  • The generation, energetics and propagation of internal tides in the western North Atlantic Ocean 

    Hendry, Ross MacRae (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-04)
    This thesis reports on an investigation into the structure, energetics and propagation of tidal frequency internal waves. Data from Site D, near the New England continental slope, Muir Seamount northeast of Bermuda, and ...
  • Observations of long period waves in the tropical oceans and atmosphere 

    Luther, Douglas S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
    The existence of resonant, baroclinic, equatorially-trapped inertia-gravity waves (discovered by Wunsch and Gill (1976)) is confirmed in the mid-Pacific by spectral analysis of long sea level records. The energy of the ...
  • Spatial and temporal variability of tide-induced salt flux in a partially mixed estuary 

    Engel, Patricia Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-09)
    Mechanisms for the tidal component of salt flux in the Hudson River estuary are investigated using a 3D numerical model. Variations with river discharge, fortnightly tidal forcing, and along channel variability are ...
  • Tomographic measurements of barotropic motions 

    Bushong, Paul J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-08)
    In 1983, continuous acoustic transmissions centered at 133 Hz and with a resolution of 60 ms were transmitted for five days from Oahu to the coast of Northern California (4000 km range). A maximum likelihood estimate of ...
