  • Constraining the North Atlantic circulation with transient tracer observations 

    Li, Xingwen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-02)
    The capability of transient tracers to constrain the ocean circulation in the North Atlantic is explored. Study of an idealized tracer shows that inferences of circulation properties from transient state distributions ...
  • Dissolved inorganic and particulate iodine in the oceans 

    Wong, George T. F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-02)
    Analytical methods have been developed for the determination of iodate, iodide and particulate iodine in sea water. Iodate is converted to tri-iodide and the absorbance of tri-iodide at 353 nm is measured. The precision ...
  • Influence of protozoan grazing on the marine geochemistry of particle reactive trace metals 

    Barbeau, Katherine A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-05)
    Planktonic protozoan grazers have the potential to significantly affect the chemistry of particle-associated trace metals. This is due both to the importance of protists as consumers of bacterial-sized particles, and to ...
  • The marine geochemistry of trace metals 

    Boyle, Edward A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-04)
    The marine geochemical cycles of iron, copper, nickel, and cadmium were studied in order to provide a basis for oceanographic models for trace metals. Copper, nickel, and cadmium can be determined in a 100 ml seawater ...
  • Trace element geochemistry of marine biogenic particulate matter 

    Collier, Robert William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-11)
    Plankton samples have been carefully collected from a variety of marine environments under the rigorous conditions necessary to prevent contamination for major and trace-chemical analysis. Immediately after collection, ...
  • Transport of trace metals in nearshore sediments 

    Martin, William R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-04)
    The focus of this thesis is on rates of transport of metals both across the sediment/water interface and within the sediment column of nearshore sediments. The early diagenesis of several first-row transition metals exhibiting ...
