Variations of the global net air–sea heat flux during the “hiatus” period (2001–10)
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-05-15)
An assessment is made of the mean and variability of the net air–sea heat flux, Qnet, from four products (ECCO, OAFlux–CERES, ERA-Interim, and NCEP1) over the global ice-free ocean from January 2001 to December 2010. For ...
Structure of the western Somali Basin
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1967-07)
The western Somali Basin in the northwestern Indian Ocean is covered by thick deposits of terrigenous sediments. Seismic reflection profiles show, however, the northern and southern parts to be very different. The northern ...
How well would modern-day oceanic property distributions be known with paleoceanographic-like observations?
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-04-08)
Compilations of paleoceanographic observations for the deep sea now contain a few hundred points along the oceanic margins, mid-ocean ridges, and bathymetric highs, where seawater conditions are indirectly recorded in the ...
Bottom array specifications for the low frequency acoustic seismic experiment (LFASE)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-10)
The Low Frequency Acoustic Seismic Experiment (LFASE) was conducted to measure sound propagation and ambient noise above, at and below the sea floor. To this end an array consisting of four geophone nodes was introduced ...

Recording of unknown number of Common minke whales made by Uher recorder, LC 50 hydrophone.
Sound Cut, Record Number 6702700C
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-04-30)
Recording of 2 Ribbon seals. One downsweep and an in-air growl.
Long-baseline acoustic navigation for under-ice autonomous underwater vehicle operations
The recent Arctic GAkkel Vents Expedition (AGAVE) to the Arctic Ocean’s Gakkel Ridge (July/August 2007) aboard the Swedish ice-breaker I/B Oden employed autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) for water-column and ocean ...
A method for inverting ratio–ratio data to estimate end-member compositions in mixing problems
I discuss the general problem of fitting mixing models to ratio-ratio data, and derive formulae for applying non-linear Maximum Likelihood methods for parameter estimation. To estimate mixing model parameters in the ...
Constraints on the vital effect in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite by oxygen isotopic modification of seawater
In this study, we show that there are independent controls of 18O/16O and 13C/12C fractionation in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite due to the contrasting kinetics of each isotope system. We demonstrate that ...
Along-shelf current variability on the Catalan inner-shelf (NW Mediterranean)
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-22)
We examine the circulation over the inner-shelf of the Catalan Sea using observations of currents obtained from three Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (two at 24 m and one at 50 m) during March–April 2011. The along-shelf ...
