  • May, Paul Wesley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-05)
    Concern with the impact of human activities on the coastal region of the world's oceans has elicited interest in the so-called "coastal boundary layer"-that band of water adjacent to the coast where ocean currents ...
  • Salles, Paulo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
    The importance of the persistence of multiple inlets in coastal systems is fundamental for issues such as water quality, navigability, and beach/barrier stability. In long embayments, having extended residence times, the ...
  • MacDonald, Daniel G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
    This thesis utilizes field data from the Fraser River Estuary, a highly stratified system located in southwestern British Columbia, Canada, to investigate the nature of mixing processes in a highly stratified environment, ...
  • Pavel, Vera L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-09)
    Estuarine density stratification may be controlled primarily by cross-shore processes (analogous to longitudinal control in narrow estuaries), or by both cross- and alongshore processes (typical of coastal plumes). Here ...
  • Rosenfeld, Leslie K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-12)
    The focus of this dissertation is on the description and dynamical interpretation of the tidal band current fluctuations over the continental shelf off northern California. The term "tidal band" is used here to denote ...
  • Signell, Richard P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-09)
    The dynamics of shallow tidal currents and tide-induced dispersion are investigated around coastal headlands that have alongshore length scales that are comparable to or less than the tidal excursion. Depth-averaged shallow ...
  • Wichers, Sacha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-02)
    Hydrothermal vents discharge superheated, mineral rich water into our oceans, thereby providing a habitat for exotic chemosynthetic biological communities. Hydrothermal fluids are convected upwards until they cool and ...
