  • Paul, Walter (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-07)
    This report describes the design of tire cord reinforced rubber hoses, which have found an application as mooring hoses for oceanographic and offshore aquaculture buoy systems. These hoses stand out due to their ruggedness ...
  • Richardson, Philip L. (2010-08-26)
    Albatrosses fly long distances over the Southern Ocean, even around the world (almost) without flapping their wings, which has raised interest in how they perform such a feat. On a cruise to the South Atlantic I observed ...
  • Palter, Jaime B.; Lozier, M. Susan; Lavender, Kara L. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-05)
    Labrador Sea Water (LSW), a dense water mass formed by convection in the subpolar North Atlantic, is an important constituent of the meridional overturning circulation. Understanding how the water mass enters the deep ...
  • Marinov, Irina; Follows, Michael J.; Gnanadesikan, Anand; Sarmiento, Jorge L.; Slater, Richard D. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-07-22)
    This paper examines the sensitivity of atmospheric pCO2 to changes in ocean biology that result in drawdown of nutrients at the ocean surface. We show that the global inventory of preformed nutrients is the key determinant ...
  • Wåhlin, A. K.; Cenedese, Claudia (2005-11-03)
    The sensitivity of the basin-scale ocean stratification to the vertical distribution of plume entrainment is being analyzed. A large ocean basin supplied by dense water from an adjoining marginal sea is considered. The ...
  • Gebbie, Geoffrey A.; Huybers, Peter (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03-23)
    The ocean surface rapidly exchanges heat, freshwater, and gases with the atmosphere, but once water sinks into the ocean interior, the inherited properties of seawater are closely conserved. Previous water-mass decompositions ...
  • Liu, Q.; Dai, M.; Chen, W.; Huh, C.-A.; Wang, Guihua; Li, Q.; Charette, Matthew A. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012-05-22)
    In order to assess the role of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) and its impact on the carbonate system on the northern South China Sea (NSCS) shelf, we measured seawater concentrations of four radium isotopes ...
  • Watkins, James D.; Schaff, Terrence R.; Spinrad, Richard W. (Oceanography Society, 2009-06)
    On this tenth anniversary of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program, and as our nation embarks on a broad set of critical societal initiatives, it is valuable to review the accomplishments of the program, and ...
  • Moore, Michael J. (2013-12-30)
    Today there is enormous popular interest in marine mammals. Western media tend to dwell on the ongoing debate about commercial whaling by Japan, Norway and Iceland. There is, however, relative silence as to how the shipping ...
  • Montgomery, Ellyn T. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
    The High Resolution Profiler II (HRP-II), a unique, autonomous untethered, deep-ocean capable, profiling vehicle was designed and developed at WHOI during 2002-2003. During a vertical profile, it measures and records ...
  • Galvin, Lawrence F. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-08)
    Undersea technology is on the verge of equipping remotely operated vehicle (ROV) pilots with a three-dimensional (3-D), real-time display incorporating data from a wide variety of sensors including sonar (sound navigation ...
  • Tyack, Peter L. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-11)
    Most species of large whales are endangered because for centuries whaling fleets have decimated their populations. In the late 1960s, marine-mammal biologists discovered that fishermen setting nets for tuna in the Pacific ...
  • Misumi, Kazuhiro; Lindsay, Keith; Moore, J. Keith; Doney, Scott C.; Tsumune, Daisuke; Yoshida, Yoshikatsu (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-05-20)
    This study used an ocean general circulation model to simulate the marine iron cycle in an investigation of how simulated distributions of weak iron-binding ligands would be expected to control dissolved iron concentrations ...
  • Aubrey, David G.; Giese, Graham S.; Burdick, D. M.; Agardy, M. T.; Haney, J. Christopher; Gable, F. J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
    The passage of Hurricane Hugo through the eastern Caribbean provided a unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study of (1) the effects of severe storms on tropical coastal and marine ecosystems, and (2) the physical and ...
  • Vaughn, Gregory M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-08)
    This paper explores the use of 'hybrid' state estimators to increase the accuracy and flexibility of acoustic position measurement systems used in the control of underwater vehicles. Two different approaches to extend ...
  • Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Chassignet, Eric P. (Cambridge University Press, 2000-09-08)
    In order to gain insight into the hydraulics of rotating-channel flow, a set of initial-value problems analogous to Long's towing experiments is considered. Specifically, we calculate the adjustment caused by the introduction ...
  • MacDonald, Daniel G.; Geyer, W. Rockwell (American Meteorological Society, 2005-03)
    Observations at the mouth of the Fraser River (British Columbia, Canada) indicate an abrupt frontal transition between unstratified river outflow and a highly stratified river plume with differences in salinity greater ...
  • Sannino, Gianmaria; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Carillo, Adriana (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    The hydraulic state of the exchange circulation through the Strait of Gibraltar is defined using a recently developed critical condition that accounts for cross-channel variations in layer thickness and velocity, applied ...
  • Ralph, Elise A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)
    The thesis addresses the applicability of traditional hydraulic theory to an unstable, mid-latitude jet where the only wave present is the Rossby wave modified by shear. While others (Armi 1989, Pratt 1989, Haynes et ...
  • Dziak, Robert P.; Bohnenstiehl, DelWayne R.; Smith, Deborah K. (The Oceanography Society, 2012-03)
    Mid-ocean ridge volcanism and extensional faulting are the fundamental processes that lead to the creation and rifting of oceanic crust, yet these events go largely undetected in the deep ocean. Currently, the only means ...
