    Gabriel T. Csanady turned 80 in December 2005 and we celebrate it with this special Progress in Oceanography issue. It comprises 20 papers covering some of the many areas that Gabe contributed significantly throughout his ...
  • Roberts, Mark L.; von Reden, Karl F.; Burton, Joshua R.; McIntyre, Cameron P.; Beaupre, Steven R. (2011-10-31)
    The National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (NOSAMS) facility at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has developed an Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) system designed specifically for the analysis of ...
  • Hester, K. C.; Dunk, R. M.; White, Sheri N.; Brewer, Peter G.; Peltzer, Edward T.; Sloan, E. D. (2006-11-14)
    Oceanic gas hydrates have been measured near the seafloor for the first time using a seagoing Raman spectrometer at Hydrate Ridge, Oregon, where extensive layers of hydrates have been found to occur near the seafloor. All ...
  • Taviani, Marco; Angeletti, L.; Ceregato, A.; Foglini, F.; Froglia, C.; Trincardi, F. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-07-12)
    The geo-biological exploration of a pockmark field located at ca. 800 m below sea level in the Gela basin (Strait of Sicily, Central Mediterranean) provided a relatively diverse chemosymbiotic community and methane-imprinted ...
  • Boissonneault, Katie Rose (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-09)
    Toxic algae are a growing concern in the marine environment. One unique marine diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, produces the the neurotoxin domoic acid, which is the cause of amnesic shellfish poisoning. ...
  • Tarrant, Ann M.; Franks, Diana G.; Verslycke, Tim A. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2012-06)
    Epizootic shell disease (ESD) has been reported widely in American lobster (Homarus americanus, Milne Edwards) in southern New England. The appearance of irregular, deep lesions—characteristic of ESD—has been associated ...
  • Orsi, William D.; Edgcomb, Virginia P.; Christman, Glenn D.; Biddle, Jennifer F. (2013-04-23)
    Scientific ocean drilling has revealed a deep biosphere of widespread microbial life in sub-seafloor sediment. Microbial metabolism in the marine subsurface likely plays an important role in global biogeochemical cycles1-3 ...
  • Salmon, Rick; Held, Issac M.; Fields, Janet; Thiffeault, Jean-Luc (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-03)
    In its millenial session, the GFD program focused on "The General Circulation of the Atmosphere." Isaac Held led the charge with an inspiring two-week introductory course, strongly supported by the lectures of Alan Plumb, ...
  • Sohn, Robert A. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-11-15)
    Binary mixing is one of the most common models used to explain variations in geochemical data. When the data being modeled are ratios of elements or isotopes, the mixtures follow hyperbolic trends with curvatures that ...
  • Baumgartner, Mark F.; Mussoline, Sarah E. (Acoustical Society of America, 2011-05)
    Passive acoustic monitoring allows the assessment of marine mammal occurrence and distribution at greater temporal and spatial scales than is now possible with traditional visual surveys. However, the large volume of ...
  • Howard, Gregory J.; Schlezinger, Jennifer J.; Hahn, Mark E.; Webster, Thomas F. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009-12-22)
    Background: Predicting the expected outcome of a combination exposure is critical to risk -assessment. The toxic equivalency factor (TEF) approach used for analyzing joint effects of dioxin-like chemicals is a special case ...
  • Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R. (American Meteorological Society, 2005-10)
    Two methods for assessing the hydraulic criticality of an observed or modeled overflow are discussed. The methods are valid for single-layer deep flows with arbitrary potential vorticity and cross section. The first method ...
  • Beliakova, Natalia Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-02)
    This thesis studies the problems of generation and maintenance of recirculations by Gulf Stream instabilities. Observations show that the horizontal structure of the jet and its recirculations suffer significant changes ...
  • Scotti, Alberto; Beardsley, Robert C.; Butman, Bradford (American Geophysical Union, 2007-10-02)
    During the summer, nonlinear internal waves (NLIWs) are commonly observed propagating in Massachusetts Bay. The topography of the area is unique in the sense that the generation area (over Stellwagen Bank) is only 25 km ...
  • Hendry, Ross MacRae (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-04)
    This thesis reports on an investigation into the structure, energetics and propagation of tidal frequency internal waves. Data from Site D, near the New England continental slope, Muir Seamount northeast of Bermuda, and ...
  • Arbic, Brian K. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-08)
    The plausibility of local baroclinic instability as a generation mechanism for midocean mesoscale eddies is examined with a two-layer, quasi-geostrophic (QG) model forced by an imposed, horizontally homogeneous, vertically ...
  • Jackson, Christopher R.; da Silva, Jose C. B.; Jeans, Gus (The Oceanography Society, 2012-06)
    Nonlinear internal waves are found in many parts of the world ocean. Their widespread distribution is a result of their origin in the barotropic tide and in the variety of ways they can be generated, including by lee waves, ...
  • Tivey, Margaret K. (Oceanography Society, 2007-03)
    In the nearly 30 years since the discovery of hydrothermal venting along open-ocean spreading centers, much has been learned about the generation of vent fluids and associated deposits. The hot, reducing, metal-rich, ...
  • Dupuis, Christian; Aubry, Marie-Pierre; King, Christopher; Knox, Robert W. O'B.; Berggren, William A.; Youssef, Mostafa; Galal, Wael Fathi; Roche, Marc (2011-02-16)
    The desertic Theban hills between the edge of the alluvial plain of the Nile and the prominent cliffs at the eastern edge of the Theban Plateau consist of imbricated tilted blocks organized in parallel groups representing ...
  • Bockheim, James G.; Kurz, Mark D.; Soule, Samuel A.; Burke, Andrea (2009-05)
    Nonsorted polygons with sand-filled wedges were investigated in lower and central Beacon Valley, Antarctica (77.82ºS, 160.67ºE) using field observations coupled with a 2-m resolution Digital Elevation Model and a ...
