06)
    A set of vertical profiles of horizontal ocean currents, obtained by electro-magnetic profilers in the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Bermuda in the spring of 1973, has been analyzed in order to study the vertical structure ...
