Shipboard ADCP profiles, central equatorial Pacific Ocean, 2003-2012
This data set contains 23 individual NetCDF files, each containing subsurface zonal and meridional velocity profiles (along with time/space coordinates) measured by shipboard ADCP.
Women in Oceanography : a web site for students, teachers, scientists, and the general public
(Oceanography Society, 2005-03)
In 1999 as the millennium was drawing to a close, we decided that the time was right to introduce a new type of web site highlighting the contributions that women are making to marine science. We envisioned a web site ...
Science under sail : ocean science education program combines traditional vessels with state-of-the-art technology
(Oceanography Society, 2004-09)
Sea Education Association (SEA), located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, offers introductory oceanographic instruction in the classroom and hands-on research training at sea to create a unique educational experience for ...
The Equatorial Undercurrent and TAO sampling bias from a decade at SEA
(American Meteorological Society, 2014-09)
The NOAA Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) moored array has, for three decades, been a valuable resource for monitoring and forecasting El Niño–Southern Oscillation and understanding physical oceanographic as well as coupled ...
The biogeography of the Plastisphere : implications for policy
(Ecological Society of America, 2015-12)
Microplastics (particles less than 5 mm) numerically dominate marine debris and occur from coastal waters to mid-ocean gyres, where surface circulation concentrates them. Given the prevalence of plastic marine debris (PMD) ...
Distribution of surface plastic debris in the eastern Pacific Ocean from an 11-Year data set
(American Chemical Society, 2014-04-07)
We present an extensive survey of floating plastic debris in the eastern North and South Pacific Oceans from more than 2500 plankton net tows conducted between 2001 and 2012. From these data we defined an accumulation zone ...
Gooseneck barnacles (Lepas spp.) ingest microplastic debris in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre
Substantial quantities of small plastic particles, termed “microplastic,” have been found in many areas of the world ocean, and have accumulated in particularly high densities on the surface of the subtropical gyres. While ...
Influence of Central Pacific oceanographic conditions on the potential vertical habitat of four tropical tuna species
(University of Hawai'i Press, 2015-10)
Climate change has resulted in the geographic and vertical expansion of oxygen minimum zones but their impact on the vertical distribution of commercially important species, such as tunas, is not well understood. Although ...
Record of seamount production and off-axis evolution in the western North Atlantic Ocean, 25°25′–27°10′N
(American Geophysical Union, 2000-02-10)
Using multibeam bathymetry, we identified 86 axial and 1290 off-axis seamounts (near-circular volcanoes with heights ≥70 m) in an area of 75,000 km2 on the western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR), 25°25′N to 27°10′N, ...
Segmentation and crustal structure of the western Mid-Atlantic Ridge flank, 25°25′–27°10′N and 0–29 m.y.
(American Geophysical Union, 1997-05-10)
We conducted a detailed geological-geophysical survey of the west flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between 25°25′N and 27°10′N and from the ridge axis out to 29 Ma crust, acquiring Hydrosweep multibeam bathymetry, HAWAII ...
