  • Behn, Mark D.; Ito, Garrett T. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-08-02)
    We use 2-D numerical models to explore the thermal and mechanical effects of magma intrusion on fault initiation and growth at slow and intermediate spreading ridges. Magma intrusion is simulated by widening a vertical ...
  • Ito, Garrett T.; Behn, Mark D. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-09-30)
    We investigate the origin of mid-ocean ridge morphology with numerical models that successfully predict axial topographic highs, axial valleys, and the transition between the two. The models are time-dependent, simulating ...
  • Ridley, W. Ian; Perfit, Michael R.; Smith, Matthew C.; Fornari, Daniel J. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-12)
    The petrology and geochemistry of a xenolith, a fragment of a melt-bearing cumulate, within a recently erupted mid-ocean ridge (MOR) lava flow provide information on petrogenetic processes occurring within the newly forming ...
  • Korenaga, Jun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
    This thesis studies the dynamics of mantle melting during continental breakups by geophysical, geochemical, and numerical analyses. The first part focuses on the mantle melting and crustal accretion processes during the ...
  • Tivey, Maurice A.; Tucholke, Brian E. (American Geophysical Union, 1998-08-10)
    A sea-surface magnetic survey over the west flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge from 0 to 29 Ma crust encompasses several spreading segments and documents the evolution of crustal magnetization in slowly accreted crust. We ...
  • Miller, Patrick J. O. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    This thesis presents data on the structure and use of acoustic signals produced by free-ranging resident killer whales. The analysis focuses on signal features that might be useful for animals to maintain contact and ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G. (Acoustical Society of America, 1983-03)
    Effects of variations in quantities influencing the backscattering cross sections of solid elastic spheres are studied through a particular case. This is that of the 60‐mm‐diam copper sphere, which is being used worldwide ...
  • Weinstein, Michael P.; Baird, Ronald C.; Conover, David O.; Gross, Matthias; Keulartz, Jozef; Loomis, David K.; Naveh, Zev; Peterson, Susan B.; Reed, Denise J.; Roe, Emery; Swanson, R. Lawrence; Swart, Jacques A. A.; Teal, John M.; Turner, R. Eugene; van der Windt, Henny J.; International Working Group on Sustainability (Ecological Society of America, 2007-01)
    Coastal ecosystems are increasingly dominated by humans. Consequently, the human dimensions of sustainability science have become an integral part of emerging coastal governance and management practices. But if we are to ...
  • Jin, Di; Lin, Jian (2010-11)
    This study attempts to identify the key factors that will make a tsunami warning system most effective, to develop a framework in which results of natural science and engineering research can be effectively integrated into ...
  • Miksis-Olds, Jennifer L.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009-03)
    Noise can interfere with acoustic communication by masking signals that contain biologically important information. Communication theory recognizes several ways a sender can modify its acoustic signal to compensate for ...
  • Aguirre, J. Dafhne; Clark, Hillary M.; McIlvin, Matthew R.; Vazquez, Christine; Palmere, Shaina L.; Grab, Dennis J.; Seshu, J.; Hart, P. John; Saito, Mak A.; Culotta, Valeria C. (2013-01-28)
    The Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi represents a novel organism in which to study metalloprotein biology in that this spirochete has uniquely evolved with no requirement for iron. Not only is iron low, but we ...
  • Andres, Magdalena; Park, Jae-Hun; Wimbush, Mark; Zhu, Xiao-Hua; Nakamura, Hirohiko; Kim, Kuh; Chang, Kyung-Il (American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-28)
    Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) index is strongly correlated with vertically integrated transport carried by the Kuroshio through the East China Sea (ECS). Transport was determined from satellite altimetry calibrated ...
  • Srinivasan, Ashwanth; Top, Zafer; Schlosser, Peter; Hohmann, Roland; Iskandarani, Mohamed; Olson, Donald B.; Lupton, John E.; Jenkins, William J. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-06-10)
    The World Ocean Circulation Experiment Indian Ocean helium isotope data are mapped and features of intermediate and deep circulation are inferred and discussed. The 3He added to the deep Indian Ocean originates from (1) a ...
  • Baba, Kiyoshi; Chave, Alan D.; Evans, Rob L.; Hirth, Greg; Mackie, Randall L. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-02-17)
    The electromagnetic data from the Mantle Electromagnetic and Tomography (MELT) experiment are inverted for a two-dimensional transversely anisotropic conductivity structure that incorporates a correction for three-dimensional ...
  • Montesi, Laurent G. J.; Behn, Mark D. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-25)
    Mid-ocean ridge morphology correlates strongly with spreading rate. As the spreading rate decreases, conductive cooling becomes more important in controlling ridge thermal structure and the axial lithosphere thickens. At ...
  • Hart, Stanley R.; Gaetani, Glenn A. (2006-04-08)
    There is growing evidence that the budget of Pb in mantle peridotites is largely contained in sulfide, and that Pb partitions strongly into sulfide relative to silicate melt. In addition, there is evidence to suggest ...
  • Ito, Garrett T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-09)
    We analyze bathymetric and gravity anomalies at five plume-ridge systems to constrain crustal and mantle density structure at these prominent oceanic features. Numerical models are then used to explore the physical ...
  • Magde, Laura S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-03)
    The formation of new oceanic crust is the result of a complex geodynamic system in which mantle rises beneath spreading centers and undergoes decompression melting. The melt segregates from the matrix and is focused to ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R.; Cramer, Scott R.; Arruda, Julie (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-01)
    This chapter is intended as an instructional guide for the removal, fixation and preservation of auditory system tissues of marine mammals. Each section describes procedures for a major ear type for marine mammals. The ...
  • Tivey, Maurice A.; Bach, Wolfgang; Seewald, Jeffrey S.; Tivey, Margaret K.; Vanko, David A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006)
    The hydrothermal systems in the Manus Basin of Papua New Guinea (PNG) were comprehensively investigated through a combination of sampling and mapping using the Remotely-Operated Vehicle (ROV) Jason, the autonomous ...
