Design of a stable floating platform for air-sea interaction measurements
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-12)
The design of an oceanographic platform can be defined as the rational specification of the platform dimensions and geometry. This specification is usually the result of an iterative process which compares the ...
An unusual suctorial montacutid bivalve from the deep Atlantic
(Cambridge University Press, 2000-10-31)
The shell and internal anatomy of the montacutid bivalve Mysella verrilli is described for the first time. The species is remarkable in that the oesophagus has developed into a suctorial proboscis. This has been accompanied ...
Hydrology in the Sea of Marmara during the last 23 ka : implications for timing of Black Sea connections and sapropel deposition
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-02-06)
Sediments deposited under lacustrine and marine conditions in the Sea of Marmara hold a Late Quaternary record for water exchange between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Here we report a multiproxy data set based ...
WHOI Hawaii Ocean Timeseries Station (WHOTS) : WHOTS-2 mooring turnaround cruise report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-03)
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Hawaii Ocean Timeseries (HOT) Site (WHOTS), 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii, is intended to provide long-term, high-quality air-sea fluxes as a coordinated part of the HOT ...
Ocean circulation and dynamics on the west Antarctic Peninsula continental shelf
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
Observations of current velocity, temperature, salinity and pressure from a 2-year moored array deployment and four hydrographic cruises conducted by the United States Southern Ocean GLOBEC program on the western Antarctic ...
Warm core rings : an interdisciplinary study of warm core ring physics, chemistry, and biology; R/V Endeavor, R/V Knorr, R/V Oceanus April 1982 cruise reports
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982)
Mixing variability in the Southern Ocean
(American Meteorological Society, 2015-04)
A key remaining challenge in oceanography is the understanding and parameterization of small-scale mixing. Evidence suggests that topographic features play a significant role in enhancing mixing in the Southern Ocean. This ...
Anomalous porosity preservation and preferential accumulation of gas hydrate in the Andaman accretionary wedge, NGHP-01 site 17A
In addition to well established properties that control the presence or absence of the hydrate stability zone, such as pressure, temperature, and salinity, additional parameters appear to influence the concentration of gas ...
Anomalous chlorofluorocarbon uptake by mesoscale eddies in the Drake Passage region
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-02-23)
The role of mesoscale eddies in the uptake of anthropogenic chlorofluorocarbon-11 (CFC-11) gas is investigated with a 1/20° eddy-resolving numerical ocean model of a region of the Southern Ocean. With a relatively fast ...
Phosphorous cycling in the Gulf of Maine : a multi-tracer approach
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-09)
Knowledge of temporal and spatial nutrient turnover and export rates is of great importance for a variety of investigations, ranging from nutrient limitation to contamination uptake and removal. However, there are few ...
