Late Cenozoic geology of the Central Persian (Arabian) Gulf from industry well data and seismic profiles
(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 ...
A user’s manual for finite difference synthetic seismogram codes on the CYBER 205 and CRAY XMP-12
(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). ...
Tests of propellers for Alvin side propulsion units
(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 ...
The marine disposal of sewage sludge and dredge spoil in the waters of the New York Bight
(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 ...
User's guide for FINDIF at SACLANTCEN
(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. ...
Bathymetry and sediment thickness survey of the Hawaii-2 cable : cruise report for Kiwi expedition leg 2 on the R/V Roger Revelle
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997)
The primary purpose of this cruise was to identify at least two potential observatory sites along the Hawaii-2 cable that would be suitable for drilling a hole to basement. There is a funded program, the Hawaii-2 Observatory ...
Cruise plans for R/V Chain cruise #43 : Indian Ocean expedition
(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 ...
Twenty-four (24) man-hour test of Alvin's environmental system
(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 ...
Handbook of oceanographic engineering materials : volume I - metals and alloys
(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.
Bottom array specifications for the low frequency acoustic seismic experiment (LFASE)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-10)
The Low Frequency Acoustic Seismic Experiment (LFASE) was conducted to measure sound propagation and ambient noise above, at and below the sea floor. To this end an array consisting of four geophone nodes was introduced ...
