  • Giosan, Liviu; Coolen, Marco J. L.; Kaplan, Jed O.; Constantinescu, Stefan; Filip, Florin; Filipova-Marinova, Mariana; Kettner, Albert J.; Thom, Nick (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-08-30)
    Over the last century humans have altered the export of fluvial materials leading to significant changes in morphology, chemistry, and biology of the coastal ocean. Here we present sedimentary, paleoenvironmental and ...
  • White, Meredith M.; McCorkle, Daniel C.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Cohen, Anne L. (Public Library of Science, 2013-04-15)
    Ocean acidification, characterized by elevated pCO2 and the associated decreases in seawater pH and calcium carbonate saturation state (Ω), has a variable impact on the growth and survival of marine invertebrates. Larval ...
  • Steph, Silke; Tiedemann, Ralf; Prange, Matthias; Groeneveld, Jeroen; Schulz, Michael; Timmermann, Axel; Nurnberg, Dirk; Ruhlemann, Carsten; Saukel, Cornelia; Haug, Gerald H. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-04-15)
    Unraveling the processes responsible for Earth's climate transition from an “El Niño–like state” during the warm early Pliocene into a modern-like “La Niña–dominated state” currently challenges the scientific community. ...
  • Sedwick, Peter N.; Marsay, C. M.; Sohst, B. M.; Aguilar-Islas, A. M.; Lohan, M. C.; Long, Matthew C.; Arrigo, Kevin R.; Dunbar, Robert B.; Saito, Mak A.; Smith, W. O.; DiTullio, Giacomo R. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-12-15)
    The Ross Sea polynya is among the most productive regions in the Southern Ocean and may constitute a significant oceanic CO2 sink. Based on results from several field studies, this region has been considered seasonally ...
  • Roland, Emily C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-02)
    Oceanic transform faults that accommodate strain at mid-ocean ridge offsets represent a unique environment for studying fault mechanics. Here, I use seismic observations and models to explore how fault structure affects ...
  • Boettcher, Margaret S.; Jordan, T. H. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-12-09)
    A mid-ocean ridge transform fault (RTF) of length L, slip rate V, and moment release rate dot above M can be characterized by a seismic coupling coefficient χ = A E/A T, where A E ∼ dot above M/V is an effective seismic ...
  • Lohman, Rowena B.; McGuire, Jeffrey J. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-10)
    In late August 2005, a swarm of more than a thousand earthquakes between magnitudes 1 and 5.1 occurred at the Obsidian Buttes, near the southern San Andreas Fault. This swarm provides the best opportunity to date to assess ...
  • Roland, Emily C.; McGuire, Jeffrey J. (John Wiley & Sons, 2009-06-04)
    Swarm-like earthquake sequences are commonly observed in a diverse range of geological settings including volcanic and geothermal regions as well as along transform plate boundaries. They typically lack a clear mainshock, ...
  • Benway, Heather M.; Mix, Alan C.; Haley, Brian A.; Klinkhammer, Gary P. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-08-16)
    Multi-proxy geologic records of δ18O and Mg/Ca in fossil foraminifera from sediments under the Eastern Pacific Warm Pool (EPWP) region west of Central America document variations in upper ocean temperature, pycnocline ...
  • Pahnke, Katharina; Sachs, Julian P.; Keigwin, Lloyd D.; Timmermann, Axel; Xie, Shang-Ping (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-18)
    The tropical Pacific plays a central role in the climate system by providing large diabatic heating that drives the global atmospheric circulation. Quantifying the role of the tropics in late Pleistocene climate change has ...
  • Sutherland, David A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-02)
    The subtidal circulation of the southeast Greenland shelf is described using a set of highresolution hydrographic and velocity transects occupied in summer 2004. The main feature present is the East Greenland Coastal ...
  • Sutherland, David A.; Pickart, Robert S. (2008-03-12)
    The subtidal circulation of the southeast Greenland shelf is described using a set of high-resolution hydrographic and velocity transects occupied in summer 2004. The main feature is the East Greenland Coastal Current ...
  • Pickart, Robert S.; Torres, Daniel J.; Fratantoni, Paula S. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-06)
    High-resolution hydrographic and velocity measurements across the East Greenland shelf break south of Denmark Strait have revealed an intense, narrow current banked against the upper continental slope. This is believed to ...
  • DeRuiter, Stacy L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)
    In this thesis, I provide quantitative descriptions of toothed whale echolocation and foraging behavior, including assessment of the effects of noise on foraging behavior and the potential influence of ocean acoustic ...
  • Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Johnson, Mark P.; Madsen, Peter T.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-06)
    Strandings of beaked whales of the genera Ziphius and Mesoplodon have been reported to occur in conjunction with naval sonar use. Detection of the sounds from these elusive whales could reduce the risk of exposure, but ...
  • Rao, Huanhuan; Lin, Chenchen; Kong, Hao; Jin, Di; Peng, Benrong (2013-11)
    Rapid economic growth has resulted in significant ecological degradation in many coastal areas in China. Control measures involving Marine Ecological Damage Compensation (MEDC) have been introduced to curb unsustainable ...
  • Jacobson, Dean M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-02)
    A group of thecate heterotrophic dinoflagellates (THDs), principally in the diverse and ubiquitous genus Protoperidinium, was investigated both from an ecological and an organismal perspective. When this study was ...
  • Preheim, Sarah P. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Extensive genetic diversity has been discovered in the microbial world, yet mechanisms that shape and maintain this diversity remain poorly understood. This thesis investigates to what extent populations of the ...
  • Gribble, Kristin E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    Marine thecate heterotrophic dinoflagellates likely play an important role in the consumption of primary productivity and in the trophic structure of the plankton, yet we know little about these species. This thesis ...
  • Geiselman, Joy Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
    In the New England rocky intertidal community, space is dominated by two perennial plant types, brown fucoid algae (Ascophyllum nodosum and several species of Fucus) in the mid zones and the red alga Chondrus crispus ...
