Pendulum Program: During subject period Dr. Rose completed the rebuilding of the recording system for the pendulum so that visual records could be obtained with a standard oscillograph type camera. The first teat runs with this equipment showed that the accuracy of observataion was materially improved in that the period could be read with greater precision than was obtainable with the Berkeley counter direct read out system. A field run was made the last of October, which included observations at the following sites: Madison, Wisconsin Washington, D. C. Charleston, S. C. Key West, Florida Lamont Geological Observatory, N. Y. Otta, Canada Measurements were taken on a repeat basis on the return leg at each site and the reliability on the basis of a statistical analysis of the results was approximately 0.1 mgal.

Tectonics of the East Pacific rise : studies of faulting characteristics and magnetic and gravity anomalies Lee, Sang-Mook (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-02)The global mid-ocean ridge system is one of the most striking geological features on the surface of the Earth. In this system, the East Pacific Rise (EPR) is the fastest spreading ridge and is thus considered as the most ...
Three-dimensional acoustic propagation through shallow water internal, surface gravity and bottom sediment waves Shmelev, Alexey A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-09)This thesis describes the physics of fully three-dimensional low frequency acoustic interaction with internal waves, bottom sediment waves and surface swell waves that are often observed in shallow waters and on continental ...
