  • Cruise plans for R/V Chain cruise #43 : Indian Ocean expedition 

    Bunce, Elizabeth T. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1964-01)
    The proposed cruise of R/V CHAIN to the Indian Ocean will take place from February to June 1964. Following the Indian Ocean section of the cruise, R/V CHAIN will proceed to the Mediterranean Sea and will do further work ...
  • Design curves for oceanographic pressure-resistant housings 

    Sharp, Arnold G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-08)
    Curves have been prepared to serve as a guide in designing externally pressurized cylindrical and spherical housings and flat end closures. The plots show wall thickness-to-diameter ratio as a function of collapse depth ...
  • Handbook of oceanographic engineering materials : volume I - metals and alloys 

    Dexter, Stephen C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-12)
    This handbook is intended to serve as an aid in materials selection to Oceanographic engineers and designers. As such it is intentionally limited to materials that may be used advantageously in the marine environment.
  • Late Cenozoic geology of the Central Persian (Arabian) Gulf from industry well data and seismic profiles 

    Swift, Stephen A.; Uchupi, Elazar; Ross, David A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-04)
    Industry seismic reflection profiles shot in the 60's and early 70's in the central Persian (Arabian) Gulf are used to map two late Tertiary unconformities, and velocity data from a centrally located well is used to ...
  • The marine disposal of sewage sludge and dredge spoil in the waters of the New York Bight 

    Horne, Ralph A.; Mahler, A. J.; Rossello, R. C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-01-29)
    The dumping of sewer sludge and dredge spoil in the waters of the New York Bight and the effect of this waste disposal practice on the marine environment is reviewed. The. quantities and composition of these wastes is ...
  • SeisCORK meeting report 

    Stephen, Ralph A.; Pettigrew, Tom; Becker, Keir; Spiess, Fred N. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
    The purpose of this meeting was to explore design options to simultaneously acquire borehole seismic data and hydro-geological data (pressure, temperature, fluid sampling and microbiological sampling) on a single CORK ...
  • Tests of propellers for Alvin side propulsion units 

    Sharp, Arnold G.; Sullivan, James R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1967-07)
    Full scale dynamometer tests were run on a series of unshrouded propellers in the range of propeller diameters considered practical for use on the side propulsion units of the research submarine ALVIN. Measurements taken ...
  • Twenty-four (24) man-hour test of Alvin's environmental system 

    Learnard, H. H.; Marquet, William M.; McCamis, Marvin J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1964-11)
    ALVIN's specifications call for a 48 man-hour environmental system capability. To check this, a 24 man-hour test was run as follows: Two successive test periods of six (6) hours each with a two (2) man crew inside the ...
  • User's guide for FINDIF at SACLANTCEN 

    Stephen, Ralph A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-05)
    FINDIF solves the elastic wave equation for a line source in two dimensions by the finite difference method (Virieux,1986; Stephen,1988b). The solution is carried out in the time domain for either pulse or CW sources. ...
  • A user’s manual for finite difference synthetic seismogram codes on the CYBER 205 and CRAY XMP-12 

    Hunt, Mary M.; Stephen, Ralph A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-11)
    Over the past eight years, a software package has been developed to solve the elastic wave equation by the method of finite differences (Hunt et al., 1983; Stephen, 1983; Stephen, 1984a; Stephen, 1984b; Nicoletis, 1981). ...
