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.
Alvin titanium electrical penetrator design, manufacture, and testing : interim report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-05)
Under the U.S. Navy's Project TITANES a new titanium alloy pressure hull has been designed, built, and installed for use in the deep-submersible ALVIN. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution was assigned the task of ...
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 ...
Ambient noise analysis and finite difference modelling of VLF borehole seismic data
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-03)
This report describes a preliminary analysis of borehole seismic data to determine VLF/Sub-bottom Seismic Noise in the Atlantic and the preliminary results of finite difference modelling for a Cape Fear environment. Noise ...
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 ...
Design curves for oceanographic pressure-resistant housings
(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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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). ...
