  • Avsec, Dusan (E. Blondel la Rougery : Gauthier-VillarsWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1939)
    The object of the present work is a study thermoconvective eddies in a layer of air heated uniformly from below. Being given the importance that these eddies present in meteorlogical phenomena, we have tried to attain three ...
  • Iselin, Columbus O’Donnell; Woodcock, A. H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1942-07-25)
    With moderate or light winds and a clear sky the diurnal heating which occurs near the sea surface can cause a serious reduction in the range of submarine detection, especially on shallow targets. This has usually been ...
  • Turner, Harry J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1948-05-17)
    The purpose of this report is to bring together as much information as is available about the soft shell clam and the clam industry so that the Committee of Clam Technicians may have a concrete basis for discussion of ...
  • Fish, Marie Poland (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1948-08-24)
    The present report is concerned with one of the oceanic biology subjects designated by the Navy for investigation. In compliance with the assignment the objective has been (1) to assemble, analyze and where possible ...
  • Bunker, Andrew F.; Haurwitz, B.; Malkus, Joanne Starr; Stommel, Henry M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1949)
    The observations presented and discussed in this paper were obtained as part of a research project conducted under contract NObs-2083 with the Bureau of Ships of the U. S. Navy by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. ...
  • Stetson, Henry C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1949-08)
    The continental shelf off the northeastern coast of the United States was the first of our offshore coastal areas to be charted in detail by the Coast and Geodetic Survey, starting on Georges Bank in 1930. The techniques ...
  • Schevill, William E.; Lawrence, Barbara (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1950-01)
    DelphinaplMus leucas (Pallas), variously called white porpoise, white whale, or beluga, has long been known as a vociferous species. It is an arctic form, generally restricted to waters north of N. Lat. 60°, except along ...
  • Von Arx, William S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1950-03)
    During the past four years a deliberate effort has been made at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to devise methods of kinematic observation generally suited to the needs of oceanographers. One result of this work, ...
  • Redfield, Alfred C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1950-07)
    The tides of coastal embayments derive their energy from the ocean tides rather than from the direct action of lunar and solar gravitational forces. They are considered to be part of co-oscilating systems in which the ...
  • Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1951-01)
    Between July 25 and August 7, 1950 the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution conducted a survey of Great South Bay. The purpose of this study was to attempt to determine the cause of the almost complete cessation of the ...
  • Panofsky, H. A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1951-09)
    The members of the Marine Meteorology Project of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have designed equipment for the measurement or the vertical heat flux. This consists of a small vertical vane, a heated thermistor ...
  • Farmer, Harlow G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1951-12)
    The objective of the estuary studies being conducted at this Institution is to attempt an understanding of tidal flushing. Two theories have been developed, that of Ketchum employing an extension of the tidal prism ...
  • Stommel, Henry M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 195?-1960)
    The Special Committee on Oceanographic Research (SCOR) has endorsed an international cooperative program of oceanographic research and survey work in the Indian Ocean for the near future. 1961 is the year most often ...
  • Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; Redfield, Alfred C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-04)
    During the summer of 1950, The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution conducted a study of the waters of Great South Bay for the Town of Islip, New York, with a view to seeking the cause of the decline of the oyster ...
  • Stommel, Henry M.; Former, Harlow G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-10)
    The reader will quickly see that the subject matter of Chapter 3 is confined to the hydraulics of sharply stratified media, whereas real estuaries are always more or less diffusely stratified. What is more, no discussion ...
  • Ketchum, Bostwick H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-12)
    The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has been asked by the New York City Board of Water Supply to study and review recent observations on the distribution of fresh and salt water in the Estuary of the Delaware River. ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1953-05)
    Cross sections through two trade cumulus clouds are presented, showing the temperatures, turbulence, and water vapor content of the clouds and their nearby environment, the cloud slope, and the external wind profile. ...
  • Ketchum, Bostwick H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1953-07-16)
    Since the preparation of my report on the distribution of salinity in the estuary of the Delaware River (N.Y.C. Exhibit 40) a new formula governing the releases of water from storage during periods of low flow has been ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr; Ronne, Claude (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1954-03)
    Some extremely large oceanic trade-mind cumulonimbus clouds extending upwards of 40,000 ft. into a region of strong winds and intense vertical shear have been studied by means of time-lapse photography. A simultaneous still ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1954-08)
    Downdrafts, exhibiting speeds and mass transports comparable to those of the main updrafts, are a common feature of the cumulus clouds studied by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's FBI aircraft in the trade-wind region. ...
