A compilation of moored current meter and wind observations : volume VII (1968 measurements)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-07)
Summaries of wind and current measurements made with wind recorders and current meters by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution during the year 1968 are presented. Averaged quantities are presented in computer-gene ...
Physics of diurnal warm layers : turbulence, internal waves, and lateral mixing
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2017-02)
The daily heating of the ocean by the sun can create a stably stratified near-surface layer when the winds are slight and solar insolation is strong. This type of shallow stable layer is called a Diurnal Warm Layer (DWL). ...
Observations of bubbles in natural seep flares at MC 118 and GC 600 using in situ quantitative imaging
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-04-02)
This paper reports the results of quantitative imaging using a stereoscopic, high-speed camera system at two natural gas seep sites in the northern Gulf of Mexico during the Gulf Integrated Spill Research G07 cruise in ...
Regulation of South China Sea throughflow by pressure difference
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-06-12)
Sea Surface Height (SSH) data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts-Ocean Reanalysis System 4 (ECMWF-ORAS4) are used to determine the pressure difference in connection with variability of the South ...
Stratus 15 fifteenth setting of the Stratus Ocean Reference Station cruise on board RV Cabo de Hornos June 15 – 29, 2016 Valparaiso, Chile – Valparaiso, Chile
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-10)
The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing climate-quality records of surface meteorology, air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
First genealogy for a wild marine fish population reveals multi-generational philopatry
Natal philopatry — the return of individuals to their natal area for reproduction — has advantages and disadvantages for animal populations. Natal philopatry may generate local genetic adaptation but may also increase the ...
Interannual variability of the South Indian Countercurrent
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-05-26)
In the present work, we investigate the interannual variability of the South Indian Countercurrent (SICC), a major and still understudied current of the Indian Ocean circulation. To characterize the interannual variability ...
Modeling curiosity in a mobile robot for long-term autonomous exploration and monitoring
This paper presents a novel approach to modeling curiosity in a mobile robot, which is useful for monitoring and adaptive data collection tasks, especially in the context of long term autonomous missions where pre- programmed ...
The evolution of silicon transporters in diatoms
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-08-31)
Diatoms are highly productive single-celled algae that form an intricately patterned silica cell wall after every cell division. They take up and utilize silicic acid from seawater via silicon transporter (SIT) proteins. ...
