Argo Development Program : final report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-06)
The purpose of the contract was to develop and place into operational status a new, combined research/inspection unmanned vehicle system called ARGO/JASON. ARGO is a high altitude search and survey vehicle for use in deep ...
A recipe for simulating the interannual variability of the Asian summer monsoon and its relation with ENSO
This study investigates how accurately the interannual variability over the Indian Ocean basin and the relationship between the Indian summer monsoon and the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) can be simulated by different ...
Geochemical proxies of North American freshwater routing during the Younger Dryas cold event
The Younger Dryas cold interval represents a time when much of the Northern Hemisphere cooled from ~12.9 to 11.5 kiloyears before present. The cause of this event, which has long been viewed as the canonical example of ...
Essays in philosophical biology
Philosophical biology, one might venture to assert, is an effort to delve as deeply as possible into the underpinnings of biological structure. Consequently the effort will be, first, to understand how continuity can be ...
Oceanography : plankton in a warmer world
Satellite data show that phytoplankton biomass and growth generally decline as the oceans’ surface waters warm up. Is this trend, seen over the past decade, a harbinger of the future for marine ecosystems?
Natural selection, microevolution and macroevolution
The use of logical validity and empirical data will show that natural selection occurs at the micro-evolutionary level but does not occur at the macro-evolutionary level.
A new family of giardial cysteine-rich non-VSP protein genes and a novel cyst protein
(Public Library of Science, 2006-12)
Since the Giardia lamblia cyst wall is necessary for survival in the environment and host infection, we tested the hypothesis that it contains proteins other than the three known cyst wall proteins. Serial analysis of gene ...
Formation of Subtropical Mode Water in a high-resolution ocean simulation of the Kuroshio Extension region
A high-resolution numerical model is used to examine the formation and variability of the North Pacific Subtropical ModeWater (STMW) over a 3-year period. The STMW distribution is found to be highly variable in both space ...
Effects of nutrients, salinity, pH and light:dark cycle on the production of reactive oxygen species in the alga Chattonella marina
Experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of nutrients, salinity, pH and light:dark cycle on growth rate and production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by Chattonella marina, a harmful algal bloom (HAB) ...
Air-sea gas transfer velocity estimates from the Jason-1 and TOPEX altimeters : prospects for a long-term global time series
Estimation of global and regional air–sea fluxes of climatically important gases is a key goal of current climate research programs. Gas transfer velocities needed to compute these fluxes can be estimated by combining ...
