Comprehensive study of a heavy fuel oil spill : modeling and analytical approaches to understanding environmental weathering
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-06)
Driven by increasingly heavy oil reserves and more efficient refining technologies, use of heavy fuel oils for power generation is rising. Unlike other refined products and crude oils, a large portion of these heavy oils ...
The Flying Fish, an untethered oceanographic sensor platform with acoustic homing capability
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-05)
The Flying Fish is an autonomous, streamlined, gravity driven underwater vehicle of high speed (15 knots) vertical excursions to depths of 6000 meters. This prototype uses short baseline acoustic interferometry to guide ...
Timescales of magmatic processes and eruption ages of the Nyiragongo volcanics from 238U-230Th-226Ra-210Pb disequilibria
The silica-undersaturated Nyiragongo volcanics, located in the East African rift, have globally unique chemical compositions and unusually low viscosities, only higher than carbonatite lavas, for terrestrial silicate ...
A group of junior faculty members and UCAR junior scientists convened in Boulder, CO on June 16-18, 2003 for discussion on future scientific directions. This report summarizes the goals and products of one of the three ...
Upper-ocean response to Hurricane Frances (2004) observed by Profiling EM-APEX floats
(American Meteorological Society, 2011-06)
Three autonomous profiling Electromagnetic Autonomous Profiling Explorer (EM-APEX) floats were air deployed one day in advance of the passage of Hurricane Frances (2004) as part of the Coupled Boundary Layer Air–Sea Transfer ...
Sea surface temperature and salinity variability at Bermuda during the end of the Little Ice Age
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-07-09)
We use geochemical and isotope measurements on a 225-year old brain coral (Diploria labyrinthiformis) from the south shore of Bermuda (64°W, 32°N) to construct a record of decadal-to-centennial-scale climate variability. ...
Advanced Engineering Laboratory project summaries 1993
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-12)
The Advanced Engineering Laboratory of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is a development laboratory within the Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering Deparment. Its function is the development of oceanographic ...
Moist synoptic transport of CO2 along the mid-latitude storm track
(American Geophysical Union, 2011-05-12)
Atmospheric mixing ratios of CO2 are strongly seasonal in the Arctic due to mid-latitude transport. Here we analyze the seasonal influence of moist synoptic storms by diagnosing CO2 transport from a global model on moist ...
