Gravity observations 09.0°E to 37.9°W along the equator
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents free air gravity values and computed free air anomalies obtained on an equatorial traverse from 09°00'E. to 37°56'W. It is the second of a series of reports presenting the gravity data to be used in deriving a "ground truth" calibration grid for comparison with topographical details of the world oceans obtained by a radar altimeter in an earth satellite scheduled to fly in 1974. A previous report (WHOI Technical Report #71-68) gave similar values taken on a traverse along the 150°W. meridian from 62.9°S. to 57.5° N.

Horizontal ducting of sound by curved nonlinear internal gravity waves in the continental shelf areas Lin, Ying-Tsong; McMahon, Kara G.; Lynch, James F.; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2013-01)The acoustic ducting effect by curved nonlinear gravity waves in shallow water is studied through idealized models in this paper. The internal wave ducts are three-dimensional, bounded vertically by the sea surface and ...
Acoustic mode radiation from the termination of a truncated nonlinear internal gravity wave duct in a shallow ocean area Lin, Ying-Tsong; Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.
