  • Upwind dynamic soaring of albatrosses and UAVs 

    Richardson, Philip L. (2014-05-21)
    Albatrosses have been observed to soar in an upwind direction using what is called here an upwind mode of dynamic soaring. The upwind mode is modeled using the dynamics of a two-layer Rayleigh cycle in which the lower layer ...

  • Dynamics of circular arrangements of vorticity in two dimensions 

    Vilasur Swaminathan, Rohith; Ravichandran, S.; Perlekar, Prasad; Govindarajan, Rama (2016-06)
    The merger of two like-signed vortices is a well-studied problem, but in a turbulent ow, we may often have more than two like-signed vortices interacting. We study the merger of three or more identical co-rotating ...
  • Inferring functional extinction based on sighting records 

    Jaric, Ivan; Gessner, Jörn; Solow, Andrew (2016-04)
    The term functional extinction is used to describe a permanent failure of reproduction or recruitment in a population. Functional extinction results in a truncation of the age distribution, but this can be very difficult ...
  • Extreme low oxygen and decreased pH conditions naturally occur within developing squid egg capsules 

    Long, Matthew H.; Mooney, T. Aran; Zakroff, Casey (2016-04)
    Young animals found future cohorts and populations but are often particularly susceptible to environmental changes. This raises concerns that future conditions, influenced by anthropogenic changes such as ocean acidification ...
  • Unusual butane- and pentanetriol-based tetraether lipids in Methanomassiliicoccus luminyensis, a representative of the seventh order of methanogens 

    Becker, Kevin W.; Elling, Felix J.; Yoshinaga, Marcos Y.; Sollinger, Andrea; Urich, Tim; Hinrichs, Kai-Uwe (2016-05)
    A new clade of archaea has recently been proposed to constitute the seventh methanogenic order, the Methanomassiliicoccales, which is related to the Thermoplasmatales and the uncultivated archaeal clades deep-sea hydrothermal ...
  • North Atlantic ocean circulation and abrupt climate change during the last glaciation 

    Henry, L. Gene; McManus, Jerry F.; Curry, William B.; Roberts, Natalie L.; Piotrowski, Alexander M.; Keigwin, LLoyd (2016-05-21)
    The most recent ice age was characterized by rapid and hemispherically asynchronous climate oscillations, whose origin remains unresolved. Variations in oceanic meridional heat transport may contribute to these repeated ...
  • Prevalence of influenza A virus in live-captured North Atlantic gray seals : a possible wild reservoir 

    Puryear, Wendy Blay; Keogh, Mandy; Hill, Nichola; Moxley, Jerry; Josephson, Elizabeth; Davis, Kimberly Ryan; Bandoro, Christopher; Lidgard, Damian; Bogomolni, Andrea L.; Levin, Milton; Lang, Shelley; Hammill, Michael; Bowen, Don; Johnston, David W.; Romano, Tracy; Waring, Gordon T.; Runstadler, Jonathan (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-08-03)
    Influenza A virus (IAV) has been associated with multiple unusual mortality events (UMEs) in North Atlantic pinnipeds, frequently attributed to spillover of virus from wild-bird reservoirs. To determine if endemic infection ...
