The 1962 Summer Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1962-11)
Notes on the 1973 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973)
Nonlinear wave interactions formed the theme of the fifteenth summer program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Owen Phillips was our principal lecturer on this subject, He chose ...
Notes on the 1970 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1970)
The principal lectures of this twelfth Summer Program were given by Joseph Pedlosky of the University of Chicago. On the following page one sees Dr. Pedlosky demonstrating advanced effects caused by rotation and ...
Evaluating global ocean carbon models : the importance of realistic physics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-15)
A suite of standard ocean hydrographic and circulation metrics are applied to the equilibrium physical solutions from 13 global carbon models participating in phase 2 of the Ocean Carbon-cycle Model Intercomparison Project ...
Observations and modeling of wave-supported sediment gravity flows on the Po prodelta and comparison to prior observations from the Eel shelf
A mooring and tripod array was deployed from the fall of 2002 through the spring of 2003 on the Po prodelta to measure sediment transport processes associated with sediment delivered from the Po River. Observations on the ...
Acoustical measurement of nonlinear internal waves using the inverted echo sounder
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-10)
The performance of pressure sensor–equipped inverted echo sounders for monitoring nonlinear internal waves is examined. The inverted echo sounder measures the round-trip acoustic travel time from the sea floor to the sea ...
Damping estimation, response prediction and fatigue calculation of an operational single pile platform
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-01)
A comparison between predicted and measured damping controlled dynamic response of an operational single pile platform (AMOCO's South Marsh Island Block 33B platform) is presented. In the predictive analysis, a finite ...
VERTIGO (VERtical Transport In the Global Ocean) : a study of particle sources and flux attenuation in the North Pacific
The VERtical Transport In the Global Ocean (VERTIGO) study examined particle sources and fluxes through the ocean’s “twilight zone” (defined here as depths below the euphotic zone to 1000 m). Interdisciplinary process ...
State and local governments plan for development of most land vulnerable to rising sea level along the US Atlantic coast
Rising sea level threatens existing coastal wetlands. Overall ecosystems could often survive by migrating inland, if adjacent lands remained vacant. On the basis of 131 state and local land use plans, we estimate that almost ...
Expanding dispersal studies at hydrothermal vents through species identification of cryptic larval forms
The rapid identification of hydrothermal vent-endemic larvae to the species level is a key limitation to understanding the dynamic processes that control the abundance and distribution of fauna in such a patchy and ...
