Atmospheric carbon dioxide variability in the Community Earth System Model : evaluation and transient dynamics during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-07-01)
Changes in atmospheric CO2 variability during the twenty-first century may provide insight about ecosystem responses to climate change and have implications for the design of carbon monitoring programs. This paper describes ...
Crustal structure across the Costa Rican Volcanic Arc
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-29)
Island arcs are proposed to be essential building blocks for the crustal growth of continents; however, island arcs and continents are fundamentally different in bulk composition: mafic and felsic, respectively. The substrate ...

Annual and semiannual cycle of equatorial Atlantic circulation associated with basin-mode resonance
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-05)
Seasonal variability of the tropical Atlantic circulation is dominated by the annual cycle, but semiannual variability is also pronounced, despite weak forcing at that period. This study uses multiyear, full-depth velocity ...
Active positioning of vent larvae at a mid-ocean ridge
The vertical position of larvae of vent species above a mid-ocean ridge potentially has a strong effect on their dispersal. Larvae may be advected upward in the buoyant vent plume, or move as a consequence of their buoyancy ...
Development and evaluation of electromechanical cables for deep sea buoy applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
Electromechanical (E/M cables have been developed in order to satisfy the growing need for real time data telemetry from oceanographic moorings. Several E/M cable designs have been implemented with the cooperation of ...
Geochemical tracers of extraterrestrial matter in sediments
Every year, tens of thousands of tons of cosmic dust accumulate at the Earth’s surface, representing a continuation of the accretion process that started 4.57 billion years ago. The unique geochemical properties of these ...
Universal structure of mesoscale eddies in the ocean
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-30)
Mesoscale eddies dominate oceanic kinetic energy at sub-inertial frequencies. Their three-dimensional structure has, however, remained obscure, hindering better understanding of eddy dynamics. Here by applying the composite ...
Airborne-radar and ice-core observations of annual snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica confirm the spatiotemporal variability of global and regional atmospheric models
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-26)
We use an airborne-radar method, verified with ice-core accumulation records, to determine the spatiotemporal variations of snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica between 1980 and 2009. We also present a ...
Cariaco Basin calibration update; revisions to calendar and 14C chronologies for core PL07-58PC
(Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2004)
This paper describes the methods used to develop the Cariaco Basin PL07-58PC marine radiocarbon calibration data set. Background measurements are provided for the period when Cariaco samples were run, as well as revisions ...
