Dynamics of the equatorial undercurrent and its termination
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-01)
This study focuses on the zonal weakening, eastern termination and seasonal variations of the Atlantic equatorial undercurrent (EUC). The main and most original contribution of the dissertation is a detailed analysis ...
Fluid flow and sound generation at hydrothermal vent fields
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-04-08)
Several experiments are presented in this thesis which examine methods to measure and monitor fluid flow from hydrothermal vent fields. Simultaneous velocity, temperature, and conductivity data were collected in the ...
Lateral continuity of basement seismic reflections in 15 Ma ultrafast-spreading crust at ODP Site 1256
The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) initiated drilling at Site 1256D in the Guatemala Basin, about 1000km off the East Pacific Rise to penetrate plutonic rocks, anticipated to be relatively shallow in this region, formed at ...
Biogeochemistry Data collected from the R/V Oceanus cruises : OC399-03, OC408-01 and OC408-02 from the Northwestern Sargasso Sea roughly 35-28°N and 58-68°W, in water depths exceeding 4200 meters, from February 14, 2004 to March 14, 2005 (New Production project)
(Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2011-10-17)
This New Production During Winter Convective Mixing Events (New Production) Project biogeochemistry dataset includes the following data: nutrients, dissolved oxygen, organic matter and alkalinity. Detailed methods for all ...
Mesozooplankton biomass estimates from MOCNESS tows collected from R/V Oceanus cruises : OC415-01, OC415-03, OC404-01 and OC404-04 from the Sargasso Sea from June 14, 2004 to August 24, 2005 (EDDIES project)
(Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, 2011-10-13)
The Eddies Dynamics, Mixing, Export, and Species composition (EDDIES) mesozooplankton biomass data set includes estimates of mesozooplankton biomass determined from MOCNESS plankton net tows. Zooplankton biomass estimates ...

Volatile cycling of H2O, CO2, F, and Cl in the HIMU mantle : a new window provided by melt inclusions from oceanic hot spot lavas at Mangaia, Cook Islands
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-28)
Mangaia hosts the most radiogenic Pb-isotopic compositions observed in ocean island basalts and represents the HIMU (high µ = 238U/204Pb) mantle end-member, thought to result from recycled oceanic crust. Complete geochemical ...
Recent changes in the Labrador Sea Water within the Deep Western Boundary Current southeast of Cape Cod
Water properties measured by the central mooring in the Line W mooring array southeast of Cape Cod document a large character shift during the period of November 2001 to April 2008. The observed temperature, salinity and ...
Cadmium and phosphate in coastal Antarctic seawater : implications for Southern Ocean nutrient cycling
Cadmium is a biologically important trace metal that co-varies with phosphate (PO43- or Dissolved Inorganic Phosphate, DIP) in seawater. However, the exact nature of Cd uptake mechanisms and the relationship with phosphate ...
Heat and salinity budgets at the Stratus mooring in the southeast Pacific
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-28)
The surface layer of the southeast Pacific Ocean (SEP) requires an input of cold, fresh water to balance heat gain, and evaporation from air-sea fluxes. Models typically fail to reproduce the cool sea surface temperatures ...
