Echolocation-based foraging by harbor porpoises and sperm whales, including effects of noise and acoustic propagation
(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 ...
Approaches for assessing the presence and impact of thyroid hormone disrupting chemicals in delphinid cetaceans
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
Cetacean blubber is a primary site for lipid storage, which the animal utilizes during periods of energetic stress. It is important to understand how the blubber responds to factors such as ontogeny, water temperature, ...
A deep sea docking station for ODYSSEY class autonomous underwater vehicles
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06-10)
Under subcontract to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Sea Grant Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN) program, engineers and researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) designed, ...
Active methane venting observed at giant pockmarks along the U.S. mid-Atlantic shelf break
Detailed near-bottom investigation of a series of giant, kilometer scale, elongate pockmarks along the edge of the mid-Atlantic continental shelf confirms that methane is actively venting at the site. Dissolved methane ...
Report on the Office of Naval Research Shallow Water Acoustics Workshop, April 24-26, 1991
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-01)
The results of an unclassified Workshop on Shallow Water Acoustics, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research Code 11250A, are presented. The workshop was held on April 24-26, 1991 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ...
A system for shipboard analysis of buoy data
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-11)
This report describes a software system for shipboard processing of buoy data. These data are derived from a variety of instruments installed on buoys recovered during turn-around cruises for the SUBDUCTION experiment. ...
The coastal bottom boundary layer : a note on the model of Chapman and Lentz
(American Meteorological Society, 2007-11)
The bottom boundary layer of a stratified flow on a coastal continental shelf is examined using the model of Chapman and Lentz. The flow is driven by a surface stress, uniform in the alongshore coordinate, in a ...
Measurements of sound-speed and density contrasts of zooplankton in Antarctic waters
Sound-speed and density contrasts (h and g, respectively), two important acoustic material properties, of live zooplankton were measured off the western Antarctic Peninsula during a Southern Ocean GLOBEC cruise conducted ...
Elevators - autonomous transporters for deep sea benthic sample recovery
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-01)
Two classes of sample recovery devices have been fabricated for use with the Jason deep diving remotely operated vehicle (ROV). One class includes custom-built, autonomous vertical transporters (AVTs) that are capable of ...
Notes on the 1968 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1968)
The general circulation of the oceans was the topic of concentration for the 1968 WHOI Summer Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
