Experimental and seismological constraints on the rheology, evolution, and alteration of the lithosphere at oceanic spreading centers
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
Oceanic spreading centers are sites of magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes. In this thesis I present experimental and seismological constraints on the evolution of these complex regions of focused crustal ...
Optimal bioeconomic management of changing marine resources
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-09)
Marine populations are increasingly subjected to changing conditions whether through harvest or through broad-scale habitat change. Historically, few models have accounted for such trends over time, and even fewer have ...
South Pacific hydrologic and cyclone variability during the last 3000 years
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-04-18)
Major excursions in the position of the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ) and/or changes in its intensity are thought to drive tropical cyclone (TC) and precipitation variability across much of the central South Pacific. ...
Geophysical and geochemical survey of a large marine pockmark on the Malin Shelf, Ireland
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-01-19)
Marine pockmarks are a specific type of seabed geological setting resembling craters or pits and are considered seabed surface expressions of fluid flow in the subsurface. A large composite pockmark on the Malin Shelf, off ...
High-sensitivity measurement of diverse vascular plant-derived biomarkers in high-altitude ice cores
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-07-03)
Semi-volatile organic compounds derived from burned and fresh vascular plant sources and preserved in high-altitude ice fields were detected and identified through use of recently developed analytical tools. Specifically, ...

Dynamics of extracellular superoxide production by Trichodesmium colonies from the Sargasso Sea
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-05-12)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are key players in the health and biogeochemistry of the ocean and its inhabitants. The vital contribution of microorganisms to marine ROS levels, particularly superoxide, has only recently ...
The management of ocean and coastal resources in Colombia : an assessment
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-06)
This report summarizes the results of an 18-month study of coastal and marine resources development in Colombia. The study was a result of a request by the Direccion General Maritima y Portuaria (DIMAR) of the Colombian ...
