(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-05)
This report is a compilation of abstracts distrbuted at the Coastal Ocean Processes Symposium: A Tribute to Willam D. Grant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from September 27 - September 30, 1998.
Using the Continuous Plankton Recorder to investigate the absence of North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) from the Roseway Basin foraging ground
North Atlantic right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) abandoned Roseway Basin, located off southeastern Nova Scotia, for a seven-year period (1993-1999). The objective of this study was to examine the availability of the ...
Mechanisms regulating large-scale seasonal fluctuations in Alexandrium fundyense populations in the Gulf of Maine : results from a physical–biological model
Observations of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine indicate several salient characteristics of the vegetative cell distributions: patterns of abundance are gulf-wide in geographic scope; their main features occur ...
Mixing and entrainment in the Red Sea outflow plume. Part I : plume structure
(American Meteorological Society, 2005-05)
When the salty and heavy water of the Red Sea exits from the Strait of Bab el Mandeb, it continues downslope into the Gulf of Aden mainly along two channels. The 130-km-long “Northern Channel” (NC) is topographically ...
Imaging procedures for stranded marine mammals
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-01)
This section provides an introduction to biomedical imaging techniques and guidelines for diagnostic imaging of marine mammals to assist with both live examination and necropsy procedures. The procedures described are ...
Low-frequency variability of the Indian monsoon-ENSO relationship and the tropical Atlantic : the "Weakening" of the 1980s and 1990s
(American Meteorological Society, 2007-08-15)
The Indian monsoon–El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) relationship, according to which a drier than normal monsoon season precedes peak El Niño conditions, weakened significantly during the last two decades of the twentieth ...
Multichannel detection for wideband underwater acoustic CDMA communications
Direct-sequence (DS) code-division multiple access (CDMA) is considered for future wideband mobile underwater acoustic networks, where a typical configuration may include several autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) ...
Abrupt climate change in the Atlantic Ocean during the last 20,000 years : insights from multi-element analysis of benthic and planktic foraminifera and a coupled OA-GCM
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-09)
Minor and trace element records from planktic and benthic foraminifera from Atlantic sediment cores, as well as outputfrom a coupled OA·GCM, were used to investigate the magnitude and distribution of the oceanic response ...
Mineralization of ancient carbon in the subsurface of riparian forests
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-05-10)
Microbial activity in saturated, subsurface sediments in riparian forests may be supported by recent photosynthate or ancient (>500 ybp) soil organic carbon (SOC) in buried horizons. Metabolism of ancient SOC may be ...
