Acoustic doppler current profiling in the Western Pacific during the WOCE P10 cruise, November/December 1993
MetadataShow full item record
Papua, New Guinea
The objective of this cruise was to occupy a hydrographic section nominally along 149E from Papua New Guinea to the shelf off the coast of Japan near Yokohama as part of the one-time WOCE Hydrographic Programe survey of the Pacific Ocean, line P10. This report describes the processing of shipboard acoustic Doppler current profier (ADCP) data that were collected during this cruise. New GPS-based heading measurements ("Ashtech heading"). which increase the accuracy of the ADCP, are covered in detail. A subset of the processed data from the New Guinea Coastal Undercurrent and from the Kuroshio is presented.

The ecology of colonial radiolarians : their colony morphology, trophic interactions and associations, behavior, distribution, and the photosynthesis of their symbionts Swanberg, Neil Ralph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-08)Colonial radiolarians (Spumellaria) are among the most common and abundant large zooplankton, but they have been little studied by modern biologists. Colonies were found on 98% of epipelagic diving stations in the period ...
A determination of air-sea gas exchange and upper ocean biological production from five noble gases and tritiugenic helium-3 Stanley, Rachel H. R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)The five noble gases (helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon) are biologically and chemically inert, making them ideal oceanographic tracers. Additionally, the noble gases have a wide range of solubilities and molecular ...
Elkins, Lynne J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)To explore the ability of melting mafic lithologies to produce alkaline ocean-island basalts (OIB), an experimental study was carried out measuring clinopyroxene (Cpx)- melt and garnet (Gt)-melt partition coefficients ...
